If you've ever wanted to snorkelling with fur seals as little penguins cheered you on then Montague Island is the place to visit. It is home to over a thousand fur seals in the winter time. There are also a lot of native bird species to the island that can't be seen anywhere else.
The South Coast of NSW is home to many great whale watching vantage points. Stanwell Tops near Wollongong, Gerroa and Seven Mile Beach National Park. Jervis Bay is also a popular spot as whale numbers have risen in the area. It's just a nice way to past the time as you watch these majestic animals meander up north to warmer waters.
