If you fancy your nature raw and unspoiled, Narooma on the NSW South Coast is a gift from God. To your east you have the beach and shoreline, touched by nothing more menacing than the waves of the South Pacific or a snared fish. To the west pristine forests and parks stand guard over a trove of native flora and fauna - bushland tailored for a tranquil, reflective bush-walk or, if you are in an adventurous mood, a kayaking rush.
Just 9km offshore Montague Island and its resident colonies of penguins, fur seals and sea birds await your camera and, of course, in the waters beyond marlin and other game fish are ready for your challenge.
While Narooma has long been high on the list of destinations for all schools of anglers, the treasures beneath the sea are attracting more and more divers every year. Most of the divers are drawn to the peerless underwater world of Montague Island and its diverse and captivating marine life.
The annual Blues and Rockabilly Festival, held each October long weekend, offers a great blend of international and local acts performing on a multi-stage site.
