Winter getaway from Canberra Weekly 

Looking for the ultimate winter getaway from Canberra, editor of the Canberra Weekly Julie writes about the gem of the NSW Sapphire Coast, Bermagui. Julie was supported by Sapphire Coast NSW for a winter getaway in Bermagui. She stayed at the Bermagui Beach Hotel, dinned at Il Passaggio, gin tasting at North of Eden, visiting many art studios and joined us for a Kayak tour of the Bermagui River.   

Julie’s opening for the article sums why we love the Sapphire Coast NSW in the winter. “Even in winter, the NSW Sapphire Coast sparkles. Although cool, temperatures are usually several degrees warmer than Canberra this time of year and the seaside crowds are thinner on the ground than in summertime. It’s the ideal place for a mid-winter getaway”.

Julie continues to write: “At 8.30am on Saturday by the banks of serene Bermagui River, we met Jess Taunton, of Navigate Expeditions, which runs “immersive, regenerative travel experiences for the environmentally conscious traveller” on the NSW South Coast. Our experience took the form of a gentle, three-hour kayak tour up river led by expert guide, Lawrence, a long-time local and former manufacturer of custom ocean kayaks, who shared his knowledge of the historical, cultural and environmental features of the area – the traditional lands of the Yuin people, aka ‘Black Duck people’.” Check out the full online media article and excitingly, it should be in the printed magazine mid August. 

Thanks so much to Julie for joining us for a winter kayak tour on the Bermagui River, thanks to the Sapphire Coast NSW for including our experience on Julie’s itinerary. Finally, thank you to our wonderful tour guide Lawrence, kayaking and nature guide expert. We are so lucky and grateful to have him on our team. We receive nothing but glowing reviews and feedback about his kayaking tuition and local knowledge of the area.  

Visit our Bermagui Kayak Tour page for more information about this tour. We are operating all winter long and it’s one of our favourite seasons to be on the water. Cool crisp mornings and clear blue skies (mostly!) Read the full article on the Canberra Weekly website
