Just over 3 hours easy driving from Sydney.

Down the path, get on a kayak and PADDLE to the sandbar, then BEACH.

Local surfers love mangrove fringed CELLITO BEACH. Use the car and LESS THAN A MINUTE from Smiths LAKE is the short dirt road used to access the Cellito or as the locals call it Sandbar Beach. Turn off and head past the golf course on the gravel road to the car park.

Only a SHORT distance to Blueys and Boomerang SURF BEACHES. Nearby Elizabeth beach which is patrolled during holidays. From there walk the path to Shelley beach.

That's 5 beaches within 8 mins. Not to mention the BEACHES to be found a little further a field at Seals Rocks & Forster/Tuncurry area.

The there are local independent restaurants and the clubs have restaurants, check out our folder for ideas. Walk or drive 1.5 km's to the shops. Smiths Lake has a butcher, baker, general store/newsagent with fresh local eggs, bottle shop, and a trendy cafe with super COFFEE and treats. Pacific Palms SEAFOOD is only a few minutes away, the perfect place to get your fresh local sea food. PIZZA at Blueys.

Hire watercraft at the Frothy Coffee Floating Cafe. Follow the signs past the local shops to the playground/ carpark/picnic area. Launch your boat and moor it at our bay. The local skateboard park just near the Bowling club is linked to a basketball court it is well kept, clean and big enough to have some fun.

Take a SCENIC 20 minute drive to Forster/Tuncurry. Explore MORE BEACHES, entertainment venues, shops and restaurants. Enjoy 10 Pin Bowling on a rainy day. The shops at the lake entrance are interesting. BROWSE clothes, surf shops, homeware, op shops, fishing, bakery, games, eats.

Local MARKETS roam around the area in different locations each Sunday. Look at Pacific Palms for where and when.

Pacific Palms, Wallis and Smiths Lake are are boat persons heaven. They are surrounded by National Parks with secluded pristine beaches and bush trails for bikes and walking.

Smiths Lake itself is separated from the ocean by a natural sand bar and great for BIRD watching, fishing, windsurfing, all water sports and safe swimming for the kids. Go to the Camping Ground at low tide and wade out along the mud flats. We love that walk at sunset.

Our Local Information box has loads of ideas. Massage. Yoga. Lots to do....

Getaway. Come, explore and ENJOY

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dream Holiday Everything we could have wanted from a secluded lakeside holiday home, our stay resembled a fusion of fairytale and quintessential family / friend summer beach time fun and alternatively peace and quiet. Gunna have to try this place in winter and test run the two lush fire places at either end of the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy family holiday The spaces worked well allowing as to be on the deck, out on the lawns and playing table tennis during the day and scattered across the 3 inside living areas in the evening. We left our Smiths Lake escape with fond memories of early morning fishing expeditions, swimming, surfing, combing the surrounding beaches for coastal finds, beautiful bush walks and nightly fires warming our 2 families as we gathered around the table for dinner and games. Include also the whales at every beach moving south and the surf beaches so close. Active, relaxed and comfortable fun. We adored our holiday at Bowerbird House and look forward to returning.
