OUR LOCAL TIPS
- Our favourite picnic spot is the Wagonga
picnic Area on the Wagonga Scenic Drive at the back of the Wagonga
Inlet - the blue wrens hang around to get your crumbs.
- Do the Wagonga Scenic Drive, it is a lovely
drive through some rainforest areas.
- There are some great walks -an easy nature
walk is the walk by Dalmeny's Mummaga Lake, accessed from the
Highway just north of the Dalmeny turn off and a challenging
minimum four hour walk is Mt Dromedary, with a primordial
rainforest near the summit.
- We like swimming at Kianga beach but it is not
patrolled. The main Narooma beach near the golf course is
patrolled during the season.
- There is a very safe swimming area with a
shark proof net, just inside the bar. It is accessed through the
Apex car park near the boat launching ramp on the north side of
- John's favourite fishing hole is off any of
the beaches. Some good ones are 1080 & out of Mystery Bay and
are nice beaches too.
- Fresh seafood can be bought at a number of
shops but our favourite is on the jetty on the waterfront on the
north side of the bridge.
- Our favourite restaurant is Simply Seafood on
the Marina in Forster's Bay. It has won the best regional seafood
restaurant award for NSW a number of times.
- The locals recommend any of the clubs for a
less expensive meal
- "Love at First Bite" at Tilba Tilba has a good
lunch and whilst there explore the antique shops and
- The Tilba Valley Winery at Corunna Lake
(signpost on highway on way to Tilba) puts on a very nice lunch
and you can sample the wines too!
- Central Tilba has a fabulous cheese factory
and award winning cheeses. It also has a fantastic woodwork
- Bermagui and Cobago are worth a visit.
- The best place to buy sunflower seed for the
birds is the grain shop in Glasshouse Rocks Rd in the industrial
area at the top of town. It is worth putting the sunflower seed
out as the birds are a circus, great entertainment!
