"A town that looks great on realestate.com.au"

Summerland Point, or as I like to call it Bummerland Point, is a small village on the stretch between Central coast of NSW and Newcastle.

The town itself is a small community, a little over 20 streets and it is called a town. I will make it clear that these streets are cobbled together in an awful fashion. Navigating the place is confusing at best, and as a resident you will often hear cars stopping checking their maps/phones.

The community spirit is in my experience low. The place suffers from typical low income issues, police are regularly going through the area.

To sumarise the town is small, poorly structured and layed out, suffers from being far from DECENT fair priced shopping facilities. The people are at best, at the very, very BEST indifferent to your own goings on. Community spirit and vigor is having drinking buddies at one of the establishments. Short of that you better have a nice boat or 4x4 to show off.

Ignore the hype.

Lifestyle - not what it seems.
Roads and traffic - Awful. Poorly laid out streets and loud/old cars are common.
People in general - I have had better conversations with trees.
Community - The community hall.
Pros
  • Relatively close to the highway for getting out of this place
Cons
  • Conceited people in general
  • Wannabe Rex Hunts and 4x4/biking enthusiasts
  • Dreadful community spirit
  • how the whole place looks squashed in!
  • the pot holes in the roads
  • the Teenagers

"Very Relaxing and friendly for everyone"

I love Summerland Point, it is quiet and tucked away, with friendly helpful people who live here. It is on the lake, has a boat ramp which is easy to access in a very safe area. If you have small kids it has a great place for swimming and BBQ's at Sandy Beach. The birdlife is great and everyone who lives here keeps an eye out for each other. It is also close to Snapper Rocks (National Park) and Cathryn Hill Bay, so you can fish in deep water, or surf, all within a few minutes of Summerland Point. If you want a big shopping centre then Tuggerah is not far away, with the Entrance, Budgewoi and Swansea all close by!!

"Slow down in Summerland Point"

I just love Summerland Pt . The birds are always chirping, the fishing is great ( monster flatties in summer ), the local shop owners are always friendly and Conrads pizzas are the best.
I reccomend going down to sandy beach on sunset with a beer and a rod and all the cares in the world just dissapear.
The worst thing about Summerland pt is the amount of teenagers that make alot of noise after they drink in the park, and alot of burnouts by the silly P platers ( just look at the marks on the roads around the area), and if i had my way, id be putting speed humps on the roads because they drive so fast for a 50kph area, and there are so many kids that play on the roads around here that its only a matter of time before we see a tragedy, and you can bet your life that a P plater will be the cause.
Apart from that, Summo is the nicest place ive ever lived.
