SAGE Farmers Market

The SAGE Farmers Market was born out of a demand for quality, local food and fresh produce.

The farmers market is a convenient weekly market for consumers to access locally grown or harvested food directly from local farmers, growers and producers under safe and controlled conditions. And it’s also fun to look through the stalls displaying local products and super fresh produce!

This community market is one of Eurobodalla’s most popular market events, and the SAGE farmers market is also one of Australia’s best. 

SAGE Farmers Market has been twice awarded most outstanding farmers market by ABC’s Delicious magazine. It’s awarded not only for the authenticity and quality of fresh and homemade produce, but for the atmosphere of this charming community market.

View Whales From Land

Whale watching from land can be a rewarding experience. If you can’t get out on a whale watching tour you can still get to have a whale watching experience from shore. 

Many whales come close to sure during the spring migration where you can observe whales behaviour. Humpback whales are commonly sighted but you may also see other whale species.

Bays & Coves

Coves and bays offer calmer conditions, generally with more protection from ocean swells and winds. Bays and coves make an ideal beach environment for families, swimming and snorkelling.

The protected conditions also make bays and coves ideal options for launching your kayak or getting out on your SUP. If you prefer surfing, check out our beaches section on this page.

Whale Watching Tours

From late winter through spring daily whale watching tours depart from Narooma, and depending on whale movements and numbers, also from Batemans Bay. Sea conditions, whale sightings and the stage of the annual migration will dictate how often whale watching cruises are available.

Your whale watching adventure will be led by an experienced skipper or guide. They will usually know where to find a pod of whales, often only minutes from the port. While there is never a whale guarantee, the odds of spotting whales and other marine life are very good mid season when whale numbers are high.

 There are strict regulations that restrict approaching whales in boats but whale behaviour shows that  often these curious ocean mammals will swim right up to stationery vessels for a bit of “people watching” and they don’t mind putting on a bit of a show. Make sure you have your camera ready to capture the amazing experience and the spectacular sight of whales breaching.

This is no Gold Coast and you definitely won’t find a Bondi lookalike in this part of the world. Often hidden by a border of tall native eucalypts and nestled between two headlands, many of Eurobodalla’s gorgeous beaches (around 83 all up) are places you need to work a little harder to find. But it’s definitely worth the effort.

Long, windswept beaches open to the ocean can make you feel like you have been shipwrecked on a deserted coast. It’s not uncommon to find yourself making the only footprints in the sand. Eurobodalla beaches are rarely crowded and often secluded, which is a rare find these days.

We’ve listed the best of our beautiful beaches for you to explore. Whether you like to swim or surf, fish or soak up the sun by the sea, we have the right beach for you.

Gulaga Mountain Walk

Managed by New South Wales National Parks, Gulaga Mountain is within the Gulaga National Park and is one of the best walks to experience the natural environment of the hinterland of the Great Dividing Range in Eurobodalla. Gulaga mountain is a place of significant spiritual and cultural significance to the local indigenous community. A guided walk by local Yuin people will give walkers a cultural experience and deeper appreciation of the mother mountain. 

 The steep track up the mountain was built for gold miners in 1884 and continues to serve hikers today. The track starts behind the old ‘Pam’s Store’, now a French style creperie called La Galette, in historic Tilba Tilba. It’s a 4-5 hour return walk which will lead through deep green rainforest and past magnificent granite tors, historical features that are sacred to the Yuin women of the south coast of NSW.

Bingi Dreaming Track

This coastal walk within the Eurobodalla National Park is of immense cultural significance to the traditional landowners. Indigenous tours explain its songlines as invisible threads with messages about food, water, laws and seasons. It also shares the relationship between prominent points like Gulaga Mountain and Montague Island (Baranguba), being important women’s and men’s places.

It is one of the best walks for experiencing natural coastal environments, leading hikers along sweeping beaches, over headlands, rocky outcrops and tidal estuaries.

Burrewarra Point Banksia Walk

An easy walk on a sandy track will take you through the forest, past an old WW2 communications bunker and onto a lookout platform. Continue further around the point to see the headland beacon and southerly for a series of spectacular clifftop views which are perfect for landbased whale watching during the spring migration.

Narooma Golf Club

With its enviable position on the cliffs, and view across the Pacific Ocean to nearby Montague Island, it’s unsurprising that Narooma Golf Club’s 18 holes scores highly as some of the best golf courses Australia has to offer. The course is regularly voted in the top 100 Australian golf courses.

The legendary Hogan’s Hole has become golfing folklore. A game played here, hitting over the ocean onto a cliff top green is truly something to behold…just bring a spare set of golf balls.

The back 9 winds through beautiful forest with many testing holes, water features and sand traps. It’s a course that offers the best of two worlds.

Wasp Head South Durras

The golden colours of the sculpted sandstone cliffs, which form the exposed southern edge of the 280 million-year old Sydney Basin, are a unique treat at Wasp Head.

But the spectacle doesn’t end with these beautiful cliffs. Out on the rock ledge of the head, you will find the most fascinating rock formations including a display of ironstone box work—iron-rich sediment that has formed into a box-like pattern is spectacular and one of the highlights of Murramarang National Park.
