If you want to escape the tourist traps this is a good local. Beer and barefoot bowls on the green with a view to the ocean and escarpment. Sometimes there are bands on the weekends and the Thai bistro is good. Nothing much has changed here since the 60’s.

It’s touristy but the beer garden is beautiful with sweeping views up and down the coast. A perfect spot for a coffee or afternoon beer. Food is over priced and nothing to rave about but perfectly fine.

If you want a great work out, the 1 km vertical track from Austinmer to Sublime Point Lookout will make you sweat. It's not for the faint hearted but the views are well worth it. Take your wallet - there is a coffee shop and cafe at the top if you want a refreshment. Park at the end of Buttenshaw Drive, near Asquith Street or on Foothills Road if you approach from Austinmer.

Bushrangers Bay is another good spot for a day trip to snorkel and swim. Under an hours drive, it’s very protected from Southerly and Northerly winds. Seasonally it’s home to Grey Nurse Sharks, which are harmless but impressive to see. You’ll also see lots of other marine life if you take your snorkelling gear.
