2022 Festival Dates Announced!

The 2022 Narooma Boats Afloat Festival will be held on 11-13 November 2022. One for your diary and one not to be missed.

About Us:

Narooma BoatsAfloat Inc is a group of people with an interest in enjoying and celebrating Traditional Boats in all their varied forms – from clinkers and putt-putts to launches and cruisers and yachts.

In spring every year since 2006 a weekend festival is held on and around the pristine waters and colourful boatsheds of Wagonga Inlet in Narooma on the NSW south coast.

ENTRIES ARE ALWAYS FREE and the Festival is open to any traditional style boat – Putt Putts, Steam, Sail, Rowing and Kayaks.

Each year we provide a relaxed program of boating activities on the crystal clear waters of Wagonga Inlet in scenic Narooma on the NSW South Coast.

This website provides a record of some of the past festivals as well as information for the public and for boaties on any upcoming festival.
