  • Swim at sheltered Horseshoe Bay

    Horseshoe Bay is immediately across the main street of Bermagui from the shopping centre, with adjacent parks and playing fields. It is sheltered from most weather and sea conditions, making it ideal for children. Those more interested in surfing have a choice of nearby Beares (just south of Blue Pool) , Haywards or Mooreshead beaches. The second...

  • Appreciate the umm, err, ahhh ….

    This interesting steel object appeared on the grass verge, adjacent to the boat harbour not long ago. Apparently it has caused quite a degree of local controversy – not least about what it is supposed to represent.I think my title would be ’Swirling into infinity’, but feel free to use your imaginations!

  • Rockfishing is not for the inexperienced

    Rockfishing is a common pursuit on the rocky headlands of Australia’s coasts. It can bring excellent results, but also can be perilous – particularly if seas are high. If you are inexperienced, seek expert advice before trying it: this is not a recommended way to feature in news headlines!The headlands on the south coast at Bermagui are popular...

  • Swim in the Blue Pool

    Bermagui has two excellent tide-filled swimming pools among the rocks – one for adults and one for children, known collectively as 'The Blue Pool'. Apart from safety and fresh salt water, the Blue Pool also features spectacular views of the coast. It was financed for the town by a wealthy benefactor, William Dickenson, who moved there to retire in...

Bermagui Nightlife

    Bermagui Country Club

    by tiabunna Written Apr 1, 2006

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Bermagui Country Club is typical of licensed clubs throughout NSW. It welcomes visitors, who are able to enjoy the licensed dining room, have a drink in the bar, or play the poker machines.

    Although I have listed the Club under 'nightlife', it also offers an (apparently excellent) 18 hole golf course and lawn bowls.

    Dress Code: Respectable casual clothes.

Bermagui Off The Beaten Path

  • Opals in Cobargo

    Opals are Australia's national gemstone. They come in a range of colours, from very pale milk opal to black opal - but share one common point, the brilliant flashes of light they produce.The owner of Colour Flash Opals in Cobargo has a mine in the opal fields at Lightning Ridge, NSW. So he very sensibly spends the summers near the beach in his shop...

  • Cobargo: the 'working village'

    Cobargo is somewhat less busy now than some years ago, when it grew as an important intersection. Since then the banks have closed, the roads have developed, and now the work is mostly carried out by craftspeople and by shops selling their wares. (Photo 2) If the anklebiters are becoming a little restless in the car, there also is a very good play...

    Mt Dromedary over the boat harbour

    Favorite thing: Captain Cook was the first known European to sight these shores, in 1770. He gave the prominent mountain in the background its name of Mt Dromedary, because its shape reminded him of a camel’s back. It also appears in my heading photo for this page.

    The villages of Tilba Tilba and Central Tilba nestle alongside the mountain.
