Local Attractions

The area is ideal for water skiing, boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, windsurfing, sailing, swimming, surfing, snorkelling, diving, fishing, 4W driving, golfing, tennis, bush walking, dolphin & whale watching from Seal Rocks Lighthouse or just relaxing and enjoying the surroundings.

Local National Parks include Booti Booti, Wallingat and Myall Lakes. The Lake Retreat is situated near the top of the Myall Lakes system that runs south to Port Stephens, 1½ hour trip by boat.

With only a very short drive you can be sitting on one of these Mid North Coast beaches, Seal Rocks, Lighthouse Beach, Cellito, 7 Mile, Boomerang, Elizabeth, Bluey's or Treachery to name a few. Elizabeth Beach is perfect for families and is patrolled during the holidays and then for those naturalists amongst us there is the secluded Shelly's Beach, truly a hidden secret of the region.

Not far away are the magnificent beaches of the Forster Tuncurry region. On the way to Forster you pass the beautiful Green Cathedral, a popular wedding venue on the mid north coast under a canopy of palms with a superb view of Wallis Lake. Forster Tuncurry has great restaurants, cafes, many sporting facilities (including indoor aquatic centre) shops, movie theatres, ten pin bowling, whale and dolphin cruises and fun parks.

Major supermarkets, plus many variety shops, can be found in Stockland Shopping Centre just south of Forster about 30 minutes away, while all essential items can be obtained locally in the Pacific Palms area at Smiths Lake and Bluey' s.

The local village shops can cater for most of your needs with butcher, baker, general store, bottle shop, hairdresser, and take away food shops. Fresh seafood caught locally is available, as well as a chemist, deli, and a surf shop. There are also restaurants, cafes, and clubs for dining out. The local Bowling Club & Recreation Club provides a good option for families, they have courtesy buses available.

About a fifteen minute drive from the property towards Forster will see the Recreation Club at Pacific Palms where there is a boat ramp if you choose to go to Forster by water. There are public areas to moor your boat on the Forster side. The local Sunday Markets are held at the Recreation Club on a monthly basis however in the holiday period they are usually on every weekend.

Smiths Lake is famous for the enormous sandbar which divides the lake from the Pacific Ocean. From time to time the sandbar is manually opened to allow the lake to drain and refresh the fish stocks, rendering it tidal for a time. Fishing is a favourite pastime here for both commercial and recreational fisherman with an abundance available.

Why not call into The Frothy Coffee Cafe and Boatshed; they have drinks, meals and snacks along with bait, canoe, catamaran & tinny hirer. There is a boat ramp, sandy beach, BBQ / picnic area and kids playground nearby.

Approximately 1.5 kilometres away from the property across Seal Rocks Road there is Neranie, on the shores of the beautiful Myall Lakes system, a great spot for a picnic. The Lake is fresh water and safe for young children to swim.

Wallingat National Park a twenty minute drive will take you up to the Whoota Whoota Lookout, with far-reaching views over the coast, the long stretch of Seven Mile Beach to Forster and the islands of Wallis Lake. In Booti Booti National Park at Elizabeth Beach, beginning at the north end of Elizabeth Beach, is a lovely 7- kilometre bush walk, running over the cliffs to Seven Mile Beach before cutting back along the Wallis Lake front.

There is a beautiful picnic area at the Seal Rocks lighthouse, where migrating whales can be spotted travelling north in the winter. There is a nine-hole golf course in the area, as well as 18-hole courses in Forster and Tuncurry, local markets, four-wheel drive access to Sandbar & Lighthouse Beach (Permit required).

So as you can see there is plenty to do if you would like or you can just take it easy and relax.
