We’re excited to be sharing with you the 5 must-dos when visiting our region. These have been hand-picked by locals who love their own backyard.
1. Springs Beach
Start the day at Springs Beach. Springs Beach is a hidden gem, accessible by car and a 10 min walk. It’s got a great surf break as well and is kid friendly. Springs Beach turnoff is on Springs Road. Head past the police station (on your right). Keep driving until you see the Paperbark Walk on your right. At this very location, turn left into a dirt road (sign reads Bush Heritage). You’ll be fine with a 2WD car if you take it slowly. It’s a 5 min drive.
2. Brekky & Coffee at 1770 Getaway
Go and grab breakfast and a Campos Coffee at 1770 Getaway on the corner of Springs Road and Bicentennial Drive. They open at 8am every day but are closed on Saturdays.
3. Walk off your breakfast on one of our many walking trails
Are you after a short walk with young kids? The Paperbark trail is what you want to do
If you’re after a real workout the Red Rock Trail is going to leave you gobsmacked.
The Butterfly walk (Round Hill track) at 1770 is one of the favourites – you’ll need approximately 50 minutes and it will take you to the headland and back.
4. Finish your afternoon with a sunset on the water
Did you know that 1770 is one of the only places on the East Coast of Australia where you can watch the sunset over the water? Finish your afternoon by watching the Sunset at the 1770 Marina or at Air Sea Rescue Park in 1770. There are bbq’s and picnic tables at Air Sea Rescue so bring a few sausages and some beverages. 1770 LARC! Tours and 1770 Liquid Adventures also offer afternoon cruises where you can watch the sunset. You can book them online on their respective websites.
