If it's a coastal escape you're after, basing yourself at one of these Hallidays Point villages will allow you to relax, unwind and soak up the laid back lifestyle associated with this well-kept secret of the Barrington Coast.

Hallidays Point Village has a small shopping precinct, bowling club, pub, restaurants and takeaways.

There are excellent beach fishing opportunities and a pretty picnic area with barbecues under the shade of Norfolk Island pines that line the entry to the beach. The lagoon that separates the sand dunes to the village centre is one of the many beautiful features of the littoral rainforest nature reserve at Black Head.

Meander along the rainforest walk to the dedicated whale watching platform for expansive views along the coastline.

Black Head is also home one of the biggest markets in the Barrington Coast, Black Head Bazaar, which happens on the first Sunday of the month from September to May.
