Centrally located within the Bega Valley the Bega area was
originally inhabited by a group of aboriginal tribes collectively
known to each other as the Yuin Nation, their main campground based
at Wallaga Lake was the first NSW Aboriginal community to be granted
title deeds under the 1983 Land Rights Act. Today the group runs the
Umbarra Aboriginal Cultural Centre and Tours, operating tours of
local Koori sacred sites, ochre painting, bark hut building, and
spear throwing lessons.
Whether its whale watching from Merimbula
or deep see game fishing at Bermagui there is much to enjoy, with activities as varied as
wine tasting, bushwalking, horse-riding, canoeing in Brogo, surfing, golf, beaches, as well as
visiting the many towns and villages including Candelo, Kameruka,
Bemboka, Tathra, Tilba Tilba, and Wolumla, to name but a few.
