For the more active, some of the local attractions include bush walking, surfing, mountain biking or a round of golf at an international standard golf course. Enjoy some of the local quality restaurants and cafes and the local tavern which has a varied array of entertainment to suit all tastes.

For the shopaholics, there are a diverse and varied assortment of boutique stores operating in traditional shops and lots of obscure and interesting locations.

  • We had such a lovely, peaceful time - everything we needed in...

    We had such a lovely, peaceful time - everything we needed in the bach plus an incredible view, surrounded by bush and birds, use of the hot tub and so close to local amenities. We felt really at home but away from it all. Easy to find as well.

    Absolutely amazing place to stay. Wonderful view, great accommodation and easy access to all areas. It's comfortable, well set up and it has that 'homey' feeling to it that will definitely convince me to stay again. Thanks so much for allowing my partner and I to stay here!
