The Sapphire Coast, also known as the Bega Valley, is the most southerly coastal region in NSW.
From Wallaga Lake in the north, where you can go on a cultural tour with local aboriginals, through to Wonboyn Lake, a great fishing spot just north of the Victorian border, this region offers many alternatives for the tourist.
The main commercial and government centre of the Sapphire Coast is Bega. Bega's coastal centre of Tathra is very popular with locals and holiday makers.
Merimbula is located around beautiful lakes and their entrance to the Pacific and along the neighbouring coast.
Further south, Eden is well known for its historical association as a centre for whaling and now for its fishing and timber industries.
