At OceanWhispers the activities available are only limited by your level of energy and imagination. Below are some ideas, but we suggest you come up with some of your own as well!

* Swimming ~ you can swim at the beaches, in the lake and at the lagoon and creek. You can even drive to Sussex Inlet indoor heated community pool.

* Bush walk. With Conjola National Park across the road there is no limit to the bush walking which can be done.

* Bike riding ~ with bush and beaches both available hop on your bike and off you go. Don't forget to try the paved pathway at the Swan Lake for a great ride.

* Dolphins & Whales ~ it is common to see dolphins out the front and also the occasional whale. However for an enjoyable day out on the water, and a bit more certainty, take a dolphin and whale watching tour with Dolphin Watch Cruises at Huskisson, which is less than 30 minutes away.

* Fishing ~ some great fishing is available for the amateur to the professional. You can beach fish, fish off the reef point or in the lake or lagoon. A popular location for first timers is the vicinity of the lake bridge.

* Boating ~ the local area with Sussex Inlet and Georges Basin is renowned as a boating and fishing mecca. So if you have a boat, bring it along. If not ten minutes to Sussex and you can hire a boat by the hour or day.

* Dine out ~ with several clubs in nearby Sussex Inlet meals are readily available. All clubs offer courtesy buses, so leave your car at OceanWhispers and enjoy a drink with you meal! Milton has the famous Pilgrims Cafe and for finer dining there are several options include the world renowned Bannisters operated by Rick Steins at nearby Mollymook.

* Golfing - Sussex Inlet has its own course and welcomes visitors and there are also the courses with the beach views at Mollymook.

* Surfing ~ less than 200 metres away from OceanWhispers beach house is 'the reef' with a great right hander and in either direction plenty of beach breaks. With plenty of beaches around you can get a wave in most conditions. A great place to learn to surf so try JB Surf School if you are interested in lessons while you are here.

* Scuba Diving ~ Jervis Bay offers some of the most spectacular and colourful diving sites in Australia. Huskisson has several dive shops who can cater to all your needs.

* Visit the wineries ~ there is a growing wine making industry in the region and plenty of choices available for a day of wine tasting. The award winning Kladis Estate Wineries is a good start and only up the street.

* Beach walk ~ you can walk for many kilometres along the local beaches. North will take you you North Sussex and South past Berrara will take you to the 'Mermaid Pools', great fun for the kids. If you have the time, keep walking South to Bendalong past the Walter Hood Memorial, the rock pools and cliffs for great views.

* Sightseeing ~ there are plenty of sights within less than a 30 minutes drive and many more if you go further afield. The Walter Hood memorial is to the south, Pidgeon house Mountain not far away and for a full day do the Mogo Zoo with the white tigers.

* Relax ~ if activity is not what you are after then just relax at OceanWhispers. There are plenty of books and magazines available and an assortment of movies. Sit on the deck with a glass of wine, listen to the birds or watch the kangaroos. You can enjoy a short walk to the Cudmirrah General Store, have a coffee and watch the sunset over Swan Lake.

Amazing value. Great house. Pristine beaches. Kangaroos. And a bonus outdoor fire pit!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a such a great time staying here. Camping plans were cancelled last minute for us and we came across this wonderful little gem for 12 of us to stay. So close to the beach with kangaroos wandering around the streets and dusk and dawn. So Aussie!! But the real bonus was the camp fire style fire pit in the backyard with plenty of space and chairs to sit around and still feel like we were camping. Well until we went inside and the house was fully equipped with everything we needed. And more! The house was very clean and perfectly set out for three families with children between 8-15 years old. Lots of games to play. Plenty to do. Two eating areas with one of them outdoors on a very protected deck. Two lounge rooms. A great little kitchen including a dishwasher. Three toilets!! Three showers (one outdoor). It was just a dream. So much easier than camping but with the same vibe outside at night around the fire. Can't recommend this place more highly. The location is amazing. Just a short stroll to pristine beaches with great sand dunes to slide down and Swan Lake which was great for fishing. Recommend picking up supplies like firewood and groceries on the way as you don't want to have to leave for anything!!

Great Location, user friendly house.

  • 5 of 5

Great property, and plenty of room for seven kids and 5 adults. A short walk to Cudmirrah Beach. We drove to Berrara Beach only because we had so much gear. The kids played for hours in Berrara Creek. The water is so clear and clean.

The woodland across the road from the house provided hours of enjoyment for the kids, they christened it The Maze. Also very close (a 3 minute drive) to Swan Lake, another perfect spot. Lots of beautiful trees, toilets and close to the cafe.

The outdoor area of the property is very good, with a great BBQ and a fire pit (we used this to toast marshmallows) and large enough for the kids to use up some of their endless energy. We drove out to Fisherman’s Rock - and hope to trek to the waterfall on our next visit!

The daily visit from the local kangaroos was also a highlight.

The property was clean and well maintained and well stocked with all kitchen utensils, crockery etc. Lots of hot water and the amenities were good. The owners were very friendly and helpful.

We would certainly recommend the property to friends and relatives.

We had a great time in a lovely area and a very comfortable and user friendly house.

Noelene West, family and friends

Such a great holiday house, just a couple mins walk from the beach, plenty of shops and a massive backyard where we frequently saw kangaroos. Will definitely be going back.

Great place for a large group holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at OceanWhispers! The house was large enough for everyone to be comfortable and there were multiple showers and toilets. The fridge was massive to fit all our food and drinks and the kitchen had all appliances we needed. Location was walking distance to the beach which is a necessity! Only negative I can think of is that the fans in the bedrooms were quite dusty and there were a few spiders about, maybe due for a big clean. I would happily return and stay at OceanWhispers again!

Owner's Response: Hi Amanda, We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Regarding the spiders we had just had a pest controller in a week prior so perhaps they were all forced out of their prior hiding places. As far as the dusty fans we have passed this info onto our cleaner who has since attended to that issue. Cheers

Great relaxing position

  • 4 of 5

Only a few minutes stroll to the beach, quiet location and plenty of space inside & out for a large group. Perfect for our English visitors who were amazed at the number of kangaroos strolling around the streets nearby. We’ll definitely be visiting again!

Great family holiday house

  • 5 of 5

Great family holiday house big enough for a few families and located only a short walk to the beach and river. Backyard is big enough for the kids to run around, kick a footy and enjoy a drink by the BBQ. Highly recommended!
