The largest lake in southern New South Wales, Wallaga Lake sits seven kilometres north of Bermagui along Wallaga Lake Road. Fishing there is fabulous and the serenity of the natural surroundings make it equally good for swimming, boating, sailing, water skiing, bushwalking and bird and wildlife watching. Picnic and toilet facilities are available.
There are various places to stay around the lake, including three caravan parks with camping sites, cabins and boat hire.
Wallaga Lake is home to the Umbarra, or black duck - totem of the Yuin-Monaro people. Merriman Island, within the lake, is significant to the local Aboriginal people. This island is not accessible to the public and landings are not permitted. Aboriginal middens and artefacts such as cutting stones have been found in the lake area. Please help to conserve these relics by not disturbing them in any way.
