Location

Stanwell Tops, New South Wales, Australia

YellotailStay - Stanwell Tops is set in a small acreage of stunning rolling lawns with a sandstone surrounded dam and encompassed by bush.
We are a 1 minute walk to world famous Bald Hill Lookout, over the road from The Royal National Park and a 5 minute drive to Stanwell Park Beach. Bald Hill is a haven for hang gliders and paragliders and the view of the Northern Illawarra, the escarpment and The Sea Cliff Bridge is rated by many, as one of the best in the world. The start of the Royal National Park Coast Walk is 1 km away just past the iconic Otford Apple Pie Shop but there are numerous other bush walks near by, with a couple running next to the property.
The property is close to numerous wedding venues including those at Audley, Lillyvale and Stanwell Tops.
Coffee shops, restaurants and supermarkets are a short but spectacular drive to the south at Wombarra and Austinmere or a 5 minute drive north to Helensburgh. The Symbio Zoo is 5 minutes away with a golf driving range and putt putt across the road. The Boomerang Golf Course is a further 5 minutes drive. Horse riding at Otford Valley Farm is 5 minutes drive with the main trail running along our boundary.
Cycling and motor bike riding are popular pursuits in the area and there are many rainforest walks, 10-20 minutes to the north and spectacular escarpment walks to the south.
Rock fishing venues are all around, the orchard outlets of Darks Forrest are 10 minutes drive and the beaches of the Royal National Park and Audley are a half hour along Lady Wakehurst Drive. The Govinda Valley Retreat with its yoga and meditation centre and vegetarian cooking classes is just along the Hacking River and The Hindu, Sri Venkateswara Temple, a 3 minute drive.
Trains from Central or Sutherland can take you to Otford Station which is about a 1.5km gentle downhill walk from YellotailStay. If the walk from the station is too much we are happy to arrange a pickup if we are available.
Bald Hill and the beautiful Otford Valley really are the centre of the universe, but a long way from the stress of every day living.

Myself and my husband Carl are keen gardeners and hope to maintain and expand our beautiful established gardens - over 100 camellia trees, stunning when they are in bloom. We hope to incorporate more natives plants into the garden in the future. We have travelled extensively but never 5 Star. Backpacking is more our style, rough, at times uncomfortable but never boring. Last big adventure was India and can't wait to get back there. We are forever planning projects around the house - next a wood fired pizza oven which will unfortunately get in the way of bushwalking. I enjoy working with glass (lead lighting, warm glass) and presently learning woodwork. We both still work full time as teachers and life remains very busy. One of our favourite annual events is the Sydney Film Festival, watching back to back films nonstop for days - heaven in an armchair. We are knowledgable on all facets the local area and hope, as hosts to provide a 'bush meets the coast' experience for guests. We live a stone throw away from one of the most stunning lookouts in the world encompassing the beautiful Northern Illawarra coastline.
