About Hawks Nest
Hawks Nest is one of the main gateways to Myall Lakes National Park, a network of interconnected lakes and rivers that is one of the most popular houseboating destinations in the country. These lakes are also superbly equipped for recreational boating and fishing.
The tranquillity of this particular region and its proximity to many outstanding natural attractions has made it a favourite holiday destination for those wishing to escape city and suburban stress. Many holiday regulars return here year after year.
The small township of Tea Gardens, on the Myall River at the southern end of Myall Lakes, is a perfect base from which to explore the surrounding waterways. Also, don't miss taking the ferry to Nelson Bay to watch for dolphins and walking to the top of Yacaaba Head, which guards the northern approach to Port Stephens but be prepared for a tough climb.
