Ironbark Cottage at Karuah is a two bedroom cottage providing self-contained, self-catering accommodation for up to 4 people (1 queen bed, 2 single beds). It is situated in a quiet bush setting 2 kilometres west of Karuah Village, just off the Pacific Highway.
Ironbark Cottage is an ideal stop-over for those travelling north or south on the Pacific Highway, particularly if you have children and/or pets. There is plenty of parking space for your boat, caravan or trailer and a small fenced yard for dogs.
It is also a quiet retreat for those wishing to escape the pace and noise of busy lives for a weekend or a week and is a great alternative to the more crowded areas of Port Stephens.
A 25-minute drive will take you to Tea Gardens and Hawk’s Nest for beaches and cafes.
Nelson Bay is a 40 minute drive for ferry trips, dolphin watching and more beaches.
It is 30 minutes to Newcastle Airport (Williamtown), 45 minutes to Newcastle and 2.5 hours to Sydney.
It is opposite the Karuah 9-hole Golf Club and 2 kilometres from the RSL, Bowling Club and boat ramp, giving access to the Karuah River and Port Stephens for fishing, sailing, skiing and kayaking.
Adjoining Wallaroo State Forest is ideal for nature walks and mountain biking.
