The Boathouse is picture perfect and feels like its fallen out of a home interior magazine. It oozes a relaxed beachside feel with its shabby chic rustic furniture that provides a backdrop for the bursts of colours from the fresh flowers and pyramids of fruit. Depending on the ages of your children, there’s a great choice of activities close by. From kayaking, fishing, walk up to Barrenjoey lighthouse and just happy go lucky beaching.
