Bega is a small town on the South Coast of New South Wales, Australia.


The place name Bega is derived from the name "big camping ground".

Bega has the summer choice for water activities - as well as horseriding, bushwalking and other leisure sports - the weather at other times doesn't preclude such fun, and in fact, opens more doors for your holiday.

Bega is unique in Spring, when you have the opportunity to swim or check the possibility of skiing, such is its reasonable proximity from the Snowy Mountains.

This makes the town an obviously popular destination in winter, also for those keen for camping with its many areas to facilitate that night under the stars. Bega is well known for its famous cheese.
