Narooma is situated on the coast of New South Wales, Australia.
I visited Narooma at the start of September, which is spring weather.
Three places to visit in Narooma are the wharf, Australia Rock, and the Glasshouse Rocks to inspire creativity.
1 The Wharf
Sit by the wharf along Wagonga Inlet. Watch the boats come and go. Feel the spring warmth and breathe in the fresh air.
As the water flows over the rock wall, be mesmerized by its rhythm.
And, the seagulls fly around and squawk.
An ideal spot to eat lunch on a sunny day in spring.
2 Australia Rock
Drive around up to the cliff. Down the one-way road, where you turn right and drive along the water's edge towards the end of the road. There is a small carpark that looks out over the Pacific Ocean. On the cliffside, you will find Australia Rock.
The Illawarra Mercury outlines the history of Australia Rock. Its past has an interesting story. Previously, it was the 'Hole in the Rock'.
Back up to the top of the cliff at the lookout, is the view over the rocky coast.

3 Glasshouse Rocks near the cemetery
The land nearby the Glasshouse Rocks is private property.
Therefore, the closest view is from the cemetery which lies at the end of Cemetery Rd.
To get to the beach includes a steep descent down the cliff.
The beach is unpatrolled and has rips and rocks which makes swimming not possible.
As a photographer with mobility issues, the best view is to stand at the top of the cliff inside the fence at Narooma cemetery.
