“We've just completed an outstanding house-swap with Keith & Trish. Their home is in a beautiful setting and is very comfortable and cosy. The location of Wallaga Lake is excellent for experiencing all the wonderful things the New South Wales south coast has to offer. Among other things we watched whales off the coast of Bermagui and enjoyed strolling around the heritage listed rural village of Central Tilba. When home, we watched kangaroos peacefully grazing on both the front and back lawns....how good is that! Keith & Trish are a charming couple and we're so glad we got to meet and enjoy a meal with them prior to the swap commencing. Communicating with them was very easy and they left our home in immaculate condition. Many thanks to you both for a memorable house swap. ”

Where is it?
We are on the coast between Sydney (5 hours by road)and Melbourne. Canberra is 3 hours. There is an airport at Moruya, 50 minutes away, which connects to Sydney and Melbourne. The nearest town is Bermagui, a small, charming fishing village with a modest but strong art scene (Sculpture by the Ocean each year) some very good restaurants, and superb seafood. There is an excellent artisan bread shop, several restaurants including seafood, vegetarian, authentic Indian, African/Euro, German. Fishing charters are available, and bigame fish such as marlin and tuna are frequently caught. Our specific neighbourhood of a few dozen houses built on a peninsula that juts into Wallaga Lake. The neighbourhood is quiet and serene. We have travelled extensively in Australia and overseas and this is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt places we have ever seen. We have a double kayak which can be used. There is an excellent surfing beach within a kilometre and dozens more nearby including calm water swimming. There are a number of decent to spectacular oceanside golf courses within half and hour's drive. There are lots of beautiful walks around the oceans, estuaries and mountains. Kayaking in the lake is wonderful, with a sanctuary a short paddle away. There are large numbers of swans, and more than a hundred species of birds. Sometimes even seals will turn up in the lake. The main southern migration of whales to Antarctica passes Bermagui, and for a couple of months
it is easy to spot whales from the headlands. Or you can get close with with various boats that offer whale watching trips.
