Bermagui Seaside fair
Saturday 11/03/2017 7:00 am
Bermagui NSW

The Bermagui Seaside Fair has been held each year on the second weekend in March since 1998 and now attracts up to 10,000 people. This is an excellant opportunity to expose SES and the current programs to the broader public. It is also a great opportunity for SES to build better relationships with both the local businesses and public (and given the numbers not so local ones!)
