Holiday Accommodation in Barragga Bay, NSW, Australia

Barragga Bay is just 10 minutes south of the seaside town of Bermagui, on the sapphire coast of New South Wales in Australia. Tucked away in a small tranquil bay, it offers spectacular holiday accommodation and holiday homes for those visitors who just want to get away from it all, and have nothing but the sounds of the sea and the songs of the birds to keep them company.

Stunning natural surroundings make Barragga Bay a true escape for the mind and the soul, with hidden forest holiday cottages, in amongst the thick coastal brush, seaside holiday villas and all within walking distance of some of the most pristine beaches in New South Wales. Not known as the sapphire coast for nothing, hiring a holiday home here will be a truly rejuvenating getaway experience.

Things to See and Do

Fishing

People who already know about the peaceful gem of Barragga Bay, will know that it is one of the most preferred fishing spots on the sapphire coast. Way back when in the 1930’s, an American author came to the area and who took the opportunity to start a new trend called game fishing here. The following grew and the area has never looked back. Whether you are a novice, experienced game fisher or deep sea fishing enthusiast there are some excellent fishing opportunities here and in the nearby Bermagui, a short 5 minute drive away.

Kids can also join in on the fishing there being plenty of safe fishing areas in the pools, lakes and in and around the beaches on the coast. For all your fishing information, boat hire, fishing charters, rod hire and the like, you will find all that you need in your holiday rental or holiday accommodation.

Forests and National Parks

The deeply forested areas of Barragga Bay and surrounds are part of the charm that is evident everywhere at your holiday accommodation. All around the bay area, deep forested areas, natural reserves and national parks have excellent photographic, bushwalking and picnic spots for the entire family to enjoy. With more than 10 national parks that are easily accessible from your holiday home in Barragga Bay, there is a different area to explore every single day.

The Wadbilliga National Park is a true isolated wilderness, which is home to the largest of New South Wales completely undisturbed water reservoirs, and a glorious array of wildlife. Hike the short 3km trail up to the Tuross Falls from the Cascades, and when you return you can pitch camp at the Cascades. Totally and utterly undisturbed by modern infrastructure, the mountainous national park is home to wombats, possums, echidnas, platypus, swamp wallabies and the eastern grey kangaroo.

Wallaga Lake is the infamous home of the legendary black duck, or Umbarra. The Umbarra is protected by the Yuin-Monaro people, as the black duck is their symbol that represents everything about them. Outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers will be blown away by the natural beauty of the lake and the surrounds; you are able to book your perfect holiday cottage or holiday home right along the edges of the lake’s water. Take your early morning coffee onto the deck of your holiday villa and watch the swans glide through the water collecting their little ones as they go about their day to day activities.

The Montreal Goldfields are little out of the way of Barragga Bay, but worth the short drive which is about 17 km out of town to the north, on the Wallaga Lake Road. When gold was discovered on the beach in the late 1800’s, a surge of people descended on the region and miners rushed in from Sydney and surrounding areas on cargo boats, and a real live gold rush was born.

The unique goldfield run right into the sea and is the only goldfield in Australia that does. An historic tale of mystery, geology and community surrounded the goldfields, giving them a mystical entity. Parts of the fields have been preserved, and experienced volunteer guides will take you through the fascinating journey on tours every day. Visitors can only access the goldfields with a guide for safety reasons, so it will be a good idea to check up on the tour times that are posted in your holiday rental.

Climate

The wonderfully temperate climate of Barragga Bay makes this the perfect all year round holiday destination. It is a summer rainfall area with the day time average temperatures of the summer months, from September to April reaching a high of 25C and the winter months reaching 15C and going down to a cool 8 C at night. All the holiday accommodation in the bay will have all the necessary comforts to keep their visitors comfortable during their stay.

Getting there from the UK

The closest main airport to Barragga Bay is Canberra. From there visitors can take internal connecting flights to Moruya or Merimbula. You can then hire a car and enjoy the absolutely majestic short drive along the coast, picking up the Wallaga Lake road into Barragga Bay. Pick up the keys to your holiday accommodation, unpack the car, put your feet up and watch the sun go down in paradise.

5 of 5
What a warm welcome after a long drive! Milk in the fridge, fresh flowers and fruit, snack for kids, soft towels on the beds. Everything is thoughtfully put together, dogs balls, brushes and mats out for dogs. Kids loved the pool table and we loved the darts. Perfect for family bonding. Everything was provided for comfort, cottage was neat and comfortable to stay in. Will stay again, they are the perfect hosts. Thank you for having us!

A small piece of Heaven

5 of 5
Firstly I would like to thank Alan & Annie for sharing their piece of Paradise with our family. The view from the verandah is so gorgeous we basically spent our whole weekend on it. The house is clean and well stocked, it has all you need for a short break away. Bermagui has some wonderful cafes and a Supermarket. We also had dinner at the Camel Rock Brewery which was great for casual dinning. The beaches around the cottage are pristine and my Grandson had the best time paddling in the waves. I felt so lucky to have all this beauty right at my front door. It was so hard to leave but I will be back. Many Thanks Karen
