TOP 10 Things to Do around Wallis Lake, Barrington Coast.

  1. Snorkel, fish & swim or learn to SUP (stand up paddling) at Jungle Surf Sup School. Wallis Lake has crystal, clear waters- ideal for all water sports. You’ll be hard pressed to find a better lake or more turquoise water & it’s as good as you’ll see anywhere in the world!
  2.  Surf like a pro at amazing beaches of the Barrington Coast, like Bluey’s Beach, or Elizabeth. There are so many beautiful sandy beaches dotted throughout this area & you can even swim with the dolphins, turtles & rays who have made this place home.
  3. Slurp & swallow some of the best oysters ever! Wallis Lake is the biggest producer of Sydney Rock oysters in the state with so many oyster leases & generational oyster farmers from Forster to Pacific Palms & plenty of seaside restaurants to devour them. Try Thirty Three Degrees, Graham Barclays Oysters & Wallis Lake Fisherman’s Co-op.
  4. Savour some great Barrington Coast seafood! You’ll love the local, recommended cafes & restaurants such as “The Recky,” SipsKambali, Drift Palms, Hueys at Blueys, Frothy Coffee Boatshed, Palms Artisan Bakery and Josant’s Taste of Malta. Or Thirtythree Degrees that specialises in oysters, and located waterside at 1 Palm Street, Tuncurry, NSW
  5. Sip & eat with a spectacular back drop of a Wallis Lake sunrise or sunset.
  6. Spend a day on the tranquil Wallis Lake walking track which intersects the shores and the ocean. Wear your cossies, soak up beautiful headland and panoramic views from Whoota Whoota Lookout. You’ll almost always see swans, pelicans, abundant birdlife & resident kangaroos too.
  7. Start at the Coachwood Loop and trek through magnificent, lush forest of Wallingat National Park, with its towering Eucalypts & pockets of melaleucas & cabbage palms. Picnic at Gur-Um-Bee or Sugar Creek Picnic area (lyrebird territory). If you fancy a spot of fishing, launch a boat or kayak down the river. Crabs & fish are in abundance.
  8. Sit back by an outdoor firepit at these fabulous accommodation like Sutherland Downs Retreat and relax with a nice wine, family, friends…while the kids roast marshmallows & play games in the yard. The sky is huge on the Barrington Coast & the stars are a plenty! Stargaze & look out for shooting stars.
  9. Survey the kids having a ball in the playground by the lake & the netted swimming area or head to the popular Aquatic club where kids can even learn to sail. Lovers of farmyard nurseries will enjoy Coomba Bay local hobby farms with a menagerie of animals to pat like donkeys, ponies & hens like in Wildside.
  10. Shop freshly picked organic produce or head to providores & ethical diaries such as Burraduc Buffalo Farm with excellent local produce. Supporting local businesses is vital.
  11.  Sooth away your stress & be pampered at Nourished Soul Sanctum Meditation Centre and Yoga or  go all out & learn to make cane baskets at  Pearl & Stone. If baskets aren’t your thing, perhaps a round of golf at Sandbar, Forster & Tuncurry Golf Courses!
  12. Visit Palms Artisan Bakery, Coombs Road, Charlotte Bay for a loaf or three!
