The Coast Road from Tathra to Bermagui is one of the most spectacular drives on the Far South Coast. Spotted gum forests surrounding unspoilt bays and beaches in Mimosa Rocks National Park. Original timber bridges crossing rivers, creeks and estuaries. Award winning oysters growing in pristine lagoons. Rolling green hills with a backdrop of densely wooded mountains. For all these reasons, the area has attracted many creative people. Since the Tathra to Bermagui Coast Road was sealed, some unique, quality art and fine food venues have opened, adding further inspiration to this beautiful coastal drive and making it a compelling experience.
The Oyster Pot sells Sydney Rock Oysters from the pure pristine waters of Wapengo Lake. The oysters are shucked on a daily basis to ensure their taste and freshness is at its best. Tasting and opening tips are always on offer. The pristine waters of the Sapphire Coast create oysters that win hearts and awards. From Bermagui to Tathra, Merimbula, Pambula and Wonboyn, you'll find a subtle difference in each harvest. Take a taste-test tour and savour the flavours.
A diversity of water environments, salt and freshwater lakes, an attractive lagoon and creek and a magnificent coastline, along with an extensive network of walking tracks make a great variety of activities possible. Tura, Bournda and Wallagoot beaches are popular for swimming, surfing and beach fishing. The shallows of Wallagoot Lake offer safe swimming. Sailing, power boating and water skiing are all catered for on the lake and visitors are invited to use the launching ramp at the Wallagoot lake boat club area, for which the club charges a launching fee. Bushwalkers, wildlife watchers and photographers may enjoy the park's many walking tracks to scenic points such as Bournda Island and Bournda Lagoon. Camping is also available at Hobart Beach, camp fees AUD10 per adult, AUD5 per child, per night.
