Accommodation Bungwahl

Discover The Charm Of Bungwahl With The Mainstay

Welcome to The Mainstay, a small 10-acre coastal farm in the small town of Bungwahl.  Bordering Myall Lakes National Park and on the turnoff to Seal Rocks, we offer the true luxury of switching off, with no TVs.  We did however cave in and installed Wi-Fi for those who quickly need to send an email or make a phone call (the entire area has very little phone reception).  This is iconic Australian holiday accommodation at its best.

The Mainstay Farm Stay: A Unique Holiday Experience

Uniquely located in the bush, and yet only nine minutes’ drive to the iconic Seal Rocks Beach, The Mainstay offers holiday accommodation unlike any in Seal Rocks.  It is quiet (houses are at least 50m apart), an escape from mainstream tourists (only four houses spread out on a 10-acre property) and completely secluded in the Australian bush.  The style is understated in its luxury.  All houses are fully self-contained and include quality linens, pillows and top of the range mattresses, towels, ground coffee, Bluetooth speakers, Smeg appliances and each has its own indoor fireplace.  

Even timber is provided, each house has a cool little khaki carry bag for collecting timber in the timber shed. The farm teems with birdlife and wildlife as we literally border Myall Lakes National Park on one side and we share a fence with the neighbouring farm’s beautiful green cow pasture.  The cows often graze right next to the fence and you hear them every now and then. Classic!  We have three resident kangaroos that make an appearance almost daily. One of the highlights of Bungwahl is that there is no light pollution which means the Milky Way is out of this world.   

Disconnect and connect

The Mainstay, in Bungwahl is one of those hard-to-find places: It is a holiday accommodation off the beaten track, yet with all those luxury creature comforts.  The Mainstay is the perfect base for thrill seekers and those who just want to relax.  The area boasts 4x4 accessible beaches (Sandbar and Treachery), is renowned for mountain biking trails, spearfishing, fishing, freediving, snorkelling (boat beach and beach number one), SUP-boarding, horse riding and kayaking! And for those who would like to take it easy, you can just stay on the farm. The communal central “shack” is home to a small library, a collection of board games, beach tennis, and even backyard cricket.
