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 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Location We had a great Easter weekend at the Old Post office. Location is fantastic and house very large and comfy. We could not get the TV working, only needed free to air channels for the sport but apart from this it was a great weekend and the house has every thing one would need for a holiday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So close to beach and so spacious it’s so close to the beach!! You can't get any closer to the guarded beach!! We just walked up and down between the house and the beach a few times a day and felt relaxing. Great for family. The house is so spacious and naturally lit that everyone enjoyed. We love the setting, the lovely timber veranda, interior style, books & furniture, the old shed sitting on the beautiful green backyard is great for photos.
