Nara Inlet, Hook Island

Nara Inlet is a very protected anchorage on Hook Island that is popular with all boaties.

A unique factor about Nara Inlet is the cave at the furthest end, where you will find Ngaro Aboriginal cultural site. The bush track up to the cave is well-marked, gentle and accessible by people of all fitness levels. Interpretive signage along the way explains the significance of the site and the cave paintings.


The calmness of this anchorage is perfectly suited to;

  • swimming,
  • kayaking/paddle boarding,
  • fishing
