As a place renowned for world-class surf, playful dolphins, whale migrations (which you can witness all from our top deck!) as well as beach & rock fishing and lakes peppered with paddle boarders, 88SOUTH is considered to be located in one of the best spots in the Southern Hemisphere.
Nestled on beach reserve land and built to capture views of the vast ocean and hinterland, you’ll be mere steps away from Boomerang Beach and a quick five-minute stroll to Elizabeth Beach as well as Blueys Beach and village. In between the spectacular sunrises and near constant ideal swimming conditions, you’ll never want to leave.
Boomerang Beach is located in the Barrington Coast region, on the New South Wales mid-north coast. It’s a laid-back coastal town in an area known as ‘Pacific Palms’ which is named after the cabbage tree palms. Boomerang Beach itself receives its name for its shape, and is renowned as a mecca of sorts for surfers, with the rocky ledges forming great waves.
The perfect escape for the nature lover, it is nestled by the Booti Booti National Park and borders Wallis and Smiths lakes. It is a short drive from Myall Lake National Park and the seaside fishing village of Seal Rocks, home to Sugarloaf Point Lighthouse, the second most Easterly point of Australia. You’ll find plenty of places for fishing, stand-up paddle boarding and surfing.
