NAROOMA MEANS CLEAR BLUE WATER IN DHURGA LANGUAGE.

Southbound Escapes Narooma Breakwall

Narooma  is a place where the rainforest meets the sea. With its abundance of natural beauty, stunning beaches, wildlife and local produce it is no wonder this has been a gathering place for thousands of years.

Seals on Rocks at Montague Island Narooma NSW

Just off the coast of Narooma is Barunguba Montague Island the second largest island off NSW but one of the most highly certified conservation areas in the world. One of the most unique and popular experiences is to snorkel/dive with the seals followed by a guided tour of the island with a National Parks and Wildlife guide. 

Pod of Whales

Whale watching season is mid-August to early November and the stretch of water between Narooma and the island is known as the humpback whale highway which makes it for perfect whale watching. The sunset penguin tour from September to January is an experience and not to be missed.

THE SOUTH COAST IS KNOWN AS THE OYSTER COAST. LET US SHOW YOU WHY?

Southbound Escapes David Rogers Photography Narooma Breakwall and Wagonga Inlet

The Wagonga Inlet produces arguably the best rock oysters in Australia. The unique merroir of the Narooma oysters is said to be due to the geological formation of the Wagonga Inlet with its tidal flow and the rare sea grasses which add to their unique taste.
