Summer hot spots on the south coast
The Lakes Dolphin Point is fortunate to be surrounded by magnificent waterways within easy walking, cycling or driving distance from the estate.
Centrally located near the year round holiday townships of Mollymook, Narrawallee, Lake Tabourie and notably, Burrill Lake and Dolphin Point, it’s no wonder The Lakes Dolphin Point location is driving high levels of enquiry for its new land release.
We thought we’d focus on our closest neighbours, Burrill Lake and Dolphin Point that will be easily accessed from 3 kilometres of cycle paths throughout the estate.
Burrill Lake takes its name from the aboriginal word for ‘wallaby’ and this watery playground is popular among boating, sailing, windsurfing, swimming and water skiing enthusiasts.
Picnic facilities are dotted along the vast shorelines of Burrill Lake and are ideal spots to relax with family and friends, feed the rainbow lorikeets and pelicans and take in the stunning water and bushland vistas.
North of the Burrill Lake township – which is home to the famed Fish Shop serving the best fish & chips in the region – is Kings Point. Here the lake is deep and is where you’ll find the local water ski club and clubhouse that operates on weekends and during holidays.
You can bring your own tinnie, ski or kayak or hire one from Burrill Lake Cruises and Fishing Charters.
Fishing is also a popular pastime on Burrill Lake and with a permit, anglers can bring home a catch of tasty flathead, bream, whiting or blue swimmer crabs.
Downstream where Burrill Lake meets the ocean at Dolphin Point, you can hook Australian salmon, tailor and whiting.
Before Burrill Lake reaches the ocean, the lake’s clear waters become shallower and are dotted with sandbanks and unique rock formations ideal for the kids to explore at low tide. This part of Burrill Lake is also a great spot for the kids to splash about in the shallows.
Offshore, the beaches north and south of Dolphin Point are surfing meccas, drawing surfers from around Australia and beyond. The area also has a number of learn-to-surf schools for novices and if that sounds too strenuous, there are also deep sea fishing charter and cruise operators eager to show you around this very special part of the south coast.
With so much to offer and so close to The Lakes, who wouldn’t want to spend time on the south coast during the glorious summer months?
