The Neighborhood

The Myall Lakes area is one of the most diverse and delightful on the NSW coast. Shinglers Cottage is located on a rural property in close proximity to lakes, beaches and forest trails. The closest beach is Seal Rocks which is an easy 20 minute drive or about 25 minutes to Bluey's, Boomerang and Elizabeth Beaches a little further north. Myall Lake is literally across the road and through the bush but the nearest access is at Mayers Point. Turn left out of the front gate and there is a dirt road on the right about 500m along. The track down to the lake is quite rough and probably requires a 4WD but is a lovely quiet spot. The nearest boat ramp access is at Bungwahl which is 14km to the east. There is a better concrete ramp at Neranie Sands about 3km further on. Turn right at Bungwahl in the direction of Seal Rocks and less than a km turn right at the fisherman’s co-op building on the right and follow the signs. Neranie Sands also provides shallow water and sandy bottom ideal for children to swim. There is also a good boat ramp at Violet Hill at the passage between Myall Lake and Boolambayte Lake. There are also a number of forest drives with one of the tallest tress in NSW not far away down Stony Creek Rd at Boolambayte. There is also access to the Wallingat National Park via Sugar Creek Rd just north of Bungwahl. The nearest golf courses are a 9 hole course at Bulahdelah or another 9 hole course at Sandbar which is just past the Smiths Lake turnoff about 23km from Shinglers. Both courses are very casual and good for kids to have a hit. The nearest championship courses would be at Forster (50km north) and Tuncurry (50km north). Great Lakes Winery is worth a visit and about a 25km drive via Wattley Hill Rd which runs off The Lakes Way about 4km to the east of Shinglers. It is a wonderful area with plenty to explore or just have a quiet beer or wine on the veranda at Shinglers.

Getting Around

Great Lakes Buses based in Bulahdelah have a regular service along the Lakes Way but a car is really required to enjoy the area.

Other Things to Note

There are often cattle on the property so it is essential to always close gates. Water is from tank storage so some care is required with usage

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.

Place's rules

Shinglers Cottage has been our family retreat for 20 years and we are pleased to be able share what is a special place for us. We present the house as we enjoy it and trust that guests will respect that and leave it largely as they have found it. Smoking is not permitted within the house. Pets are not permitted inside the house. Given that there are cattle on the property, dogs must not be allowed to chase them. The water supply is from tanks and although there is ample quantity, guests should be mindful of water use. Fold-up chairs are not to be taken away from the house. In wet weather, the ground can become soft so always keep vehicles on the gravel drive or parking area.
