There's a variety of surrounding trails for bushwalkers to explore, including short walks around North Head and Acheron Ledge walking track nearby. Enjoy the water view from the shaded timber deck and a swim at the sheltered beach, tucked away from the crowds.

The refurbished beach house has all the modern comforts. Huge windows bring the outside in, and you’ll feel immersed in nature. The only other property nearby is Yellow Rock Beach House, 100m away. Judges House was formerly owned by a Supreme Court judge and enjoyed as a family getaway. It’s great for active families, friends travelling together, bushwalkers and couples on a quiet getaway.

In winter, it’s an ideal spot for whale watching. Bird watchers will love it here at any time of the year. Murramarang National Park abounds in bird life, from owl species to sea birds and even a penguin colony.
