WHAT TO DO

Avalon is situated on 400 acres of river flats and rolling to steep bush. We adjoin Biriwal Bulga National Park so the potential to keep walking is pretty limitless! We have 4 kilometres of river frontage to swim, fish, paddle or play in. We are also lucky enough to have a pristine rainforest creek environment bisecting the property – it’s about a 4 hour boulder hopping journey past pools and waterfalls to the impassable point and we are home to no end of native wildlife – looking for koalas is very time consuming but does result in a stiff neck! Watching the platypus is easier and more meditative!

One of our favourite things to do is lie on a lilo (airbed) and just let the river take us at its own gentle speed – traversing 4 kms takes about 90 minutes!

While you are at Avalon you can (if you want to!):

  • collect the eggs from the hen house
  • feed and pat the alpacas
  • feed the ducks and chooks
  • pat and stroke the horses (children’s riding can be arranged on request)
  • learn to drive the tractor
  • pat and talk to the cows
  • learn to milk a goat or cow
  • catch and cuddle a chook

If you want to roam, nearby you will find:

  • Port Macquarie for gorgeous beaches, whale watching, average shopping and essential supplies
  • Ellenborough Falls, stunning 200m waterfall (second longest single drop waterfall in the southern hemisphere) with lovely swimming hole for hot days
  • Comboyne Plateau, see one of the food bowls of Australia. Comboyne’s rich red soil grows blueberries, avocados, potatoes and grass for beef and dairy cows. Rolling landscape, pick your own’s and ten degrees cooler (550 – 750 metres above sea level)
  • Apsley Falls
  • Yarras Valley Olives
  • Wauchope with Historic Timbertown – steam railway, bullock driving, horse and carriage rides
