About the Bega Valley
Bega Valley is located on the far south coastline of New South Wales, on the Princes Highway. Also known as the Sapphire Coast, Bega Valley is nestled between the Bega and Brogo Rivers, with the forested Brogo Ranges west of the river, and the river flats stretch eastwards to the sea. It's within 20 minutes to 1 and a half hours' drive from the quiet coastal inlets of Bermagui, Tathra, Tuross, and Twofold Bay, and about 2 and a half hours' drive from the nation's capital, and the snowfields of Thredbo and Perisher.
Bega Valley has established itself as not only the perfect location for a sea change, but a leader in the Australian dairy industry.
