About the property


Welcome to Swanhaven and your 1960s holiday home, Burrawirrai. We were told that this Aboriginal name means 'by the water'. Swan Lake is across the road - only 30 metres away - with easy access to private sandy beaches, good fishing and very safe (predator-free!) swimming. Take a short walk to the end of Lake Drive where you can enjoy Swanhaven's picturesque recreation area with picnic tables, barbeques and a bike track to the next township of Cudmirrah.

Burrawirrai accommodates six guests in two bedrooms and a small bunkbed room. A backyard retreat/sleep-out accommodates two extra adults and may be hired for a small additional fee. The bathroom has plenty of hanging space for beach towels, and includes a shower and tub combination. The lounge and dining rooms create a fantastic communal area with 3x3 seater lounges positioned for optimum bush and lake views. At the end of the day, Swanhaven's sunset will calm the most frazzled nerves!

Set on a spacious corner block with native gardens and a huge four metre deep verandah, Burrawirrai faces National Park to the north and pristine Swan Lake to the west - only a stone's throw away.

Be charmed by beautiful landscapes painted by artist, Lolita Hamilton (available for sale), quirky retro pieces, relaxed furnishings, and perhaps a visit from one of our resident possums or kangaroos.

The South Coast awaits you at Burrawirrai.

Getting There

We are a scenic two and a half hour road trip from Sydney. Turn off the Princes Highway to go to Sussex Inlet, drive about ten kilometres then, before reaching Sussex Township, turn right into The Springs Road. After about three kilometres, turn right into Hoffman Drive. Continue for 150 metres and we are on the corner, in Lake Drive.

Time for ...

Swimming - The lake is suitable for young children who like to paddle. The water is shallow and so clean that the visibility is astonishing.

Kayaking, sailing and windsurfing - The lake is safe enough to explore for hours. It is an enclosed waterway and only opens to the sea every three years or so. This makes for relatively predictable conditions.

Waterskiing - There is a deeper part of the lake which lends itself to motorised water sports.

Cycling - Whether on road, off road or along designated cycle tracks, cycling is the way to go.

Watching a movie - There is a quaint cinema in the main road of Sussex Inlet, only five minutes by car.

Visiting the Club - There are RSL and Bowling Clubs in Sussex Township. Courtesy buses pick-up and drop-off in Swanhaven.

Going to the Beach - Berrara Beach is only a few minutes drive down the road. If you're feeling energetic, walk south for fifteen minutes to Cudmirrah Beach.

Taking a drive to Milton - The place is full of curio shops, excellent cafes and award winning restaurants.
