Bermagui is located on Australia's South Coast, between the more touristed Batemans Bay and Eden, New South Wales.
Only a trickle of folk journey to this midpoint, leaving it for the fishermen and women to sail out a dozen miles offshore, to where the continental shelf drops. These are marlin waters. Made famous by the American angler and author, Zane Grey. Warmest in April and May. NB the winds will be chill.
