Selecting holiday accommodation in Narooma, New South Wales

Surrounded by mountains on one side and the sea on the other, Narooma, in New South Wales, is a picture perfect Australian seaside town. Even its name suggests perfection, from an Aboriginal word to describe the clarity and purity of the coastal waters offshore.

Narooma is situated on the southern fringes of the Eurobodalla Coast, on the South Coast, part of a 100km stretch of coastline that contains some of Australia’s most beautiful beaches and natural habitat. Its warm summers and mild winters make it the perfect all-year round destination while there is an extensive selection of holiday rentals to suit every budget. Narooma is around five hours’ drive from Sydney and three hours from the capital, Canberra.

Life’s a beach

Narooma is surrounded by water on three sides – the waters of Wagonga River and its estuary flowing into the Pacific - and these waterways helped establish Narooma as a port, then a shipbuilding centre before today driving its economy as a tourist destination with a wide choice of holiday accommodation that includes villas, apartments and houses.

Its unspoiled beaches are a haven for those keen on sunbathing, swimming, snorkelling and, of course, surfing, particularly on the aptly-named Surf Beach. Families will be thrilled by the many child-friendly beaches, too, with their safe swimming, paddling channels and rock pools.

Charter boats leave Narooma daily for the rich fishing grounds offshore and whether you’re an experienced fisherman or casting your line for the first time, the trip is sure to be a thrilling one, particularly if you head for deeper waters where game fish such as marlin and tuna can be found. There are also good fishing opportunities in the Wagonga estuaries and inlet.

Narooma and its coastline is part of the Batemans Marine Park and so are protected from commercial fishing. It also offers super wildlife spotting. Just offshore is Montague Island Nature Reserve and sightseeing trips offer the chance to see seals, penguins and

Take a sightseeing boat out to Montague Island to see seals frolicking on the shore and the penguin colony in their natural habitat. And the island also offers great whale watching during springtime as humpback whales make their way down the coast on their way to their mating grounds in Antarctica. Look out for dolphins, too, as they playfully swim and leap around the boats.

Rock of ages

One of the more unusual attractions at Narooma is the Australia Rock. Carved into the rocks where the Wagonga inlet reaches the sea is the shape of Australia, caused by centuries of tides, although local legend suggests it was actually created accidentally when the chains holding an anchored ship eroded the rock.

Overlooking the town of Narooma is Mount Gulaga. Named Mount Dromedary by Captain Cook because of it resembled the hump of a camel, the mountain is now known by its original Aboriginal name and is one of the highest peaks on the South Coast with eight different rainforest types to be found on its slopes.

Close to Gulaga are the heritage villages of Central Tilba and Tilba Tilba. Central Tilba has been restored to its period past with antiques, arts, crafts and woodworks, jewellery and art stores to browse. Tilba Tilba is also a National Heritage site situated directly at the base of Mount Gulaga, making it the ideal starting point from which to explore the mountain.

For a more sedate holiday pastime, check out Narooma golf course, one of the top public courses in Australia – its clifftop course has spectacular ocean views out to Montague Island and to the Glass House Rocks.

Narooma hosts several interesting festivals during the year, the most popular of which is the Oyster Festival. Held in April, the festival is the ideal way to sample the amazing oysters grown locally. From your base in your holiday accommodation, you can also enjoy the Boats Afloat Festival that takes place each November. Both events feature lots of live music and fun activities for all the family.

A ray of sunshine

Narooma’s remarkably temperate climate means it enjoys warm summer days where the temperatures typically reach between 29°C and 32°C. Its winters are also wonderfully mild with the average temperature 17.5°C, making the town a super year-round destination from which to choose holiday houses or self-contained accommodation and explore this picturesque region.

What a warm welcome after a long drive! Milk in the fridge, fresh flowers and fruit, snack for kids, soft towels on the beds. Everything is thoughtfully put together, dogs balls, brushes and mats out for dogs. Kids loved the pool table and we loved the darts. Perfect for family bonding. Everything was provided for comfort, cottage was neat and comfortable to stay in. Will stay again, they are the perfect hosts. Thank you for having us!

A small piece of Heaven

5 of 5
Firstly I would like to thank Alan & Annie for sharing their piece of Paradise with our family. The view from the verandah is so gorgeous we basically spent our whole weekend on it. The house is clean and well stocked, it has all you need for a short break away. Bermagui has some wonderful cafes and a Supermarket. We also had dinner at the Camel Rock Brewery which was great for casual dinning. The beaches around the cottage are pristine and my Grandson had the best time paddling in the waves. I felt so lucky to have all this beauty right at my front door. It was so hard to leave but I will be back. Many Thanks Karen
