About Narrawong

Narrawong is a small rural township on the northern shore of Portland Bay and sits alongside the mouth of the Surry River. The lands around what became Narrawong were traversed by the indigenous Guditjmara people of the region for thousands of years prior to the coming of Europeans in the early 1840s.

According to the 2011 Census, Narrawong had a total of 351 residents. Because of Narrawong’s proximity to Portland there has recently been increasing residential development and the area has evolved as a popular tourist destination. The coastal land has supported mixed grazing, orcharding and dairying as prime industries of the area.
