"Great place to literally get away from it all - literally"

Gorgeous out of the way place, very quiet, family friendly and crime free. Stunning coastal vistas, though only one real decent surfing beach though. Blowy as hell in spring and most of summer. There's not much here and I say that in a good way. I was piss-poor earning not much more than the dole but would think life could not get much better unless I won the lottery. Locals very cliquish, though. Not great access to the river if you are a boatie, there is one ramp on Warrill Creek. Great place for a family holiday with kids, you can tell from the caravan park the same families keep coming back again and again. Cute little bowling club. Reliable car an absolute neccessity, preferably an off roader capable one to fully enjoy the area.

A great "hideaway" area that is beginning to be known. beautiful area on the beach on the lovely mid north coast, the area which is recognised most even climate in Australia.
ADVICE: Get in while it is affordable.

jons14 "ADVICE: Get in while it is affordable." Not any more, that ended in about 2002. You either now have always owned a place there or you're f-ing rich to buy in.
