The serene quintessentially Australian bushland setting offers rest and relaxation, however it can also become the centre of a full expedition experience. Excursions can be as simple as a professionally guided bushwalk or as challenging as a fishing excursion aboard the 38 foot Pretty Beach Launch CABO sports cruiser. Cruise to one of the many secluded bays or beaches with a picnic hamper.
Lobster Beach, Box Head and the surf break at Tallow Beach are all within easy walking distance, while Killcare surf beach, Maitland Bay and the seaside villages of Killcare, Wagstaffe and Hardys Bay are close by.
