    Hawks Nest is a quiet town of about 1,300 people and is a 2.5 hour drive North of Sydney along the main Sydney to Brisbane freeway.  Access to the beautiful Bennetts beach is just a two minute stroll and the surf life saving club is also only a couple of minutes away.  This means that adults and children can safely swim between the flags. The beach is over 30km long and 4WD vehicles are allowed to drive on the beach once a permit has been purchased from the local shops.The unit is also only a 15 minute walk or a five minute bicycle ride to Windy Woppa beach which is a non-surf beach facing Port Stevens.Only a 2 minute walk from the unit is a small hotel with restaurant, pizzeria, and DVD hire store.  A further 5 minutes along the footpath is the Myall Lakes 18 hole golf club with bistro restaurant.  Hawks Nest also has a number of shops (including pharmacy, general store, bakery, restaurants and small supermarket amongst others) about 10 minutes walk from the unit.Hawks Nest is a 15 minute bike ride or 5 minute car drive to Tea Gardens where there are boats and kayaks for hire to explore the extensive Myall River and Lakes system.  Recreational fishing in this area is also very popular.  A holiday at Hawks Nest gives the opportunity to swin at either surf or non-surf beaches, kyaking, fishing, dolphin and whale watching (at the right time of year), walks in National Parks and plenty of bicyle options.
