Kayaking Mystery Bay to Narooma
An exciting sea paddle for experienced ocean kayakers, with an easy launch and surf beach landing. The trip is exposed to prevailing onshore breezes.
Launch from Mystery Bay at the end of Mystery Bay Road, and head north past a series of small headlands and beaches to the mouth of Corunna Lake, then past Loaders and Fullers Beaches which face south east. These are both long beaches with large surf breaks. Head around rocky outcrops at Bogola Head (a fun place to play in gentle seas but worth avoiding in larger seas), then up to Burunga Point and Handkerchief Beach.
As you round Glasshouse Rocks you see Narooma Beach and the main Narooma headland. Once around the headland stay a reasonable distance offshore as you pass the bar of Wagonga Inlet. The landing is north of the breakwater at Bar Beach, immediately north of Narooma bar. The bar is hazardous and should only be attempted with previous knowledge and low seas with an incoming tide.
Primitive camping ground, toilets and Barbecue/picnic area are at Mystery Bay. Barbecue/picnic area, toilets and playground are nearby at Apex Park, North Narooma.
