the serenity cure

suffering from Post Election Stress Disorder? you need the Serenity Cure     When I say that Hobbs Point is about as close to Heaven as you can get, folks think that I am somewhat biased, you know “oh well he would say that, wouldn’t he, he runs a guest cottage!” But Heide and I live here, and when we searched for a place to retire to, 20 years ago, we were actually looking for, a little teeny weeny slice of heaven. But don’t take my word for it. Here are […]

Glass House Rocks Aerial

Glass House Rocks Aerial Following on from our post about Glass House Rocks a few days ago, I thought you might like to see what it looks like from the air. Not a person in sight, now thats my sort of beach. I must add, it is really handy to be married to a photographer if you want to have a blog. They say “a photograph is worth a thousand words” and that may be an exaggeration, but it sure does save a lot of typing. Aerial view of Glass House Rocks Beach […]

Glass House Rocks – Narooma

Glass House Rocks – Narooma Glass House Rocks are perhaps the most fascinating of Narooma’s many natural wonders. Beginning at the southern edge of Surf Beach, they continue to the northern end of Handkerchief Beach. There are three ways to reach them. The first, and the recommended access, is via Glass House Rocks Road, through the Industrial Area to the Cemetery; at the southern end of the cemetery is a path down the cliff to the beach (bit difficult to find but worth the effort to reach the most secluded stretch […]

Mill Bay Boardwalk

Mill Bay Boardwalk The Mill Bay Boardwalk really is a must see attraction for visitors to Narooma, as well as local fishermen, walkers, cyclists and families. It is a perfect spot for taking great photographs of Wagonga Inlet with either Narooma or Mt Dromedary as a backdrop, and for children fish spotting, especially when the fish is a huge ray. To find the boardwalk, head north on the Princes Highway, and after crossing the Narooma Bridge, turn first right into Centenary Drive, and first right again to park at Mill Bay. […]

Swimming Bermagui – The Blue Pool

The Blue Pool Bermagui There are a number of rock pools in Australia, but surely, none of them can be more beautiful than the Blue Pool in Bermagui. Perched at the foot of the cliffs, the ocean and rugged cliff views are simply stunning. There are actually two pools; a small one for toddlers and a much larger pool for lap swimmers. One of the main attractions of genuine rock pools is that the water is replenished twice daily at high tide by the ocean. Thus the pool offers another attraction; […]

Forsters Bay Wagonga Inlet Narooma

Forsters Bay Wagonga Inlet High on the list of places to visit in Narooma is Forsters Bay, home to The Inlet & The Quarterdeck Restaurants. Both sit over the waters of Wagonga Inlet and are very popular spots for both visitors and residents alike seeking a morning coffee or something more substantial later in the day. It is equally popular for fishermen digging for sea worms for bait when the tides out, or for less energetic gourmands tasting Narooma’s famous oysters. Some of our guests at Hobbs Point Cottage prefer to paddle their […]
