Experiences

Dovecote has been operating as a farm since 1834, and the 1866 Miller family homestead still stands beside the Princes Highway nearby.

Stroll down the front of the estate and across a private walkway to patrolled Werri Beach and Lagoon, offering the ultimate surfing and swimming adventure. Turn left from the property and join the popular coastal walk where you will be met by natural hidden rock pools and mesmerising views across rolling hills and dramatic clifftops, stopping only for fine coffee in the township of Kiama.

Quaint country shopping mecca Berry is just a short drive away and offers some of the most wonderful dining experiences on the South Coast.

In addition to the services listed below our concierge can tailor many more activities, tours or bespoke South Coast experiences to meet your interests and needs.
