(According to Wikipedia)
Narooma is a town in the Australian state of New South Wales on the far south coast. The town is on the Princes Highway, which crosses the Wagonga Inlet to North Narooma. The heritage town of Central Tilba is nearby to the south.
The name Narooma is said to be derived from a word in the local Aboriginal language (one of the Yuin dialects) meaning "clear blue waters".
At the 2016 census, Narooma had an urban population of over 3,000 people.
Before European settlement of the area, the Yuin people inhabited the lands along the stretch of coast, with the Walbunga/Walbunja clan being the traditional owners of the Narooma area. The name Narooma is said to be derived from a word in the local Aboriginal language meaning "clear blue waters". The language of the Walbunja was probably a dialect of Dhurga.
A township was surveyed at the present location of Narooma in 1883 and given the name Noorooma, which it held until 1972. It was declared a port in 1884.
