This town is a major draw card if you love animals. Seals bask on the break wall and huge stingrays fill the estuary on dusk. The bird life is prolific and if you are a little adventurous you can take a short boat ride to Montague Island and snorkel with New Zealand and Australian fur seals. This was a huge highlight for our family and we recommend it. The seals are curious, playful and seem really excited to have us visit their colony. We ventured out with the awesome guys from Underwater safaris, the Roobois tea and home baked blueberry and chia seed muffins were an added bonus!
The whole south coast has spectacular rocks along the shore lines. You don’t have to be a photographer to appreciate the views. Australia Rock is the perfect place to watch the sunrise, then take a walk along the break wall and spot the seals. Glass House rock is another spot to check out along the coast,unfortunately for us, after all the rain it was like a giant mud slippery dip to get down the cliff…eeeek!! There are ample walking tracks to explore, so take your time.
The beaches are crystal clear and super inviting, Take a dip at the protected bar beach or venture to the other side of the break wall to get amongst the open ocean swells. There are many surfing options and so few people to share them with. We found some great beach, reef and rock walls setups south and north of Narooma.
Batemans Bay is where the 3 wild sunset and sunrise images are taken, which is the next major town north from Narooma. We had 2 consecutive nights and mornings of burning skies to enjoy. The South Coast has again provided and I think many more adventures will be had along this stretch in the future.
Let us know of your favourite places in Southern NSW, we would love to hear from you.
