Fishing: whether the kids are fishing off the wharf, or you go further afield in your own boat there are plenty of fish around for the taking

Boat launching: So close, so handy and so safe

Hunting: although the deer grazing the lawns of local properties are not up for grabs there are plenty of places to go to do some stalking

Doc walks: so many walks in a very short distance

Kayaking: Two sit on Kayaks available, some life jackets available, but best to bring your own for best fit

Boogie Boarding: Hours of fun along at Neils Beach

Pengiun watching: Care must be taken when driving, they can be everywhere, we even had one nesting in our garage

Lake Ellery: Absolutely beautiful walk or Jet boat up the river

Smoothwater beach: A 2 hour walk, just magic

Stafford Hut: DOC hut 5 hours walk

  • Had a great stay at this bach

    Had a great stay at this bach. The craypot inn was still operating so we indulged there. The weather was very good and one day was absolutely stunning. Comfortable bed. Look forward to staying again sometime and hopefully enjoy the new wood burner.

    Loved Jackson bay, the bach has everything and a bit more than was needed. Tried the cray pot (twice) - brilliant food. When the sun came out truly a magical spot. Sand fly repellent a must.
