2.5-3 hour drive north of Sydney you will find Pacific Palms. Set in between Myall Lakes and Forster this water-bound settlement derives its name from the many native palms that populate the area.
Pacific Palms is a small strip of land whose boundaries include the northern shoreline of Smiths Lake, south eastern shoreline of Wallis Lake and the Pacific Ocean.
Surrounded by water and national parks, Pacific Palms offers a truly beautiful coastal scenery, sub-tropical rain forests, pristine white beaches and three independent lake systems.
