Things To Do

Narooma is known for its natural pristine beauty and is one of the most un-spoilt and picturesque seaside towns on the east coast of Australia, and the world for that matter . The surrounding area has beautiful sandy beaches, rivers, lakes, rugged escarpments, and national parks.

Mountains on the one side and the Pacific Ocean and Montague Island or Barunguba (aboriginal name) on the other you will be amazed. The area is known for being relaxed and laid back and has not succumbed to the excesses of coastal development.

Narooma boasts a variety of surf beaches, a spectacular golf course, whale watching (September November), recreational fishing, sightseeing, scenic drives, boat charters, fantastic bushwalks and valley rainforests.

A special treat is to take a stroll in the nearby tiny National Trust village of Central Tilba or on the Mill Bay boardwalk which takes you out over the water so you can fully absorb this wonderful seaside town.

Narooma used to be known as Noorooma, the Aboriginal name for clear blue water. The Narooma port was originally used for gold and timber export. Seamen and steamers braved the hazardous Narooma bar crossing with their cargos. The surrounding areas were also known for cheese and dairy cattle. Todays industries also include tourism, oyster farming and fishing.

Capturing the panoramic views from most rooms and the restaurant, the Whale Motor Inn captures the beauty of this special coastal village with its magnificent inlet and rugged ocean coastline.
