Bermagui Main Street

Located 378 km south of Sydney via the Princes Highway, is the small  fishing port of Bermagui, situated on the estuary of the Bermagui River.

Established in the 1830s for the local dairy farmers, the town was quickly developed into a productive fishing harbour due to its proximity to the edge of the continental shelf. This provides for some easy to access deep sea fishing grounds for amateur, deep sea and big game fishing. The harbour has a safe all weather entrance, ideal for boats, with launching ramp facilities. The beaches offer great salmon fishing during the summer months and the lakes as well as fishing are abundant in prawns, and other local delights such as Flat Head, Trevally, and Brim.

Spring brings the warm ocean currents, when marlin and yellow fin tuna swim close to the coast. It is an ideal time for charter boats, divers, deep-sea and big-game fishers.

Although gold was found on the Bermagui River late in the 19th century, the rush was short lived, due to disappointing finds. Today Bermagui's main industry is fishing, dairy, timber and tourism.
