Towards Gulaga Gulaga is the original aboriginal name for the mountain which dominates the coastal strip north and south of Narooma. Today it is known as Mt Dromedary, a name given to it by Captain James Cook on 21 April 1770, when he first saw the mountain from HMS Endeavour. Today, Gulaga at it’s highest point is 806 m above sea level; 60 million years ago when it was an active volcano, it’s height was estimated to be 3000m.

Birding Narooma The British call birdwatchers Twitchers, Australians say Birdwatchers while the Americans call it Birding. I’m not sure that serious bird watching folks would consider a Seagull going for a morning constitutional whilst a couple of Pelicans discuss whatever it is that Pelicans talk about, as being worth watching, but Heide certainly thought it was worth photographing, so who am I to disagree !
