Surfing and Swimming

There are surf beaches at Sussex Inlet (patrolled in summer) and Berrara which have beautiful clear water and soft yellow sand. Dolphins can often be seen in the late afternoon about 150 metres offshore.

Boating, Water-Skiing and Sailing

Inscape farmhouse is a 10 minute drive (in part along a 6 km dirt road) from Swan Lake, a sandy and largely shallow lake suitable for small boats and very child friendly.

The boat ramp at Sussex Inlet gives access to the large unspoilt St Georges Basin and the crystal-clear waters of Tullarwalla Lagoon.
Open sea access is also available from the boat ramp across the bar at the end of Sussex Inlet.

Fishing and Diving

Sussex Inlet provides a great variety of fishing opportunities from the sheltered waters of Swan Lake and the Inlet itself, to the larger area of St Georges Basin and the mangroves around the creeks that feed into it, to deep sea fishing and off-shore diving.

Deep sea charters for up to 8 can be arranged with Escape Fishing Charters who operate from Greenwell Point, about a 40 minute drive north of Inscape Farmhouse.

Escape Fishing Charters


There are many kilometres of fire roads throughout the Conjola National Park which provide beautiful and peaceful horseriding trails. Swan Lake is about a 1 hour ride away through the bush and a good day ride is to the Boyd Lookout, on the eastern side of the highway, about 14 kilometres from Inscape Farmhouse.

The facilities at Inscape Farmhouse include stabling and accompanying holding yards for two horses. There is also an adjoining larger exercise yard. Feed can be supplied at an additional cost if requested at the time of booking.

Guided horseriding tours of the National Park can also be arranged at extra cost if desired.


There is an 18 hole golf course at Sussex Inlet which welcomes visitors of all standards: you will find that one of the interesting local hazards are kangaroo spectators.

Antiques, Arts and Craft

Milton is an historical village about half an hours drive from Inscape Farmhouse and, with plenty of parking, you will enjoy strolling around the antique shops and the arts and crafts shops. There are also several delightful coffee shops and gourmet delis where you can have a quick coffee, a sit-down meal or purchase a ready-cooked gourmet meal to be brought back to the Farmhouse.


There is a great variety of wildlife that lives on the farm and in the National Park around the farm and all you need to do is to sit in the pergola or the screened veranda in the early morning or late afternoon and you will see a regular parade of native wildlife who came to the farm to feed.
At Badgee, the northern part of Sussex Inlet, kangaroos can be seen for most of the day feeding on the front lawns and footpaths of the houses.

As well as the dolphins off Sussex Inlet beach during summer, whale-watching charters can be arranged during winter with Escape Fishing Charters.
