Lived in this awful place for 5 years and HATED every minute of it!!!! People are rude - if you live near the pub you will be annoyed by the drunkards!!!! Drugs are huge in this town as are idiots!!!!

This raised house pictured in Fredo is fine in a drought but when it rains the water floods the lower part of the land and under the house as it is built on a floodway drain!!!!! I certainly wouldnt buy there if I had little kids - why do you think the house has to be so high!!!?

The traffic on the highway is incredibly noisy and even with double glazing on the windows on my house when I lived there I had almost 5 years of sleepless nights.

The dogs in the area bark continuously and there is no way you can speak to the neighbours about it without them making your life HELL!!!!! The majority of the people that live in the lower half of fredo are morons - DONT BUY HERE!!!!!

[ I now live in Kempsey and have lovely neighbours, much more sleep and a much less stressful life!!! :-) ]

"Great little spot on the Highway"

Best pies in Australia, great little community just minutes from Kempsey, and oh so close to fabulous beaches and headlands. A town that still is small and still a typical country village.
One hour to Coffs, and 30 minutes to Port Mcquarrie for all your retail therapy needs.

"World’s Best Pies"

Located on the busy Pacific Highway, 10 minutes north of Kempsey, Fredricton, has a unassuming, yet famous Pie Shop that sells a huge variety of pies, from crocodile to emu and oyster. Many travellers make this a pit stop on their journey. Freddo also has a pub, petrol station, and was once the home of the Norco dairy co-op – an important enterprise that reflected the areas dairy farming past. The local people also travel to this town for sadder purposes, as it is the home of the Cemetery that services the community.
