This is a Japanese restaurant in town and our favourite. We have never left disappointed after a meal there. The staff are very friendly and helpful , the Japanese beer on tap is superb I'm told and the food is next level. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Another great cafe in town, also open for breakfast and lunch with kitchen closing at 2pm. The service is great and the coffee is also worth parting with your hard earned. Their menu offers something a little different and they cater for coeliacs also.

This shop is in Pottsville is my favourite takeaway. I'm a coeliac and their full menu is 100% gluten free. To top this off, their food is delicious with a Japanese dining flavour to the offerings. The fish is nearly always locally sourced and changes with the seasons. I have never bought anything there that I didn't find delicious.

Sightseeing

The tidal creek, which takes you to the river mouth at Pottsville, is perfect for lazing in the water or the sun and is very safe for a family beach day out. Paddle boards or kayaks would be ideal for cruising up and down the waterway and ideal for viewing the abundant wildlife in this beautiful part of the world.

If you're into hiking or biking, there is something for you in the Nightcap Ranges. A short forty minute drive makes the perfect day trip. Finish it off with a takeaway meal from one of the many restaurants in Pottsville and relax at ours.

A short five minute drive to Hastings Headland will take you to some of the best views on the eastern seaboard. Byron Lighthouse to the south and Cabarita Headland to the north. It is popular for snorkeling around the rocks or at the bommies just offshore.

Great day out. 25 minutes to the south along the M1. Beaches, walks, shopping, coffee shops, restaurants and bars. The famous Byron Bay Lighthouse is on the mostly easterly point of Australia. You can park at the lighthouse for a fee or you can park at Wategos or The Pass or Clarkes Beach and do the walk which has spectacular views of the coast with many of our iconic wildlife characters on display at certain times of year and is clearly signed.

The gallery is definitely worth a visit. Entry by donation which is amazing. You can search information such as opening hours and days but the gallery also has a cafe for coffees or lunch with spectacular views to Wollumbin (Mt Warning).

If you want to experience a busier style day trip, Cabarita Beach is a ten minute drive north along the coast road and has cafes, restaurants and a beautiful boardwalk up to Norries Headland to view the whales performing in whale season. Once we saw a whale swim right into the bay and have a little look at the surfers there. The link below will take you to some spectacular images of this location. My photos never seem to do it justice. https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=norries+headland+cabarita+beach+nsw&qpvt=norry%27s+headland+cabarita+beach+nsw&tsc=ImageHoverTitle&form=IGRE&first=1 Cabarita also has a few dining options such as the Beach Hotel, Poinciana Cafe and Woolworths for grocery items.

This is a lovely little walk right on our doorstep. We usually walk to the back gate from ours which takes about 15 minutes but you can also drive to the gate. There is a map with the route marked in the folder. We recently took some friends for this walk and a koala walked out onto the track in front of us and ambled along for a bit before choosing a tree to climb. We have also seen wallabies and echidnas along these tracks. And a walk wouldn't be a walk if you didn't see some birds along the way. There is a short and a long walk, both clearly signed, but neither is very far or arduous. You could even safely take a wheelchair.

This venue has lots of cabaret style entertainment and live music from artists all over. Google them and see if they have anything on during your visit. Brunswick is a twenty minute drive down the M1. They also have a cafe with outdoor seating.

The sanctuary is always popular and is a forty minute drive up the M1 and has something for all ages. Google times and ticket prices for more information. Although a visit involves a border crossing into Queensland, in the current climate you should be OK to book some tickets.
