I love flying my Mavic 2 Pro quadcopter at the best of times, but when we’re staying somewhere as photogenic as Narooma then I try and get the drone up into the sky as soon as possible. On this particular day, Catherine wanted to go stand-up paddle boarding so we headed to Wagonga Inlet in Narooma which is perfect for this particular sport. I flew the Mavic near the waterside buildings and out towards the centre and also captured some cool 180º and 360º panos.

 

Looking out towards the Narooma Inlet.

 

That’s the Wagonga Inlet Cruises boat in the middle of frame. Believe it or not, that’s a 100 year old electric ferry, built in 1905 and powered by 16 batteries. The perfect boat for these ecologically sensitive times we live in and how ironic that it dates from around the turn of the 20th century.

 

This is Narooma Marina (and a collection of other boat related businesses) from where you can hire boats, fishing gear and moorings if you have a boat.

 

The parkland reserve here is called Quota Park and is a great place to sit and watch the traffic on the inlet.

 

Looking towards Fosters Bay and Shell Point.

 

The Quarterdeck (the red building) is our favourite restaurant in this area although they’ve recently changed their opening times (not open for lunch any more) and we were unable to visit on this trip. They have a Tiki bar, Hawaiian beer on tap and great food.

 

Most of the slipways and piers here are private property.

 

The water’s very shallow right up to the boat houses where it gets quite a bit deeper.

 

You can actually walk out to those oyster fetches in the middle, it’s so shallow.
