A Peaceful Community On The Shores Of Smiths Lake

Tarbuck Bay is a small waterfront community on the banks of the beautiful Smiths Lake on the North Coast. While the lake is no doubt Tarbuck Bay's best-known attraction, the locality is also within minutes of Myall Lake, Wallis Lake, Blueys Beach, and Boomerang Beach. The city of Forster is just a half hour to the north with Black Head, Red Head, and Diamond Beach an additional half hour beyond that. To the south, the city of Newcastle is a two-hour drive with Sydney an hour and a half beyond Newcastle.

North Coast Accommodation in Tarbuck Bay

Tarbuck Bay accommodation is perfect for holiday makers looking for a peaceful lakeside retreat. Neighbours are few and far between, but stunning views of the lake and the surrounding bush are plentiful. Tarbuck Bay holiday rentals tend to be waterfront homes with tasteful furnishings and all the modern amenities. One notable rental in the area is Lumina, a stunning, sun-soaked holiday home that was a Royal Australian Institute of Architects award nominee. Most homes are nestled deep in the majestic eucalypt forest, providing holiday makers with plenty of privacy and seclusion.

Enjoy Smiths, Myall, And Wallis Lakes

The area around Smiths Lake is incredibly popular with tourists due to its expansive waterways and proximity to other nearby bodies of water. Though your holiday home may be located on Smiths Lake, you're still within minutes to both Myall Lake and Wallis Lake, so there's always something to do on the water. Boating is immensely popular, as is fishing, sailing, kayaking, and other watersports.

So Much To Do And See Around Tarbuck Bay

Both residents and holiday makers enjoy the nearby beaches, including Blueys Beach, Elizabeth Beach, and Cellitos Beach. If you tire of the water, you can always take a trip out to the Sugarloaf Point Lighthouse in Seal Rocks. Established in 1875, Sugarloaf Point is one of only two lighthouses in the country with an external staircase.

Another worthy day trip in the area is a journey to see the tallest known tree in New South Wales, the Grandis. Over 84 metres high, the tree is thought to be around 400 years old.

Forster is packed with plenty of things to do for any holiday maker. For the kids, you'll find a fun park, wildlife safaris, and whale-watching cruises. Adults will enjoy the local winery, the fresh oysters, the local spas, and Forster's active shopping scene. If you're longing to see some of the North Coast's majestic forests, the nearby Wallingat National Forest, Wallis Island Nature Reserve, or Myall Lakes National Park are just waiting to be explored.

With three lakes, countless beaches, and plenty of exciting attractions nearby, Tarbuck Bay couldn't be more perfectly located for the ideal North Coast holiday.

Pristine Pet Friendly Perfection!

5 of 5
Have an incurable case of Sundayitis after returning from the paradise that is Topi Gums. Amazingly maintained property with great attention to detail and most importantly a warm, inviting ambience. Plenty of activities plus an eclectic library to entertain and pass the peaceful time. My whole family enjoyed their experiences and I am ever so grateful that a property of this standard is also pet friendly. Thank you both for sharing this gem!
