WATERFRONT Retreat North Arm Cove

Located in: North Arm Cove

54 Cove is situated on over half an acre of waterfront land in the village of North Arm Cove on the untouched northern shore of Port Stephens. 54 Cove provides contemporary, fully equipped accommodation for up to 8 people.

54 Cove is the perfect retreat from a busy urban lifestyle. You will be amazed at the peace and quiet; the variety of bird and other wildlife on your doorstep. If you dream of relaxing on a private deck overlooking a pristine, untouched bay, watching the dolphins play and the wallabies hop by as the sun gives way to a million stars, then this is the place for you!

If you feel like a bit of activity, 54 Cove is ideally situated for exploring from land or sea. There are 2 kayaks (life jackets supplied) to paddle on the water. Boat launching facilities are also available in nearby Karuah and or Tea Gardens. Alternatively, bring your mountain bike and explore the area from the land. North Arm Cove is perfect for cycling, and if you are feeling really energetic, you could also cycle to the nearby tennis court for a hit.

In less than perfect weather, cuddle up in front of the log fire with a nice glass of red, watch a DVD or play board games. After a glass or two of wine it may be time to challenge your companions to a game of pool or table tennis on the lower deck!!

Whether you are the active type, somebody who values complete relaxation, or somewhere in between, 54 Cove is the perfect weekend or holiday destination!

The Cove is situated on the waterfront at North Arm Cove. North Arm Cove really is a hidden piece of paradise. It is a secluded and tranquil village on the northern shore of Port Stephens. It is hard to believe a place like this can exist so close to Sydney, but this area remains one of the few little known and minimally developed parts of NSW.

It is accessed via the M1/F3 freeway, 13km north of Karuah. It is around 2 hours drive from Sydney and 45 minutes from Newcastle. Despite its seclusion, the Cove is only a 5 minute drive, on a sealed road, from the Pacific Highway.

The nearest shop facilities is at either (1) Karuah IGA about 15 minutes (2) ColesBi-Low at Tea Gardens which is about 30 minutes from the property. Finally, the "Rock" Service Station on the Pacific Highway, just 10 minutes drive from the property - facilities are now limited post 2018 fire - petrol only. Note: there are no shop facilities in North Arm Cove.

North Arm Cove is one of the main gateways to the Myall Lakes National Park, a network of interconnected lakes and rivers that is one of the most popular boating destinations in the country. These lakes are superbly equipped for recreational boating and fishing.


North Arm Cove is a top spot for nature lovers. It abounds with hundreds of different species of birds and is home to a large population of wallabies who hop through the village most evenings and often stop by to check out whats on the Barbie!!
Dolphins are constantly frolicking in the waters of Port Stephens, and can often be seen from the deck at the Cove.
