New South Wales cottage description

The Funky Shack is in a great location for quiet breaks surrounded by beautiful bush, ocean and waterways. Amazing bird, sea and wildlife. The vintage ferry leaves from the jetty just 500 metres from the Funky Shack and on a Sunday in peak season, the ride to Yamba comes complete with a jazz band! Stunning, unspoilt place just an hour from the Ballina/Byron Bay airport and a great place to base yourself to explore all that the local region has to offer.

          The beautiful north coast of NSW Australia, Iluka is a small fishing village surrounded by the mighty Clarence River on one side, the Pacific Ocean and beautiful beaches on another, world heritage rainforest on another and the Bundjalung National Park at the back. Amazing wildlife and bird viewing, you will often see emus and koalas and in season, great views from Iluka Bluffof the humpback whale migration.

          Year Purchased: 2002

          About: I fell in love with Iluka the first time I went there. It is so beautiful and peaceful with amazing beaches and the stunning Clarence River. I live an hour or so away in the Byron Bay hinterland and found myself going to Iluka as often as I could. When the property came up for sale, I was lucky enough to be able to buy it.

          Why New South Wales:
          The Funky Shack is a wee heritage listed fishermans cottage - one of the originals in Iluka dating back to the 1920's. Its in a great location close to the river and the village. When I first bought it, it was run down and needed lots of work and love. Its now a great, comfortable cottage and has a great ambiance. I love it and feel privileged to own it and hope to retire here one day.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          The Funky Shack now has a huge verandah along one side - so big its the same size as the rest of the house! Its such a wonderful place to relax, watch the parrots in the native garden, read a book in a hammock, play coits, have a great BBQ dinner party or just watch the evening come in with a glass of wine.
