Make a self catering apartment or holiday rental in Hawks Nest, Australia your home away from home

Hawks Nest is on the coast of New South Wales just north of Newcastle. It is on a peninsula of land between the Tasman Sea and the Myall River. The town was named after a huge hawk's nest in a tree that was once used as a navigational aid to guide boats on the Myall River!

Things to Do in Hawks Nest, NSW

Hawks Nest is the perfect spot to choose for those wanting a quiet beach holiday in a relatively unpopulated area, although it can be busy with Syndeysiders at weekends. The sandy beach runs for miles and is ideal for long walks along the edge of the waves, swimming, snorkeling, diving, bush walking, dolphin spotting and fishing. Much of the area is covered in coastal scrubland and is best explored by 4WD. There are plenty of small shops and restaurants serving Hawks Nest holiday rentals along with a local golf course.

Places to Visit Around Hawks Nest, NSW

Just across the river is the community of Tea Gardens which is a pleasant place to visit across the Singing Bridge. It got its name from the sound the wind makes in the bridge railings which at times sounds like a wind harp. At the northeast end of the bridge is the Jean Shaw Koala Reserve which is a wildlife corridor for native wildlife such as koalas and dingoes to reach the Myall Lakes. Myall Lakes National Park is a great area to visit. Cross the lake system on a small car ferry run by the National Parks and Wildlife Service at Bombah Point. This was a traditional aboriginal crossing point on the four lake system. The village of Bungwahl and the Seal Rocks are worth a visit.

Beautifully renovated house in a fabulous position close to Bennett's Beach, Jimmy's Beach and shops. Very tastefully decorated to give you a lovely relaxed feeling. Incredibly well equipped with everything you need for a stress free stay. Bathrooms are very new and modern. The owners are very accommodating and lovely to communicate with. A wonderful week at the beach.
