Make your own holiday history at The Heritage Guesthouse

Holidays are all about making wonderful memories that get us through the daily grind until the next time you take a break. If you are looking for a holiday that will live in your memory forever, then look no further than the historic and welcoming Heritage Guesthouse at South West Rocks.

Located on the rim of Horseshoe Bay and only 5 hours north of Sydney or 51/2 hours south of Brisbane, this is the ideal place to break your journey if you are travelling up the east coast.  However, there is so much on offer in the region and the guesthouse is such a refuge from the everyday that you may wish that you had booked in for a few days to refresh and revive.

The property is a lovingly restored 1880s guesthouse boasting 9 rooms, all with ensuites and uniquely decorated and with different sleeping configurations, so there is something to suit everyone.  One of the rooms, Tahlee, has been designed for easy access and wheelchair access and bathroom facilities are available, making this a property with wide appeal.

The onsite Heritage Café is the perfect spot for breakfast, lunch or a coffee while you decide whether you are going to take advantage of all the activities the area offers.  For those who can’t bear to drag themselves away from the verandah or garden courtyard, the café will deliver to you.  And for those who want to get away – with each other! –  a picnic hamper is available on request.

Perhaps the best place to plan your activities throughout your stay is from the verandah, chilled glass of wine in hand, as you contemplate the ocean and let your cares wash away.  South West Rocks is where the Macleay River meets the sea and is a region of pristine beaches, subtropical climate and natural beauty.

Visit historic Trial Bay Gaol in the Arakoon State Recreation area for a taste of our past, or Smoky Cape Lighthouse in Hat Head National Park, one of the most beautiful parks on the east coast.  The sparkling waters are home to a myriad of marine life and whales and dolphins are regular visitors.  Water sports abound, including surfing, snorkelling, sailboarding and scuba and land-based activities include golf, tennis, lawn bowls and squash.

When you return from your day out, the Heritage Guesthouse welcomes you with accommodation that offers everything, including air-conditioning, DVD/VCR/Austar, fans and heaters.  Full kitchen facilities are available and many of the local restaurants will deliver meals, so you can make the most of your stay in this magical place.

The variety of accommodation on offer means you can get away from it all with the one you love, your family or your friends.  In fact the only problem you will find is that you won’t ever want to leave – be warned!

  I just love South West Rocks and this place is right opposite the main beach and down the street from the pub.
