Currawong Cottage is nestled in the dunes, adjacent to the coastal reserve.
It has its own track, winding through the scrub to the beach. You can hear the sounds of the ocean from every room.
The cabin comprises a large living area (with 2 single fold-down sofa beds), modern, well equipped kitchen, two bedrooms (one with a double bed and trundle, the other with a queen-sized bed), ensuite and ante-room (with day bed). Folding stetchers are available on request for extra sleeping space.
The main bathroom has an old fashioned bathtub, with shower.
There are extensive verandahs and decks with a gas barbeque and outdoor dining areas. You can catch the morning sun or settle down with a book and an apple in the afternoon (after wearing the kids out on the beach.)
A lovely rustic feel, with all the comforts of home.
Vivonne Bay has everything for the beach-lover. Situated on the mid-south coast, it offers both seclusion and proximity to the many attractions of the central and western end of the island. These include Flinder's Chase Conservation Park (including a terrific visitor's centre with great coffee, food & souvenir shop) Remarkable Rocks, Admiral's Arch, Kelly Hill Caves, Seal Bay, Raptor Domain (birds of prey & reptile displays not to be missed!), Rustic Blue Cafe & Gallery (a stunning collection of unique & beautiful items in the gallery/shop & a perfect place to relax & enjoy delicious food & drinks, in gorgeous, peaceful surroundings) The Little Sahara (giant sand dunes), Andermel Marron Farm (delicious menu & local wine-tasting) and Clifford's Honey Farm (all your Ligurian honey needs & home-made honey ice-cream to die for!). Vivonne Bay, which has been voted Australia's best beach in a survey conducted by Sydney University, offers safe swimming, snorkelling, surfing, and fishing. Nestled between Vivonne Bay and Seal Bay Conservation Parks, Currawong Cottage is a bushwalker's or birdwatcher's paradise. The lovely sandy-bottomed Harriet River is a safe spot for a cool-off, a paddle and a safe splash-about for children. Canoes can be hired locally if you wish to explore further upstream.
Seals and dolphins are regular visitors to the bay, penguins can be seen near the jetty and in winter, you may be lucky enough to see a whale. Wallabies, possums, echidnas and heath goannas may be seen in the coastal reserve and around the beach houses. The beautiful coastal scrubland provides an everchanging display of wild flowers and a haven for birds. Vivonne Bay is an excellent base from which to explore the island, or just chill out, stay put and let the beautiful surroundings work their magic on you.
