If you’re driving from Canberra or Sydney, drop into Guerilla Roasters in Moruya for a coffee or to stock your holiday larder with fresh-roasted beans.  If you want to ensure the coffee making in your holiday home is up to scratch, book your group into a Coffee Experience in the Roastery. No excuses for a bad coffee on this getaway!

LUNCH: Oyster Farmers Daughter

Start your week with a lunch in the sun at pop-up cocktail and oyster bar, Oyster Farmers Daughter. 

Tash and her team have set up a fun pop-up bar right next to her parents’ oyster shed, so you’ll get the freshest oysters along with prawns and fish and chips in a casual and friendly setting.  Tash loves to experiment with cocktails and there’s an adventurous cocktail list for you to try.

DINNER: Party at your place

You’ve booked an amazing Air BNB with a view over the Wagonga Inlet or Dalmeny Beach, so you want to spend some time there, right?  But who wants to cook on their first night of holiday? You’re in luck because Mr Bold Catering is right here in Narooma. 

To celebrate your first night on the Gourmet Coast, host a cocktail event or dinner party for your friends.  Glam it up with Mr Bold Catering.  They will craft a menu to complement the unique style of your event.

You can also stock up the larder of your group’s getaway house with a selection of Mr Bold Catering’s meals, available from their kitchen.

COFFEE STOP: Pistachio

Rise and shine, you’re on the road to explore beautiful Bermagui today. But not before you drop by this chilled coffee stop.  There are delights in store for anyone seeking a gluten free treat with their coffee fix.  And if you’re a lover of records, this is a place to talk about vinyl with the owner-barista while he pours you a smooth coffee.

SWIM: THE BLUE POOL

If you’re in Bermagui, The Blue Pool is an essential stop.  This iconic seapool is great for a quick dip or a long snorkel.  It’s home to sea creatures of the friendly variety and you’ll find the braver locals there year-round.  The viewing platform on the clifftops above the pool afford great views over the passing parade of humpback whales in spring.

CELLAR DOOR: Breakfast Creek Vineyard

Meet winemaker Lucy Wilson at her vineyard in Coolagolite, just outside Bermagui.  This unpretentious cellar door is all about having a fun time with your friends.  The cellar door is open on certain days only, but Lucy is more than happy to open for private groups.  Whether you want a short tasting or a tour or a full vineyard picnic experience with hammocks, lounges and firepits, she can plan it for you. 

Stock up for the rest of your week or for your home cellar.

Picnic at Breakfast Creek Vineyard
Cattlemen of old drove their herds along the stock routes between Cobargo and Bermagui in search of new pasture and would stop at the creek in Coolagolite to breakfast. 

DINNER: Camel Rock Brewery

It has been a big day, but it’s not over yet.  There’s more fun to be had at the relaxed Camel Rock Brewery, Bar and Grill. Try a beer paddle of the local brews made in-house. The generously-sized, American-styled grill meals will fill you up to keep the party going.  For some after-dinner exercise, try your hand at mini golf right next to the outdoor beer garden. 

After that huge day your drivers from Southbound Escapes or Bermi & Beyond will take you home.  There might even be singing on the way.
