Places to eat

We are located in a remote location so our fine dining options are limited! The kitchens in our accommodation are well equipped so take advantage of this and cook up a storm while you’re here. Nowra Fresh on the way down from Sydney offers great fresh seafood, meat and veggies. SPAR supermarket in Sussex Inlet is open until 7pm most nights so also very handy. Cuddy General Store is a short walk away from us and has a lovely view of Swan Lake.

day trips

If the weather turns or you are looking for some retail therapy and a wider range of dining options, take a drive to either Huskisson (30 mins north of us) or Milton (30 mins south of us). Huskisson offers a range of dolphin watch cruises and scuba diving options as well as great fish and chips.

Milton is great for having a stroll through the shops and eating out. If you have the kids in tow and they are bored, head further south to Mollymook where they can play for hours at the newly built inclusive playground Libby’s Place. For wet days a bit further south in Ulladulla you will find Funland.
