Unique self-contained Cottages

Choose from three appropriately named cottages, each unique in their surrounds and naturally blending with the enchanted forest, Banksia, Bluegum and Paperbark. All three are constructed from western red cedar and have red iron roofs to create the atmosphere of a country cabin. A quaint Australian country design albeit fitted with modern luxuries, our cottages encapsulates a traditional look influenced by a blend of Australian Federation and Californian Bungalow. Each has a large timber deck with spa and gas BBQ. With about 100 metres between cottages the bushland setting provides almost total privacy in which to relax. All cottages are a short stroll of approx. 500 meters to the beach.

Enjoy preparing your own home-cooked meals

And create memorable moments in the comfort of your self-contained cottage. Each cottage at Melaleuca Seaside Retreat offers a fully-equipped kitchen, perfectly suited for whipping up hearty meals or putting together a delicious picnic basket, ideal for a forest stroll or a relaxing day at the beach. After a successful day of fishing, the kitchen and BBQ Deck provide the convenient setting to cook up your catch of the day, be it a succulent grilled whiting, snapper, perch, or a flavorful bream. If fishing doesn't go as planned or you're not into fishing, you can always bring your preferred fish or choose from a range of proteins and other essentials at Manning Valley's finest local markets. A good starting point would be The Thursday Produce Market at Taree Park, just a 23-minute drive away. It offers a wonderful selection particularly for vegetarians seeking fresh, locally-sourced produce. The experience of preparing and enjoying a meal, whether indoors or outdoors is as rejuvenating as the surrounding natural beauty. It's an opportunity to reconnect with nature, savour the flavours of your creations, and enjoy the company of your loved ones, all set against the backdrop of a scenic and unforgettable setting; a true joy in the little things in life.
