Eco Nature Escape

Wandha offers a perfect base for nature lovers, situated within a nature corridor from Wallingat National Park to Myall Lakes National Park. Within a 20-minute drive, you can explore three national parks, 13 beaches, and three lakes. Endless natural wonders await.

Nearby National Parks

The Great Lakes region encompasses three diverse national parks.

The closest forest to the property and in our eyes the best. Beautiful walking trails, an easy drive, mountain biking, scenic lookouts, horse riding, fishing, swimming, kayaking… you can do it all here.

Stretching from Port Stephens to Bungwahl, this national park has so many hidden treasures. Don’t miss the walk to Sugarloaf Lighthouse, Neranie, the Alum Mountain Trail and the beaches and walks at Seal Rocks.

Wedged between Wallis Lake and the Pacific Ocean, Booti Booti is home to Elizabeth, McBrides and Seven Mile Beach. Check out Cape Hawke Lookout and some other beautiful walks near Elizabeth Beach.

Favourite Walking Tracks

There are endless options for walks in the Great Lakes area. Here are some of our favourites.

Follow the signs through Seal Rocks to the historic Lighthouse. Park at the entry to Myall Lakes National Park and take the wide path up to the Lighthouse. Take the path on the south wide of the lighthouse to a grassy knoll which is the perfect lookout to spot whales, dolphins and grey nurse sharks in the shallows below.

Take in the scenic beauty of Wallingat’s expansive eucalypt forests, Wallis Lake and a 100km of coastline from Whoota Whoota Lookout. You can access it by car or take a number of walking trails to get there. It’s a must-visit spot for capturing panoramic views of the region’s natural wonders.

Bulahdelah Mountain is an Aboriginal Place with cultural, spiritual and historical significance to the Worimi people. It includes moderate-steep walking tracks and lookouts to respectfully explore and enjoy, including traditional tree carvings, a cultural space with seating and fire-pit, and visitor facilities.

Onsite Nature Experiences


Feed our worms your organic food scraps and watch a circular food system in action. The worms make castings that we use as fertiliser on our Harvest Garden.


Pack a spotlight and walk around the property after dark to discover the nocturnal wildlife. We have six nesting boxes to provide safe spaces for different species.


Don’t forget to pack the binoculars for endless birdwatching and wildlife spotting opportunities.


Download the Frog ID app and sit down by the dam recording the frog calls at dusk. You’ll be amazed to hear all the sounds.

Harvest Garden

We like to think of this as a community garden. Help yourselves to the fresh produce, show the kids how the produce grows and tend to the garden if you wish. All the tools are there in the garden shed. The kids will also discover the fairy garden.

Star Gazing

Away from the city lights, the stars on a clear night are amazing. Find the saucepan and southern cross. Look for the red star which is our neighbour Mars. Download the Skyview Lite app to discover the constellations and planets.

Wildlife Spotting

Besides birds and frogs, you might see swamp wallabies grazing, koalas, goannas, and visitors to our nesting boxes including sugar gliders, squirrel gliders, feathertail gliders, ringtail and brushtail possums and microbats.


Step into our wilderness for a ramble or some forest bathing. Over half our property is natural wetland and bushland. You’ll be going off the beaten track so where boots and take your phone for GPS.

Explore The Lakes

Discover the water wonderland of the Great Lakes with Smiths Lake, Myall Lakes and Wallis Lake.

With its calm waters, surrounding forests, and sandy beaches, it’s perfect for swimming, fishing, boating, and enjoying a peaceful lakeside picnic.

With over 40km of beaches, Myall Lakes is one of NSW’s largest coastal lake systems that offers countless opportunities for kayaking, boating, fishing, swimming and surfing.

Wallis Lake reaches from Pacific Palms up to Forster where it opens to the ocean. It is the biggest producer of Sydney Rock Oysters in the state and home to some of the tastiest fish and seafood in Australia.

Hire a kayak or paddleboard from Tony at Adacou. He’ll even bring the kayak or board to your chosen launch site on Myall or Smiths Lake. You can choose to go on guided tour of the lakes with him or a self-guided tour.

E-foiling is an exciting new water sports which has you gliding over the pristine waters on an electric hydrofoil. E-foils are silent, wake-free and with zero emissions so you can discover Myall Lakes in an eco friendly way.

Hire a boat from Frothy Coffee Boatshed to explore Smiths Lake or from one of the Forster boat sheds to explore Wallis Lake. If you have your own boat there are plenty of boat ramps within 10 minutes of the property.
