Montague Island Tours provides visitors with the chance to explore this unique NSW south coast destination - Montague Island Nature Reserve - through regular half day (3-4 hr) offshore adventures or the opportunity to stay overnight in the island's restored Head Keeper's Quarters.

Whichever experience you choose, it will include:
• thousands of years of Aboriginal heritage
• over 125 years of lighthouse history
• the surrounding marine environment including the East Australian Current
• NSW's largest Little Penguin colony
• NSW's largest fur seal colony, with up to 1000 on the rocks in spring
• seasonably variable wildlife - always something different
• NPWS management and conservation projects on the island
• spectacular scenery
• spectacular views back to the mainland and out to sea

Access to Montague Island Nature Reserve is provided by a local charter operator from Narooma's Town Wharf.
The 9km trip takes around 30-40 minutes and is an adventure and educational experience in its own right with the great variety of marine life to be seen in the area.... perhaps seabirds such as the mighty Albatross or migrating Humpback Whales in season.
Year-round, the Island's Fur Seals are viewed up-close during your boat trip.

The Island is a significant feature of the Batemans Marine Park and an iconic destination for travellers to the NSW south coast and the beautiful Eurobodalla Shire - "Land of many waters".

Due to the island's Nature Reserve status, a Montague Island Tour is definitely the ONLY way to be able to venture ashore to experience this unique destination...

Montague Tours are winners of an Australian Tourism Award, 5 NSW State Tourism Awards, and an international IUCN/British Airways "Tourism for Tomorrow" Award. In 2008 the Tours won membership of the NSW Tourism HALL OF FAME, for winning three consecutive awards in the Ecotourism category.

A Guide To Choosing Car Tyres

Choosing the best tyres

There are several types of car tyres, and you need to be very cautious to find the right ones. Choosing the best one is not an easy job. You may find it vast and off-putting, but you should try as you can and find the right variety. You need to research thoroughly and know the design that will fit your car impeccably and give it a new and interesting look.

Before you start searching ensure that you know the type of car tyres that you have or you have been using on your car. At this point, you need to find out further about their size and get any information that will guide you to the top in the market.

Factors to be considered

As you find and pick out the best, you need to be very thoughtful and find car tyres that will match your driving habits and the make of your car. For this, you can take a look at the vehicle’s manual. If you are used to driving at a higher speed, you need to set your sights on such tyres that can resist tear and wear. Those who drive on country roads need to purchase car tyres that have a low-speed ranking so that they can be capable of resisting any wear and tear and finish up saving more on tyre repairs. And consequently, the design that you will select should save you more money and time.

Excitingly, as you find the best car tyres, you also need to evaluate the tread life of the existing tyres. This is a great step as you will be able to decide how long you can drive on these new tyres before you replace or repair them. You also need to check how the tyres will perform indifferent weather conditions. You need to pick tyres that can bear up any weather condition and carry out without any difficulties.

To conclude, the ride quality should be the best, and you should get the best tyre sizes that will fit effortlessly in your car rims and proffer the finest performance on the roads. So when seeking new tyres, it is best to go to professionals. It also pays to have a little knowledge of the basics, so you can feel confident you are getting the right tyres for your car.
