The Australia Rock is OK but to get a good photo you need the light to be correct. Bar Rock Lookout gives a lovely view

Nice lookout up top and nice photo opportunity down the bottom at Australia Rock. It can be hard to get a pic when there are lots of people around but if you're patient you will get your chance.

The walk out to Australia Rock from town is along the estuary. The rock formation and cliffs to the south are the main attraction but there are also the seals on the rocks next to the inlet.

This is a must do when in Narooma. The seals are sun baking or swimming really close to the shore and you might be lucky enough to see a baby.

The lookout is like many other lookout but the hole in the rock like Australia is quite unique. Free car parking but if you have a camera or van leave it at the lookout and walk down to Australia rock. Dogs on leads.

Free parking available at the Bar Rock lookout. 5-10 minutes walk down some steps to the rock. It's amazing that the erosion just replicated the shape of Australia. Went there on a weekday. Not many tourists. Had a chance to see quite a few seals...More
