Like a local

Explore, taste and immerse yourself in the Sapphire Coast through the eyes of a local.

Some of our most mouthwatering food, scenic and secret hideaways and adventures are best discovered with the help of a local. Here are some of our local’s favourite days so take some tips or just do it all…

A day at Narek Galleries

Art, Beaches And Blue Eye Romesco

When she’s not being the creative mastermind behind Narek Galleries, Karen O’Clery likes to keep life simple. A picnic, a wander through local galleries, a love of home grown food and an appreciating eye for beauty. Her perfect day will take you from Tathra to Bermagui.

See Karen’s day here.



SUP on Merimbula Lake

Play, Rest, Feast On Merimbula Lake

Lake side living is paramount to Merimbula locals like Michael Dixon of Seashells Merimbula, who works out, plays and dines with his family in all the best places. Join him as he takes a run, shares a table with friends, adventures with his children while his wife relaxes on the beach, and watches the sun go down with a feed of fresh fish and chips. See Michael’s day here.




Jenny Robb enjoys a day in Twofold BayPaddle, Dive And Dine On Twofold Bay

Our local waterways and beaches are Jenny Robb’s home away from home. A passionate advocator for our temperate marine environment, she lives on the beautiful Towamba River at Kiah, near Eden.

Kombi friendly camp sites on the Sapphire Coast

Harry Menrath and his Kombi.

Kombi Escapades from an Avid Camper

Jack of all trades Harry Menrath loves to hook the tinny onto one of his Kombis and head off for the day, or preferably for a week or two. His favourite campsites are always by the water and include estuaries at Kalaru/Tathra, south in Ben Boyd National Park and just over the border to Croajingolong National Park and Wallagarah River.
