Whale at Montague Island

With its vast tracts of hinterland, national parks and state forests, the Eurobodalla region offers many opportunities to see and encounter native animals in the wild. The region is also home to the world-class Mogo Zoo and Birdland Animal Park, where you can cuddle a baby wombat.

With the largest known community of Australian fur seals in NSW, Montague Island is one of the star natural attractions of the Eurobodalla region. Just off the coast of the popular holiday town of Narooma, it’s a spectacular place where you can take an eco tour, meet little penguins, and even swim and dive with the friendly fur seals.

The rugged forested terrain of the Deua National Park is a haven for birds, wallabies, kangaroos, possums and bandicoots and the rare tiger quoll is also found in the park. Owls are common at night as they hunt for small marsupials. Kangaroos abound at South Durras and throughout Murramarang National Park, including the legendary beach kangaroos at Pebbly Beach.

In Monga National Park near Braidwood, lyrebirds are often seen near the ancient plumwood trees of Penance Grove. Many of the old growth forests in the region are home to sooty and masked owls. In autumn, the Banksia Walk at Burrewarra Point attracts a variety of nectar-eating birds and during whale watching season, from September to November, you can spot these magnificent creatures from the headland. And you can go for a surf at Eurobodalla National Park, home to troupes of a kangaroos and a range of native birds.
