The small coastal town of Smiths Lake provides the convenience of a baker, butcher, take-away, bottle shop / delicatessen and store and local clubs and restaurants are a minutes drive away. Walk the shoreline to the famous Frothy Coffee Boatshed for an atmospheric and delicious breakfast or lunch. Forster is a bigger center with large shopping facilities and is an essential 25 minute scenic drive through Bootti Booti National park if only for the treat of a walk across "The Bridge" joining Foster to Tuncurry.

The Smiths Lake location provides a wide range of diverse activities for both Winter and Summer including walking up the lighthouse at Seal Rocks (5 minute drive), mountain bike riding on the Wallingat National park trails, bush walking to the many lookouts, winetasting at Great Lakes Vineyard or just sunset gazing over Smith Lake while floating in the shallows.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great holiday house We had a lovely stay at Adrift. There was plenty of space, it was well equipped and it very peaceful with lots of big windows to capture the feeling of being among the trees! The kids loved being able to kayak and canoe across to the beach and we all had a great time playing pool at the end of the day. The bird life was spectacular. We can recommend this as a great holiday property, especially for teenage children. Thank you Steve and Leonie for a truly enjoyable stay :)
