Hidden treasures in the neighbourhood

Pattimores Lagoon, Narrawallee Creek Nature Reserves, neighbouring The Long Weekend Retreat

Just a stones throw from The Long Weekend Retreat are the tranquil wetlands of Pattimores Lagoon, in our neighbouring Narrawallee Creek Nature Reserve. The Lagoon is perfect place to soothe frazzled nerves and immerse yourself in natural beauty and some of the best birdwatching on the New South Wales South Coast.

A short flat walk through coastal swamp oak forest and wet heath leads to a viewing platform with scenic water views. Fringed with magnificent paperbarks, the picturesque lagoon literally teems with waterbirds, and you’re likely to see southern emu wren, pied oystercatchers, pelicans and white-faced herons.

We have a wealth of maps and reference books at The Retreat to help guests explore the hidden treasures of the The Long Weekend Retreat neighbourhood.
