#van life in Bega
Welcome RV’ers, Caravanners and Campers
Bega, the heartland of our shire and the business capital of our coast isn’t just about cheese. Heritage buildings line the main streets, filled with bespoke shops and galleries and nod to the proud dairying heritage of the area. Yet a complete departure to all this history is the uber contemporary Bega Valley Regional Gallery, home to ever changing stories and exhibitions from all over the world.
Only a few minutes walk from the centre of town you can stroll around the beautiful Bega lagoon, lined with shady she-oak trees, stunning weeping willows and masses of bird life – it really is a perfect place to stop, sit and relax. But about that cheese – make sure you do visit the Bega Cheese Heritage Centre when you’re town, it’s a fascinating insight into the history of the area (as is the Pioneers Museum on Bega Street) and some of their most award winning products can’t actually be bought anywhere else.
