Things To Do At Wallaga Lake

Spend Time by a Lake on the south coast of New South Wales Australia

I immersed myself in nature during the lakeside stay at Wallaga Lake. I witnessed the breathtaking hues of the sunrise painting the sky on the other side of the lake. And, I marveled at the sunset and watched the moon gracefully go down.

I explored the nearby beaches and was captivated by Camel Rock's formation. I drove into the coastal town, of Bermagui, with its harbour. And, I embarked on an adventure in the surrounding national parks that left me in awe of their natural wonders.

You take a thousand pictures to get a good one, like oysters with the rare pearl. It's true, and I used to say I'm not a good photographer. If anyone took as many pictures as I do, they'd be standing up here, too. It's a lot to do with generosity, just taking thousands and thousands of pictures, and then where the art comes in is the editing. ~ Nan Goldin

On the other side of the lake, I can see Gulaga Mountain and Gulaga National Park. This part of the park was previously the Wallaga Lake National Park. The park was handed back to its Aboriginal original owners in 2006.

Art allows you to imbue the truth with a sort of magic, so it can infiltrate the psyches of more people, including those who don't believe the same things as you. ~ Wangechi Mutu

Wallaga Lake Sunset NSW Australia by Jennifer Empey

Watch the sunset. I created the image of the sunset.

By my intimacy with nature I find myself withdrawn from man. My interest in the sun and the moon, in the morning and the evening, compels me to solitude.

Where is Wallaga Lake in New South Wales?

Driving from the north on the Princes Highway, I turned left onto Bermagui Rd, then right onto Wallaga Lake Rd. Then, I drove across a one-lane bridge, Wallaga Lake Bridge, and it crossed over the lake before Payne's Island. So I knew I found it.

If you would like to miss the one-lane bridge, then stay on Princes Hwy until Cobargo where you'll turn left at Cobargo Bermagui Rd, then you'll turn left into Wallaga Lake Rd.

And, it's about 7 km from Bermagui town on the Sapphire coast.
