Sapphire Coast Week of Golf

Saturday 17th October, 2020 - Sunday 25th October, 2020

Now entering it’s 40th year, the annual Sapphire Coast Week of Golf is the high point of the golfing calendar for the Pambula Merimbula Golf Club and for the Far South Coast region at large.

Described by the influential Inside Golf magazine as ‘the finest tournament of its type in Australia’, the competition annually attracts around 700-800 entrants from every state and territory as well as numerous overseas visitors from such places as the United Kingdom, Canada, Singapore and New Zealand.

Highly regarded for its friendly atmosphere and professional organisation the tournament has encouraged many return visits from golfers, some having participated for more than 30 years.

The Week of Golf comprises nine days of women’s, men’s and mixed competitions. The week concludes with the Pambula Merimbula Men’s Open Championship on the final Saturday and Sunday.

Eden Whale Festival

Friday 30th October, 2020 - Sunday 1st November, 2020

Whale tails in Merimbula on the Sapphire Coast

Whales play on the Sapphire Coast.

It’s an oceanic migration like no other, and Eden has been an important part of it for centuries.

Celebrate the Humpback Highway with sightings from sea and shore, performances, exhibitions and music, and feast on local produce while whales play in Twofold Bay.

Held in and around the port, the festival embraces our maritime and bush heritage and celebrates with a huge party and fireworks on the Saturday night.

It’s the most unique whale watching experience the nation has to offer, and one that Australian Geographic ranked number one for whale watching destinations in Australia in 2014.

The whales can be seen in large numbers in the town’s stunning Twofold Bay, whether you are in a boat or on shore with a picnic of local produce.
