In Bargo, settlers first recorded sightings of the koala, lyrebird and wombat. Ex-convict, John Wilson, noted the tree animals in his diary describing the lyrebird as a pheasant, hence the name Pheasants Nest, and recorded the koala as being known to the Aboriginal people as Cullawine. The area boasts two sanctuaries. Wirrimbirra Sanctuary, a local Aboriginal word meaning sanctuary, is preserved as a remnant of the original Bargo Brush, once the haunt of bushrangers. The property includes excellent bushwalking tracks, commercial native plant nursery, wildlife enclosures and cabin accommodation. The unique Dingo Sanctuary is located in a natural setting for Australia’s native dog and is a great learning experience. Bargo is the starting point for a visit to the splendid Mermaid Pools, accessible only on foot.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
