  • Description

    Description

    The guesthouse is situated very close to some of Australia's best surfing beaches. There are many beaches within a few minutes walk, as well as a fishing harbour and 2 lighthouses . There is a bike and walking track that runs for many kilometres along the beach front, for your outdoor entertainment. We are also very close to many bush walking tracks.
    The hostel is situated right in the middle of town where there is a great café and bar culture , as well as many night spots. We have a very bohemian, bali-inspired hostel. The hostel is in a lovely heritage house which is eco friendly. We are solar powered, recycle everything we possible can, and have a lovely back garden to chillout in.
    This is a wonderful town to come for a cultural exchange. Our stay allows travellers to experience life in a coastal friendly town first hand. You can learn about our local wildlife species, environment and culture. We in turn greatly enjoy learning from you about your culture, your home country and sharing our stories about our love of travel.
