    We live in the heart of Federal village, which means you can walk to the famous Doma Japanese cafe and the Federal Shop, there is a limited bus service from here to Byron and Bangalow. We live close to beautiful waterholes, waterfalls, rainforests and interesting hinterland villages, all waiting to be explored. Bryon Bay is 20 minutes away with amazing beaches on offer, constant live music and arts culture.
