New South Wales’s South Coast reaches from Sydney to the border with Victoria in the south, and includes some of the most beautiful areas in Australia. Burrill Lake epitomizes this; a small suburb that is the perfect location for holiday homes. This intimate town is personable, beautiful and full of things to see and do.
Burrill Lake provides both mesmerizing views and fun activities. The lake itself is largely surrounded by natural bush land, so is a perfect place to enjoy nature at its purest and get some fantastic views. The photographer within you will emerge as you capture brilliant sunsets and the interesting wildlife that surrounds the lake. The Lake is also a centre for activities that suit all ages. It does not matter how old or active you are – you are sure to find something that “floats your boat” on the lake! It is possible to hire boats, kayaks, water-skis and canoes – so you can opt for a leisurely float around the lake, or for the more adventurous, you could be attached to the back of the boat in water-skis!
Burrill Lake is so large that it can offer different experiences at different parts of it. If you want a quiet and tranquil day, you can head to Kings Point where the water is calm and the atmosphere is peaceful. Or to the local ski club, which has an area for picnicking, so you can watch the fascinating water sports, or even get involved yourself. You could choose to pack up some food from your holiday rental and bring it over, or take advantage of the café by the water.
