Sawtell

Sawtell is a picturesque beach village, 10km south of Coffs Harbour. It is far enough away to enjoy its own identity and at the same time benefit from South Coff's university, airport, new hospital and international stadium facilities.

 

An established tourist drive (tourist drive 18) leaves the Pacific Highway at Park Beach and takes one south past the jetty foreshores along the link road through Sawtell and then back on to the Pacific Highway at Lyons Road, in the vicinity of the Butterfly Farm.

 

A local tribe of Aborigines, the Kumbaingeri, gave Sawtell the name of Bongil Bongil which has since been given to the newly allocated national park of wetlands which buffer Sawtell's southern perimeter. These wetlands feed Pine Creek and Boambee Creek, which are two very important fish breeding areas. 

 

Sawtell's northern perimeter is defined by the Boambee Creek and scenic headland lookout which boasts perfect whale watching in winter. The Boambee Creek Reserve is a great spot for a family picnic offering a kiosk, swings, toilets, and shelters with gas barbeques. It s a great place for the kids to swim, canoe of fish.

 

Beautiful tree - lined streets contribute to the town's "beach village" atmosphere. There are individual shops, cafes, restaurants and drinking holes, with people utilising the takeaway hamburger, pizza or fish & chip shops and sitting under the shady fig trees in the median strip to relax.

 

The local cinema takes you back in time because it has been lovingly restored to it's former glory and heritage. It shows current movies, old favourites and the travelling film festival which creates a lot of interest.

 

Sawtell is a popular tourist destination, not only because of the temperate climate and holiday facilities but also because accommodation is available at various grades and prices, all within walking distance to the village centre, beaches and creeks.

 

You will find numerous sporting facilities including golfing, bowling, boating, croquet, tennis, swimming, BMX and fishing. Sawtell also boasts famous surfing spots like Trapdors, Murrays, the track and Southies for the keen board riders, depending on the seas.
