About Yellow Cottage:
Yellow Cottage itself is a"home among the gum trees" to get away from it all. Stroll around the property, which has two dams and a range of mature trees that are home to a family of kookaburras and many of the local kangaroos.
Comfortable beds, quality linen, full-equipped kitchen, large rustic outdoor undercover dining area with barbecue - a perfect place to unwind and just relax.
Families of kangaroos and kookaburras call this acreage home, and the softly rolling style of the property invites you to walk around it. Use the binoculars we leave for guests to take a closer look at the wildlife.
A choice of beaches are just minutes away. The "point break" surf beach is 6km down the road at Agnes Water (top recommendation: get up around 6am to watch the surfers ride the waves in the early morning sun - simply amazing). The calm bay of Seventeen Seven (so picturesque and perfect for just lazing, and safe for children) is a further 6km on.
Enjoy fishing, snorkelling, diving, surfing (there are surf schools for both adults and children), kitesurfing, canoeing, hire a scooter - or just laze around on the beach or in the sea (the water is warm).
