About 9km offshore from the South Coast town of Narooma is one of the most adorable places on Earth. There is a sanctuary known only to the most knowledgeable of animal lovers. That place is LINK http://www.visitnsw.com/destinations/south-coast/batemans-bay-and-eurobodalla/montague-island Montague Island] and it is one of Australia's national treasures.
Montague Island is a sanctuary for wildlife. It's home to NSW's largest colony of fur seals and one of the largest little penguin breeding sites in Australia. There aren't many places in the world that let you go diving with seals but we happen to have one in Australia.

Montague Island is also an awesome whale watching vantage point. Migrating whales favour the waters near the island due to the abundance of krill. Whales head north along the NSW coast throughout June and in the first week of July, and return southwards from around September to November. Plan your trip accordingly if you want to witness these majestic beasts meander up north.
