Gull Cottage is situated in a quiet cul de sac on exclusive Camden Head, 10 mins to the nearby shops, restaurants and cinema in Laurieton and just 30 mins from Port Macquarie.
Gull Cottage is a casual stroll from a surf beach, the beautiful protected 'Pilot Beach' just inside a breakwall, the Camden Haven River, The 'Googleys' lake and Kattang National Park.
Gull Cottage has been recently renovated complete with a brand new kitchen, providing comfortable accommodation and an expansive deck with commanding views over the Lake and North Brother Mountain. Perfect for the al fresco bar-b-q.
A feature of Camden Head is the resident wildlife with koalas, wallabies, possums, native birdlife and dolphins all part of the day-to-day life. Walking trails in the Kattang national park give access to some of the most spectacular unspoilt coastal landscape and vegitation on the Mid North Coast.
Gull Cottage is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday for families, groups or couples wanting all the attractions of the Mid North Coast. Surf, swim, fish, bushwalking, catch a movie or pick up a bargain at the Riverside Markets, or just relax on the deck amongst the birdlife and magnificent views.

Camden Head

Just to the east of Dunbogan and Laurieton, Camden Head is an exclusive residential area with glorious views north to Port Macquarie and west to North Brother Mountain. The area features walking trails through Kattang nature reserve, and excellent views from Point Perpendicular along South Beach to Diamond Head in the Crowdy Bay National Park. A trail down to the sea allows you to discover deep water rock pools with a variety of sea life, excellent rock fishing, surfing and sun-baking.

For swimming, Pilot Beach is nestled next to the river breakwall with safe 'bay' swimming for the littlies. Wash House Beach is separated by the dummy breakwall and has good open beach surfing, rock fishing and exploring.

Camden Head Pilot Station is a rare surviving intact group of buildings at the mouth of the Camden Haven River. The site was used as a Pilot Station from 1890 -1975 with the original Pilot house built in 1907. The current building dates from 1950. It is currently the subject of a conservation redevelopment, funded in part by Hastings Council, the NSW Ministry of the Arts and the Department of Land and Water Conservation, which will make the facilities available for nature writing, environmental education and community activities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Cottage We thoroughly enjoyed out stay. Plenty of room for 2 families, with separate rumpus downstairs. All facilities were up-to-date and easy to function. Clean and tidy. 6 mins to Laurieton Tavern and Coles, 6 mins to Pilot Beach, 30 mins to Port Macquarie. We would book again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful home away from home We came to Dunbogan to celebrate a birthday and to experience 'A Taste of Haven'. We spent three most enjoyable days at Gull Cottage. The Cottage is a very clean, well-equipped three-bedroom cottage on the headland. We enjoyed breakfast on the deck with views overlooking Googleys Lake and the oyster leases. Kookaburras looked on while we ate breakfast. After fossicking in the rock pools, walks along the beach and in the bush, we found Gull Cottage a very comfortable and welcoming home to which to return. I also found the owner, Steve, very helpful in answering questions I posed before we left. Thanks Steve!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had the best time while we where there. The weather was perfect, the house was excellent, and everything we needed was there. It was just like home but more stylishly decorated. Gus the possum came to say hello, as did the Koala from across the road. The people in the area are so helpful and friendly. We will definitely be going back.
