Mallacoota remains a pristine area with lakes and beaches, surrounded by Croajingalong National Park, a World Biosphere Reserve. It is ideal for relaxed, nature-based holidays. Activities include beach and lake swimming, river and lake boat cruises, use of hire boats, ocean and lake fishing, boating, beach walks, bushwalking and bird watching. There are 2 restaurants and 3 cafes serving fresh healthy food and good coffee. The bakery has its own cafe. There are also two supermarkets, a pharmacy, a medical practice with 3 doctors and a community health centre. Mallacoota has been known over many years for its art and music activities, often attracting well-known performers (eg. Eric Bogle, Ronald Farren-Price and Slava Grigoryan). Admission prices are remarkably low. Altogether, Mallacoota is a place to unwind from big-city pressures and to experience nature at its most unspoiled.
The Polehouse is located in the hilly Karbeethong area of Mallacoota, with close access to the lake and National Park. The main town is situated about 5 minutes away along a scenic lakeshore road. The property faces North across the lake and a farm with grazing cattle, picking up sea breezes and plenty of sun. The ocean is situated to the NE. Sunrise can be enjoyed across the lake, and the Howe Range turns pink as sunset approaches. Being at the bottom of a court, there is no through traffic. Guests often stay on the property most of the day to relax and take in the stunning views. They are encouraged to use herbs from the garden in their cooking.
