The Experience

Located just two hours south of Sydney, Dovecote is the perfect base to explore the New South Wales South Coast.

Dovecote has a long history as an agricultural estate and remains a working farm and private residence. Our accommodations are designed to compliment the landscape and reflect its role as a functioning farm.

Surfing, fishing, wine tasting, dining, bush and coastal walking, are just a few of the possible leisure activities on offer.

The Farm

Dovecote has been operating as a farm since 1834, and the 1866 Miller family homestead still stands beside the Princes Highway nearby. As a working farm, you will be sharing with a herd of dairy cows. A short walk away, Werri Beach and Werri lagoon offer the beach experience. Nearby rockpools and sea cliffs will provide hours of adventure and sea-creature spotting. Further afield, a coastal walk along rolling hills and dramatic clifftops links Dovecote to the township of Kiama.

The South Coast

There’s more to the NSW South Coast than just magnificent untouched beaches and stunning coastline. Hinterland rainforest walks, mountain views, wine tasting and many outdoor adventures are all on offer.

The coastal town Kiama, famous for it’s Blowhole and rockpools, and Country shopping mecca Berry are just a short drive away.


Dovecote’s location in both a coastal paradise and important agricultural region makes for countless experiences and activities both on the property and in nearby areas.

Our concierge can tailor activities, tours or bespoke South Coast experiences to meet your interests and needs.
