  • Description


    Lach & Lynda.

    We are animal & nature lovers in our early 50s.

    We live on 10 peaceful, semi secluded acres, 3 hours North of Sydney on the Mid North Coast, in a sleepy hamlet called Coomba Bay on the beautiful Wallis Lake & Wallingat National Park. Stunning beaches & cafes are 20 mins drive. Forster is our main shopping centre, 40 km's away.

    We have a large yacht, which we like to share fun days with friends and family.

    Travellers can expect a busy yet relaxed outdoor lifestyle.

    We enjoy a mainly vegetarian diet which includes seafood.
