Sea Horse offers international visitors (Chinese, American, English, German, Japanese and many more) a friendly taste of genuine Australian coastal life.
A relaxed and friendly beach community, with long clean and empty beaches, friendly locals, lush forests and of course the wild native wildlife (kangaroos and wallabys, echnidnas, possums and more) and a myriad of wild birdlife, Diamond Beach is situated an easy 3.5 hour drive straight up the highway from Sydney.
In season you can enjoy both land based and ocean whale watching, with dolphins regularly spotted year round. And the area boasts excellent fishing of all types.
International visitors to Sydney, can spend a fabulous few days exploring the Sydney tourist sights and then take a pleasant (hire car) drive up the east coast exploring as they go. The drive to Diamond Beach is an easy ½ day drive (just 3.5 hours in fact) up the legendary Pacific Highway (M1) and pleasant detours via the Central Coast or the Hunter/Newcastle region can be easily incorporated into a drive up.
The NSW mid north coast region and in particular Diamond Beach is a great option for international visitors wanting to experience ‘living like a local’ and the ‘true blue’ Australian coastal lifestyle (without all the tourists) and yet stay in easy reach of Sydney and the Kingsford Smith international airport, alternatively Diamond Beach is a great stop over for independent international visitors travelling the Australian east coast.
Overseas visitors staying at Sea Horse can enjoy a little bit of extra ‘hand holding’ and personal friendly attention from Dianne and Chris to help them make the most of their stay and enhance their ability to enjoy and experience Diamond Beach.
Whether its information and local suggestions provided in other languages eg Mandarin; recommendations or information on language translation apps or hiring an interpreter; directions and guidance on the easiest way to get from Sydney to Diamond Beach; what sights to enjoy on the way here; which are the best local markets to go to; where to find the freshest produce and seafood or how to find and take your photo at the ‘Australia Cave’, Chris and Dianne are happy to share their local knowledge with you.
Plus, what traveller doesn’t want to try some local delicacies exploring the world, so especially for our international guests, we put together a personalised ‘Aussie Tastes’ basket – Vegemite, Macadamia Nuts, chocolate honeycomb (aka Violet Crumble bars), Australian Afternoon Tea, eucalyptus lollies and more (contents may vary).
