Bermagui is famous for its fishing. Deep sea, rock or beach, there's fish to be caught all year 'round whether you're a pro or dipping your first line. But there's more to Bermagui than fishing. The area abounds with marine life including seals, penguins, dolphins and often you'll catch a pod of whales cruising past.
Enjoy a cruise to discover an abundance of marine life including seals, penguins and dolphins. Back on land enjoy a stroll around the seaside township... relax at a cafe or browse through craft shops. The dramatic scenery where cliffs meet the sea make Bermagui a picturesque place to visit.
