Sapphire Coast, New South Wales

Can’t believe we’re writing this again, but here goes….like all of us as a nation, the Sapphire Coast community are doing our best to self isolate and help contain the national spread of COVID-19.  And right now on the advice of our local council and government, we’re asking visitors to delay their plans just for the moment.  Sincere thanks to all of you who planned a break here to support us.  But now we just need to wait a little bit longer. 

In the meantime, we’ll be working hard to keep our digital spaces filled with images of our beautiful region.  So please, stay in touch with us via our website, instagram and facebook.  And feel free to tell us what you love about the Sapphire Coast and we’ll see if we can post it for you too.

Stay safe, stay home and hopefully we’ll see you as soon as it’s safe to travel.
