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.

AMAROO on the Waterfront is rated 4.8462 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had a fantastic time! Excellent Property! We have stayed there for 3 nights with 5 people (friends - 1 couple, 2 female and 1 male) over Xmas and we truly had a great time there. The first two days were cloudy and a bit raining, but the place was very comfortable and very clean and we still sat down on the deck and enjoyed the view and chilled out. We also went for a walk (basically walking down from the property to the lake). It was enjoyable. We also played the table tennis which was so much fun. The pool table was not in a great condition so we did play but only once as we couldn't enjoy so much due to the condition of the pool table. For the last day, it was sunny so we went to the beaches (Boomerang & Elizabeth) these beaches were so beautiful and we had a great time there.  On the day we were leaving, we decided to go to the cafe around the corner for the breakfast and this cafe was really nice too :)  We spent a lot of time sitting down at the table on the deck and we enjoyed the breeze, looking at the sunset, etc. It was such a relaxing holiday we had. Thanks for the owner's timely response and a little surprise gift too. I will strongly recommend this place for the family or a group of friends :) It is clean and very comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We visite Amaroo in much need of some quiet time and tranquility. We got even more than we bargained for.This is a very quiet and peaceful spot. Sitting on the deck relaxing is quite mezmerizing. The house is even more spectacular than on the website if possible. The view is beautiful and uncrowded and the sound of birds is never far away. The experience is thoroughly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What a great position on the shores of Smiths Lake. We ate every meal on the deck overlooking the lake. (Watch out for the Kookas - they can pick up a whole steak in their beaks!) In the evenings we went fishing at the bottom of the yard and watched the sun set. The house was handy to the boatshed cafe - a 10 minute walk or a leisurely canoe paddle. Overall, an enjoyable holiday ion a lovely location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We really enjoyed our stay at Amaroo, the house was great, big enough for the kids to have their own space. We ate all of our meals on the deck overlooking the lake which was just beautiful. It's a short walk to Frothy Coffee Cafe, a well known local landmark where you can relax and enjoy a meal, swim and fish.
