So much of what you love is here, waiting and unchanged.

So come visit soon.

Seeing your face will bring a smile to ours.


They’re all open.  And lots of the little towns and villages in between.

Our award-winning oysters are tasting great, the coffee and produce, restaurants and cafes are as good as ever, and our towns and villages are open, with stories and experiences to share.

Whether you’re a family of fishers, nature lovers, foodies, or all three, we have so much on offer and we invite you to come visit and be a part of our recovery process. In letting us look after you, you’ll also be looking after us.

While some of the forests, parks and wildlife have been affected, much of what you love is here, waiting and unchanged.

So, take a road trip in from the north or the south, bring that #emptyesky, stay for a bit and stock up on all our local goodness.  Visitor are so important for recovery and healing so make sure you bring a lotta love and kindness as many in our region are still hurting and some towns, like Cobargo and Wonboyn aren’t open at all just yet.  But be assured, your visit will make a big difference.

For the latest information and the best local knowledge, contact one of our local Visitor Information Centres  or your accommodation provider.  They’ll be happy to help you out

Staying Here

We’ve got flexible accommodation deals – as now we’ve got lots of accommodation available.  So contact your favourite accommodation provider directly, visit for inspiration or contact one of our Visitor Information Centres and let them help you put together a new family holiday or short break on the Sapphire Coast.

Getting Here

The Princes Hwy is currently closed in parts due to the NSW & East Gippsland fires. Which gives you a chance to go the other way round.   Make the most of this diversion by spending some time in our cool capital – Canberra or stopping off at the mighty Murray river when you travel through the border cities of Albury Wodonga.    Check out our map for more detail.

Various highways to Yass, then Barton Highway to Canberra, then the Monaro Highway to Cooma, then on the Snowy Mountains Highway to the Sapphire Coast.

The Monaro Highway to Cooma, then on the Snowy Mountains Highway to the Sapphire Coast.

Two options.  Via the cool capital, Canberra or the Princes Highway A1 to the Sapphire Coast.

Please check NSW’s for updates prior to your travel, and in and from Victoria on  .  Its also sensible to check local conditions during the summer period by staying up to date with with Fires Near Me for NSW and emergency vic gov for Victoria
