About the location of your Smiths Lake Accommodation
In between the Wallis and Myall Lakes is the smaller but just as majestic Smiths Lake, offering warm calm waters separated from the ocean by an impressive sandbar formation. Great Lakes Council does open this entrance when the waters in the lake become too high or need replenishing.
The township of Smiths Lake is approximately 25km south of Forster. Some three quarters of the catchment is forested or waterway. The lake is a largely undisturbed estuary of high scenic value. The town of Smiths Lake is located on the northern shore of the estuary and the southern shores are included within the Myall Lakes.
Our home Amaroo is beautifully positioned at a higher elevation on the edge of Smiths Lake. The prime positioning of the home gives you the opportunity to soak in the beauty and the tranquility of the lake.
The home is a short walk to the Smiths lake local shops. The town shops consist of a newsagent which stock groceries and videos for hire, a bakery, a liquor shop and a butcher. There is also a homely cafe and a beauty/hairdressing salon in the local shopping area.
A five minute drive from the house takes you to the PacificPalms shopping area near Blueys and Boomerang beach. This complex is equipped with more shops and restaurants to satisfy any holiday makers needs. In effect, most essentials can be obtained from the Smiths Lake local shops and the shops in Pacific Palms near Blueys and Boomerang beach. The welcome letter we email you when the home is booked gives you comprehensive information on activities, restaurants as well as more details of our beautiful suburb so that you can make the most of your holiday.
