LOCAL AREA INFORMATION
The Central Coast has a very special natural resource with over 210,000 ha of natural vegetation set aside for conservation as National Parks and other reserves.
The Parks of the Central Coast cover areas from the coast, including a marine extension to Bouddi National Park, through coastal lakes and lagoons, areas along the banks of the Hawkesbury River and its tributaries and up into the rugged sandstone country along the foot of the Great Dividing Range.
This mixture also means that there is a wide variety of vegetation and wildlife for people to observe. A simple afternoon walk can take you through coastal shrubs and dunes, rainforest gullies and Eucalypt forests in only a few hours.
The Parks provide the opportunity for people to partake in many different types of activities. You can go bushwalking, camping, picnicking, swimming, fishing, surfing and whale watching (at the right time of year). Bushwalkers can visit historical sites, both Aboriginal and European, observe the vast array of spectacular wildflowers and even catch a glimpse of some of the unique wildlife or just take in the breathtaking views from the lookouts.
The above activities can all be undertaken at your own time and pace or if you wish to add to your experience in our wonderful natural bush, you can join one of the NPW Discovery Tours. On these walks, which sometimes also include a spotlight walk at dusk, you not only get to enjoy our native bush, but also learn more about the wildlife, bush and history of the area from the friendly Discovery Rangers. You might even see some of the more shy, hard to find animals and birds. The Discovery Program also caters for the more adventurous nature enthusiast, with four-wheel drive tours, abseiling courses, canoe trips, camping, camp fires and mountain bike rides.
As the seasons change, so do the parks. Different plants and trees are flowering, while different animals and birds are in the area. The parks are a great place to visit all year round, forever changing.
For further information please contact the National Parks and Wildlife Service.
Please leave the premises the way you found it.
Hope you enjoy your stay!
We stayed with Derek for 35 days.
It was very enjoyable time: wild birds (parrots), chicken, all these views around and relaxing atmosphere. It was really cool!
Derek was very kind and has helped us a lot. He gave us many useful advices which have worked out.
Also, he prepared for our visit. As we have a child, he bough a cot and a high chair for our baby. We appreciate it.
I truly recommend staying with Derek!! He is an awesome man!
Derek went out of his way to greet my husband and I at the train station so we did not have to take a taxi or drag our luggage the 10 minute walk to the house. The accommodations were spotless, spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed cooking, washing some clothes and watching a movie the first night and then spent the morning admiring the wildlife. It felt like a home away from home and was like hitting a "reset" button after traveling so many days before we arrived.
The only difficulty we encountered was the distance between Point Clare & the city. The train ride was just over and hour and not frequent. Unfortunately we had to cut our stay short and move closer to the city so we could catch an earlier flight.
This was our first experience with airbnb. Derek couldn't have made us feel any more welcome. The room was made available whenever we were to arrive. Derek greeted us and have a thorough rundown or everything we needed to know.
The unit was everything as described. Comfortable and will appointed. Netflix was a bonus for the kids. The beds were very comfortable and the living room easy to relax in.
The neighbourhood was very quiet and close to everything we wanted to do.
Highly recommended unit and host.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay - Derek and his partner were both very welcoming, very helpful, obliging and tolerant of 2 noisy teenage girls. Accom was as described, & very handy to everything.
A great experience and very relaxing! Derek was an excellent host and my wife and I would definitely go there again!
Derek greeted us after dark, after a long day of travel. showed us where everything was, offered help with out luggage and presented us with 2 organic eggs for our breakfast the next day. Fantastic.
Everything you could possibly need to be self sufficient in a unit, comfy bed and large bathroom. Loved it all.
The location is secluded, quiet with beautiful surroundings.
Point Clare is close to the beach, water ways and every kind of shopping. A beautiful place and easy access to everything.
Great Value and will be back without hesitation if ever needing the location again. Thank you ..
