At OceanWhispers the activities available are only limited by your level of energy and imagination. Below are some ideas, but we suggest you come up with some of your own as well!
* Swimming ~ you can swim at the beaches, in the lake and at the lagoon and creek. You can even drive to Sussex Inlet indoor heated community pool.
* Bush walk. With Conjola National Park across the road there is no limit to the bush walking which can be done.
* Bike riding ~ with bush and beaches both available hop on your bike and off you go. Don't forget to try the paved pathway at the Swan Lake for a great ride.
* Dolphins & Whales ~ it is common to see dolphins out the front and also the occasional whale. However for an enjoyable day out on the water, and a bit more certainty, take a dolphin and whale watching tour with Dolphin Watch Cruises at Huskisson, which is less than 30 minutes away.
* Fishing ~ some great fishing is available for the amateur to the professional. You can beach fish, fish off the reef point or in the lake or lagoon. A popular location for first timers is the vicinity of the lake bridge.
