    Our property is situated in the Manning Valley; you will experience both the Australian coastal and rural lifestyle. The property is located on an island that is private boat access only and just within the mouth of the river with the ocean and beach just a short boat ride away. Our property is approximately 40 acres in size however you can enjoy beautiful walks across the crown land and through gorgeous forest to gain access to the ocean entrance. The island offers amazing wildlife; wallabies, echidna, bandicoot and an abundance of birds to watch. Often you will see dolphins swim past and there are breeding sites close by for "little terns". You will learn a lot about the beauty and challenges of island life!
