Discover the pristine coastline from Narooma to Dalmeny. The Narooma to Dalmeny Coastal Trail is one of the most beautiful dedicated walking/ cycle tracks in Australia.
Your first stop is at the Bar Rock Lookout where you will enjoy 360 panoramic views out to Baranguba (Montague Island) and up the coast to Potato Point. You will then make your way to Australia Rock a favourite spot for Instagram photos. Just beside Australia Rock, along the breakwall, is a seal colony nestled in amongst the rocks.
From here make your way to the Narooma Bridge and on to the Mill Bay Boardwalk. Look out for the giant sting rays that frequent the channel. Spot the amazing birdlife and fish in the beautiful clear waters. From here discover the wetlands. Birds such as black swans, herons, ducks and many other native birds are viewed easily from the cycle trail. This is a bird watchers paradise. The cycle track then follows numerous breath taking beaches all the way to Dalmeny. There are view points along the track with interpretive signage that tell you all about the rich Aboriginal history of the coast. At certain times of the year you may spot whales breaching (May to November) or dolphins frolicking in the waves. When you reach Dalmeny stop for a picnic full of delicious local produce such as Bodalla Cheese. On the return journey you will stop at Foster Bay on the Wagonga Inlet with views over to Gulaga Mountain in the distance.
This tour is for lovers of nature and wildlife. We challenge you to find a better cycle trail anywhere in the world!
There is no better way to explore the area around Narooma and to re-connect with nature than by e-bike (electric bike). Immerse yourself in nature with minimal impact by simply cycling through it. Our e-bikes can either be ridden like a normal bike with no assist or adjust the assist to give maximum help. You still have to pedal but the assist helps you to get up hills easily allowing you to enjoy the scenery and ride further. We also have padded gel seats for extra comfort. The e-bikes are so much fun.
One of the most popular trails to ride is the spectacular Narooma to Dalmeny Coastal Trail where you may spot seals, whales and other incredible marine life. There are many more trails around the hinterland of Narooma to suit different fitness levels and time available. Did you know there are trails to Central Tilba, Mystery Bay and around the Wagonga Inlet? The e-bikes make these trails so much easier and are an eco friendly way to see the beautiful scenery.
