HDP: Postcard from Narooma, NSW

North Narooma, NSW, (1 of 1) March 2015

Surf Beach, NSW


Glasshouse Rocks

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.

Things to see and do includes: Cycling, Golf, Walks, Bush walks, Diving, Snorkelling, Boat Charters, Fishing Charters, Fishing, Whale Watching and the obvious, Wining and Dining.

When travelling past this area, make sure you stop and take a look – it’s well worth it!


About Retired2Travel

My passion has been for many, many years landscape photography so when the chance came up to retire early, in order to travel, I took it! It made sense then to marry the two (travel and photography) and create this blog. I hope you enjoy it :)

  6. It really was Ruth. The sort of beach you could spend a fair bit of time exploring, hearing the waves crash and smelling the salt spray!
