Visit to Montague Island

Taking advantage of the warm shoulder months and the greatly reduced number of tourists in the region at this time of year, Catherine and I headed down the coast to Bermagui for a weekend away. We decided to spend Saturday afternoon on a boat cruise with Narooma Charters out to Montague Island. The cruise cost $90 each and is the only way of visiting the island as it is one big nature reserve and uninvited visitors are banned. The island is home to some of the rarest birds on the planet (the endangered Storm Petrel) and also a large colony of Australian and New Zealand (Short Nosed) seals. The history of the island, from both the indigenous and the European perspective is extremely interesting and I can highly recommend a visit to this amazing location.

For the last 16 years I’ve been photographing, blogging (and more recently vlogging) about everything I find, see and enjoy here in South Coast, New South Wales. This is my blogging site focused on my hobby (and part-time job) of photography. Please enjoy my little writing and my photography and I’d love to hear your feedback.
