The deck is wonderfully sheltered from sea winds and enjoys the maximum sun possible because of its situation in the bay. Outdoor furniture and two loungers provided. The safe sheltered swimming beach is just a short walk from the bach. Deck for you to sit on at the beach if the there is a very high tide. There is a 2 tonne mooring (boat ramp near by) and a 12 foot aluminium dinghy and two life jackets. Road access. Flat parking area at the top with driveway off this. Short walk (about 25 metres) to the bach from the end of the driveway.

    Cool little batch, we boated in & very handy with the mooring provided. love the location with great views & the deck down at the water is very cool to sit on & watch the kids swim. We will be back.
