NSW Road Trip on the South Coast of New South Wales Australia

I drove from Wallaga Lake to Bermagui on Wallaga Lake Rd along the Sapphire Coast on my way to Mimosa Rocks National Park NSW Australia.

Bermagui is a town situated along the coast. As you drive into the town you'll notice the harbour with the boats at the jetty in the Bermagui River. And, you'll see all the fishing rods standing tall in the boats.

Bermagui Visitor Information Centre

At the Bermagui Visitor Information Centre, I made a stop to find out about visiting Mimosa Rocks National Park.

Parking was at a 45-degree angle with the rear to the curb only for vehicles under 6 meters. This was the second town that I had noticed parking like this.

Travel Photography at Bermagui Harbour

Bermagui Harbour

On the way back, I made a stop at the harbour with the boats on the Bermagui River. And, sat there to watch what was happening on the quiet sunny day.

You can hire fishing charters. And, wildlife cruises to Montague Island where you can see, for example, penguins, dolphins, sealions, and sea birds.

One Lane Bridges

Along the way on the Tathra - Bermagui Road, there were many one-lane bridges.

This means that only vehicles driving in the same direction can cross them at the same time. So, you can find yourself waiting for the other vehicles to pass over the bridges before you had a turn.

Cuttagee Beach, Lake, Creek, and Bridge

 

One-lane bridge, in particular, is the Cuttagee Bridge over the Cuttagee Creek which is pictured below.  It is situated about seven and a half kilometers out of town. The bridge has a load limit of 22.5 tons gross. In addition, heavy vehicles can only drive at ten kilometers per hour over it.

On one side there is the expansive Cuttagee Lake that narrows into Cuttagee Creek. And, on the other side is Cuttagee Beach looking far out to the South Pacific Ocean.

Tree with Red Flowers

Then, I noticed the tree with barren branches except for some red flowers. I'd seen them a lot driving around New South Wales. This time, there was an opportunity to make a stop and take some photos.
