Wagonga Inlet


Description


Ride through beautiful forest, alongside coastal wetlands and along an amazing stretch of coastline. It also goes along side Wagonga Inlet. This forest and ocean cycle loop west of Narooma is a true pleasure.

The ride starts at the car park on Riverside Drive, Narooma, near the restaurants. It follows The Scenic Drive along the southern side of Wagonga Inlet right up to the top of the inlet where there is a good rest stop at the wharf. From there, it heads north into the forest along overgrown sections of road before joining Mitchells Ridge Rd and back to the Princes Highway.

Two kilometres of riding on the shoulder of the highway is then required to get to the Dalmeny turnoff. Care is required when crossing the narrow Lawlers Creek Bridge on the highway. You join Cycle Route Nar1, the wonderful coastal shared pathway at the Dalmeny Sports Club and follow it all the way back to Narooma. Look out for the viewing platform and story board adjacent to the wetland that captures the history and flora and fauna of the area as you’re heading into Narooma. There are cafe and restaurant opportunities in Dalmeny and Kianga, as well as Narooma, at the end of the ride.

Note: The ride is undulating and is for fit riders, but is one of the best the coast has to offer.
