Narooma is on the south-east coast of New South Wales (NSW), it’s three-hours drive south-east of Canberra, five-hours drive south of Sydney and eight-hours drive north of Melbourne. It was established in 1881 and the name comes from the Aboriginal for ‘clear, blue water’ which lived up to its name, although when we visited, there was rough seas.
It’s a very interesting walk on Surf Beach which has ancient geological significance and beauty. On the southern end is the imposing Glasshouse rocks which is a photographer’s delight. The Geological Society of Australia has dated these rock as between 510 and 440 million years old. It’s perceived to be the most photographed rocks next to the 12 Apostles.
