Pacific Palms is a region hosting many small beachside villages, giving you plenty to explore during your holidays. Smiths Lake is at the southern end, with a fantastic coffee house, the Frothy Coffee Boatshed. After lunch hire some of their watersports gear, from boats to catamarans, bait and surf skis. There is a great picnic area and playground for the kids right on the lake.
As you drive north, you’ll reach a headland overlooking Boomerang and Bluey’s Beaches. Bluey’s Beach is on the southern side, rumoured to be named after an unfortunate cow that fell off the headland. It’s turned into a premier destination for Sydneysiders looking for a quiet retreat, and both beaches have excellent surf breaks. At the northern end of Boomerang Beach is Charlotte Head, a massive rocky headland that rises straight up from the ocean. It forms the southernmost tip of Booti Booti National Park, which features a wide array of scenic lookouts, rainforest walks, excellent fishing and an abundance of native wildlife. The Booti Hill walk is fantastic for ocean scenery, beginning at the Ruins Campground Park Information Centre.
Following the Lakes Way, stop in at Sugar Creek Toymakers and have a look at their unique wooden toys. The Sugar Creek Flora Reserve is a great spot for an afternoon picnic, and has a gorgeous walking trail that takes a little under 30 minutes to complete. The birdlife here is abundant, but you need a 4WD to make it to the final stop at Whoota Whoota Lookout. If you don’t have a 4WD, why not book a tour or a scenic flight and catch it all from the air?
