If you haven’t been to Bermagui on the far south coast of New South Wales then you need to get this lovely little village on your must-visit list. With its spectacular harbour, renowned fishing, natural attractions and an exciting events calendar, there are so many reasons to turn off the Princes Highway and towards this charming coastal town. Book your stay at the Reflections Bermagui and choose your own adventure from our list below.

1. But first, coffee

Start your morning at Mister Hope, an espresso bar and permanent art project that delivers the perfect blend of coffee with the creations of talented local artist Matt Chun.

2. To market, to market

Bermagui is gaining quite a reputation for its quality local produce. Wander to the Fishermen’s Wharf Growers Market on Thursday afternoons for all the deliciousness you can handle.

3. The Blue Pool


Directly behind Reflections Holiday Parks Bermagui is the famous Blue Pool, a natural ocean pool that provides the perfect scenery for a refreshing dip. Keep an eye out for the seals!

4. The main event

From the musical majesty of the biennial Four Winds festival to the artistic wonders on display as part of Sculpture Bermagui, you’ll often find something to do that’s just that little bit special.

5. Get your kit off

Say what now? You heard correctly. Bermagui is home to Armands Bay beach, a ‘clothing-optional’ destination known as one of the prettiest and most accessible nude beaches in the world.

6. Love to wine?

Sampling local wines is a great way to get a taste for the area. Visit Mimosa Wines or Rusty Fig Wines and enjoy a fabulous drop amidst gorgeous surroundings.

7. This will float your boat


Bermagui boasts one of the safest, all-weather harbours in the region, complete with large launching ramp. Coupled with its famous fishing, what better excuse to get the boat out?

8. Seafood and eat it

Does Bermagui really have the best oysters on the south coast? Well, it’d be rude not to do some taste testing. Visit Blue Wave Seafood at the Fishermen’s Wharf and see what you think.

9. Safe swimming

Not a strong swimmer, or perhaps you have kids in tow? You’ll love dipping your toe in the calm, inviting waters of Horseshoe Bay. Adjacent to the park, it’s great for snorkelling too.

10. Good as gold

History buffs will love a tour of Montreal Goldfields, Australia’s only seaside goldfield. Learn about the gold rush of the late 1800s and the intriguing details of the great unsolved Bermagui mystery.

And this list is just the beginning. For an unforgettable trip that will create treasured memories for years to come, book your stay at Reflections Bermagui.
