1. Whale watch on our four day Eurobodalla NP, Montague island and Narooma Photography Tour / Holiday

The following photography galleries display the day by day activities of Eurobodalla NP, Montague Island & Narooma which are part of our Narooma Photography Tour

Narooma and Montague Island on the Eurobodalla Coast are a delight to tourists and photographers. Just a few nautical miles off the coast from beautiful relaxing Narooma is Montague Island. Just imagine gently drifting through groups of Fur seals floating on their sides cooling themselves by raising their flippers in the air or whale watching.

The trip to Montague Island allows you to see so many Australian and New Zealand Fur seals plus Humpback whales and calves. So many that you won't be able to keep count in the right season. On the return trip back to Narooma you will probably just want to relax and take in the environment as you bob around on the ocean.

This tour includes another two very special activities. Make your own designer cheese at the ABC Cheese Factory under the guidance of an expert cheese maker. Also go on a tour of great significance with a trip from Mystery Bay and Mount Gulaga which is the spiritual home of the Yuin people.

    "Australian Photography Tours specializes in the Great Outdoors. They provide fixed weekend nature photography walks and also organize custom workshops in locations from the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area to the Burning Palms / Garie Beach area of the South Pacific coastline.
    Rather than intense nuts-and-bolts workshops, Australian Photography provides something that is akin to high-value photography situations and settings with an emphasis on Nature and Wildlife."
