  1. BERMI BACK IN BUSINESS ABOUT TO HAPPEN
    Bermagui - Holiday town
January/February
calendar
Saturday 11 January

The end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020 have been a stressful time for Bermagui and the surrounding districts.  Our friends and neighbours in Cobargo and Quaama have been devastated by the bushfire that struck early on New Year's Eve and Bermagui and nearby towns have been under severe threat.  The Surf Club was used as an evacuation centre from 31 December until 2 January and then Bermagui itself was evacuated and all the town's businesses were closed down.  The beach at Horseshoe Bay was also closed during this time.  
 
We're relieved and excited to announce that BERMI IS BACK IN BUSINESS.

The Surf Club recommenced regular patrols on Saturday 11 January, the town's businesses are open, and we would like to welcome everyone to town for some sun, surf, superb coffee, fine cuisine and sports such as golf or barefoot bowls.

Hope to see you soon.


  1. JUST HAPPENED... ABOUT TO HAPPEN
    Evacuation Centre at Bermagui Surf Club
Tuesday 31 December

The bushfire that devastated Cobargo and Quaama in the early hours of New Year's Eve and threatened Bermagui and surrounding areas resulted in the Bermagui Surf Clubhouse being opened as an evacuation centre about 3.00am that day.

About 5,000 evacuees were processed during the two days it was operating. We owe thanks to so many people for their assistance that it's impossible to identify them individually.  Bermagui SLSC members were ably supported by crews from the George Bass Marathon who were camping here on the Monday evening, members of the community who turned up and took on any job that needed doing, local doctors and nurses who volunteered their services, businesses that donated food and drinks, and emergency services who all worked for many hours processing evacuees, assisting those injured and providing information on what turned out to be a difficult day with the situation changing so rapidly.
