The house is fully self-contained and has been fitted out with you and the kids in mind.

Location & Local Attractions
The property is located on Collingwood Beach, and backs right on to the beach. It's approx 1.4 km to the local Vincentia shops, which includes a supermarket, bottle shops, post office, bakery, chemist, doctor & dentist, banks,restaurants,etc. It is about the same distance to trendy Huskisson, which has a larger shopping strip.
If you walk out the back gate onto the bike / walkway and turn right you can walk 10 minutes along the water to the shops in Vincentia. If you turn left it will take you to Moona Moona creek (750mtrs) which is great for the younger kids. You can spend many afternoons taking the kids for rides along this path and having a swim at Moona Moona. Another 10 minutes past Moona Moona creek is lovely Huskisson with all its attractions.
Fishing off the beach at your back door will bring in whiting and flathead mainly, and the bait is under your feet with the beach having plenty of pippis. Every Wednesday you can get the freshest mussels from the wharf at Huskisson as they bring their harvest in from the mussel farms in the bay. You can also pick them up at the Ampol at Husky all week. Add crushed tomatoes, chilli and wine, then steam them open. It doesn't get any better.
In the area is dolphin and whale watching (from the back fence or on a tour), diving, bushwalking, Local indoor pool with slide, markets, clubs, 2 golf courses etc etc.
The area has so many activities that they are too varied to mention, but a quick visit to the tourism centre as you come through Husky and you will be up to date. But by far the best attraction down here is the bay and its beautiful beaches. Renowned for having the whitest sand in the world you won't find a prettier place in a hurry. Just go back and look at the photos of the beach taken from the back fence and you will have to agree.
