Wandha is an eco-certified Australian bush paradise providing the perfect base for people after a relaxing nature escape near lakes and beaches. The 25 acre property is a short drive to Seal Rocks and Myall Lakes, Smiths Lake, Blueys Beach, Boomerang Beach, Elizabeth Beach and the other beaches in the area.

The house has 3 bedrooms and sleeps a maximum of 6 people in a king, a queen and two king single beds. A portacot and high chair is available for babies. Doze off or read a book in the hammock, enjoy a BBQ meal, stroll around the grounds or play board games, the house is well equipped for a comfortable stay. In the kitchen you'll find all the appliances and equipment you need to cook a hearty meal. The kitchen has oven, stove, microwave, fridge, dishwasher and espresso machine and the pantry is stocked with staples like flour, oil, salt and pepper, tea and coffee and sugar.

Picturesque views of the property can be enjoyed from all rooms of the house. The habitat gardens offer a beautiful display of indigenous flora in amongst the backdrop of gum trees and private bushland. Guests are invited to pick fresh produce from the fruit trees and harvest garden when in season. A bluestone fire pit can be used all year round subject to RFS Fire Danger Ratings. There is plenty of kindling to collect from around the grounds, its all part of the experience.

With 3 national parks, 13 beaches and 3 lakes all within 10-20 minutes drive you can take your pick of outdoor activities. Whether on water kayaking, fishing, surfing or snorkelling, or on land mountain biking, bushwalking, picnics or grabbing a bite to eat there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Seal Rocks beaches and the Myall Lakes and Smith Lakes boat ramps are within 10 minutes, Blueys, Elizabeth & Boomerang Beach are within 15 minutes and the breathtaking Wallingat, Booti Booti and Myall Lakes National Parks are also just minutes away.

The kids will love the abundance of open space to explore. For those that need a bit more encouragement outdoors, we have swings, a fairy garden and play kitchen in an undercover area. If the kids are after some downtime, they'll love the hammock, board games, activity books and dare we say it, TV. There are plenty of after-dark activities too like spotlighting, frogging and star gazing.

We provide high chair, change mat and portacot for use, free of charge, upon request.

Just be aware that there are two unfenced dams on the property (about 80m from the house) and a staircase.

The property is dog friendly with plenty of space to run around without impacting the wildlife. We provide a kennel on the enclosed deck with food and water bowls. There are dog beaches and parks close by, although dogs aren't permitted in national parks. Please read the terms and conditions that you agree too upon booking.

Guests are comfortable all year round. Firewood is provided in the cooler months for the slow combustion log fire as well as column heaters, warm blankets and toasty doonas. To keep you cool in summer, we have ceiling fans in all rooms and reverse-cycle air conditioning in the loft bedroom upstairs. We have blinds and curtains on all windows and the house works well with passive cross-breezes.

Providing comfortable sustainable accommodation is at our core and our certification by Ecotourism Australia reinforces our commitment to this. We encourage guests to use our composting system for all organic food waste that is then used to feed our gardens. We're replacing all the exotic plants on the property with indigenous natives and we're enhancing habitats for local fauna species. We provide nesting boxes for possums and gliders and are a Koala Safe Space. Most of our furniture and decor is vintage or antique finds. All cleaning and bathroom products we provide are low-tox, plant based and Australian made. We use 100% renewable energy and rely on rainwater from our tanks.

We're a young family that loves spending time outdoors. As working parents with two young daughters we were craving a private sanctuary, where we could disconnect from everyday life and spend more time outdoors in nature as a family. We love to share Wandha with other like-minded families, holiday-makers and adventurers.

      A mix of seclusion and quiet coastal living is the perfect way to describe our long weekend experience at Warialda. Our hearts warmed as we entered the property via a dirt road, and got our first glimpse of the A-Frame cottage...
