About our home

Our home was completely rebuilt to retain the charm of a vintage beach home but to triple its size. The home features ocean views and is 200m to the beach. Next to a nature reserve, you can watch the kookaburras and kangaroos at dusk but also enjoy the best coffee on the coast at the local cafe 200 m away.

There is a lot to do locally as well as swimming and walking on the beach. There are a number of national parks very close, including the Dorrigo national park with its famous waterfalls. The Never Never river is beautiful and a lovely place for a refreshing dip in clear mountain water. There is a cultural trail leading you to galleries, artist studios and Aboriginal sites throughout the region and a very good Regional Gallery in Coffs Harbour. The area is famous for its birdlife and our house is about eight minutes to the mangrove walk in Urunga. There is a cinema in Nambucca Heads, about seven minutes down the road.

It is a golfer's paradise with a number of excellent golf courses nearby in Nambucca, Bellingen and Coffs Harbour as well as the internationally famous Bonville Golf Resort about 15 mins up the road.

Valla Beach is about 30 mins from Coffs Harbour where there is a regional airport with frequent direct flights to Sydney and also to Melbourne.

If you are flying in, we can usually leave our Volvo station wagon at the airport for your use while you are here.
