What to do on Narooma’s Montague Island

Just off the picturesque coastal town of Narooma lies one of the jewels in the Eurobodalla crown — Montague Island. The site of an historic lighthouse, Montague Island is also home to the biggest colony of both Australian and New Zealand fur seals in NSW.

If you’re keen to get up close and personal with these gorgeous animals, known as the dogs of the sea, then jump on board with local character ‘Wazza’ from Montague Island Discovery Tours. Wazza runs many tours, but perhaps his best tour is the chance to snorkel and swim with the seals. Friendly, inquisitive and playful, the seals of Montague Island are always up for interacting with curious humans, making this tour one of the best animal experiences in the world!

If you’re keen to learn more about the indigenous history of the Eurobodalla and the local Yuin people, Minga Cultural Experiences also offers a range of fascinating local tours, guided by local elder, Patricia Ellis. As a keeper of ancient knowledge, Patricia shares many facets of her culture, from smoking ceremonies and bush foods, to Dreamtime Stories and more.

If you seek accommodation in Narooma, Southbound Escapes offers two, three-bedroom and three-bathroom apartments. Both apartments are individually-styled, making them feel more like homes. Fully equipped and open plan, the apartments have one thing in common: breath-taking views out over Narooma’s stunning Wagonga Inlet. It’s the kind of view that never grows old!
