Bermagui is a fisherman’s paradise.
If you are here to fish, please take note:
- Park your boat as advised by management. We understand your equipment is valuable and this is heavily considered when allocating your apartment and parking space. We have now installed CCTV for additional peace of mind, however still secure your valuables.
- Use our walk-in freezer to store bait and catch (open for use Jan-March only). It is located behind the laundry near the bins. Wear shoes at all times. Please leave any un-used bait in the allocated tub in the freezer if you don’t plan on taking it with you upon departure. Believe us when we say it is not a fun job rinsing bins that was home to week-old bait.
- Use designated fish cleaning bays and boat launching ramps (opposite the bait and tackle store & at the main boat ramp in town). Strictly no fish cleaning or sorting of fish at The Anchorage. Zak at the local butchers does a great job of smoking fish.
- There are sufficient hoses around the resort for the wash down of your boat, please don’t disconnect fittings or move hoses around and always be mindful of water usage. We have also placed council bins around the resort for your boat rubbish, please refrain from filling up the small trash cans in the BBQ area.
- Please respect our oceans, our marine life, and each other.
Every year we welcome hundreds of fisherman to The Anchorage. We love to see our guests return each season, whether it is an entire fishing club or one boat, you are valued guests and your respect towards us as hosts and of our facilities is greatly appreciated.
If you are unsure about any of our facilities within the resort or in town, PLEASE ASK US.
