Visit the Sapphire Coast, New South Wales

BERMAGUI – TATHRA – MERIMBULA – PAMBULA – EDEN

The seaside towns you love were unaffected by the bushfires and the locals would love to see you soon.

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 too.
