I am from Switzerland and was traveling in Australia when we came to Netherby House for a coffee 3 ½ years ago and fell in love with the place. Through a conversation with the previous owners we found out that they were ready to sell, then finally after we were back in Switzerland we came to an agreement and we bought it! We came back and we’ve been here ever since.
Now we have many friends and consider ourselves as part of the community – that says enough about just how generous and supportive people in this valley are.
My must visit recommendation for all travellers to the area is Smoky Cape Lighthouse. But coming in a very close second is sunset at Netherby House, which is just beautiful. I also recommend the walk around the headland at Hat Head, breakfast at Racecourse Beach, and sunset on the Railway Bridge.
