This 1870s "Old Post Office" is situated in the little coastal village of Catherine Hill Bay on the Wallarah Peninsula. A quaint old mining village within the City of Lake Macquarie, Catherine Hill Bay is 119 km north of Sydney via the Newcastle Freeway and the Pacific Highway. 'The Bay' nestles in a peaceful valley surrounded by high hills and bushland and is the perfect place to escape from the stresses of city life. With a spectacular surf beach diagonally across the road, this particular property is steeped in history. The Old Post Office once serviced the small village and port for the Colliery and has been refurbished to the highest standards.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great spot The place which was charming and well looked after had everything you would need, miss it already. The verandah looking to the beach got good use and the 2 living areas gave enough room for everyone to do as they chose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We wanted to get away from the city with the kids for a few days and the Old Post Office was absolutely perfect. A lovely, comfortable house, only steps from the beach. We loved the views, the breeze and all the room for relaxing. Catherine Hill Bay is a beautiful beach, we will be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had kids, a dog, 30 somethings and the folks in tow and there was something for everyone at this house. It's spacious and romantic and incredibly relaxing. A wonderful, magical house to match an equally stunning location.
