The Local Area

Warialda is located in Bungwahl in the Great Lakes region on the NSW Mid North Coast, also home to Seal Rocks, Pacific Palms and Forster/Tuncurry. The Great Lakes is a glorious fusion of farms, beaches, lakes and national parks. Bungwahl is a small rural area just minutes from most of the attractions the region has to offer.

Seal Rocks is an easy 10 minutes drive from the property as well as other stunning beaches including Cellito and Sandbar, and Blueys Beach, Boomerang Beach and Elizabeth Beach. The nearby Smiths Lake, Myall Lake and Wallis Lake are all great for fishing, boating and kayaking, and also offer picnic and swimming spots.

You’ll find Warialda at 44 Racecourse Road as you enter Bungwahl, about 17 minutes from the Lakes Way turnoff on the Pacific Highway just after Bulahdelah. Its an approximate 1hr 30 minutes drive north of Newcastle’s CBD and 2hr 30 minutes from the Pacific Motorway (M1) Sydney turnoff in Wahroonga.
