How to arrive at Our Location


Kiwarrak Country Retreat is located 3.5 hours from Sydney and 2 hours from Newcastle. Beautiful local surfing and swimming beaches, large supermarket, and the restaurants and cafes of Old Bar village are within 10 minutes away. The property is situated adjacent to Kiwarrak State Forest and Khappinghat National Park and is a convenient 10 minute drive from the major town centre of Taree.



  • Please note that GPS devices, including Google Maps, often direct drivers to turn off the Pacific Highway at Godfrey Hill Road, which is unsealed and subject to flooding. The following directions will provide a slightly less adventurous journey:
  • Take the Taree Service Centre/Old Bar exit from the Pacific Highway. If coming from the south, turn right at the roundabout and from the north, turn left onto Old Bar Road. Follow Old Bar Road for approximately 4.5km. Turn right onto Half Chain Road, which is unsealed (opposite Taree Kennels). Kiwarrak Country Retreat is 2.4km down Half Chain Road, on the left.
  • Please be aware that Half Chain Road is an unsealed road and therefore its condition is variable depending on weather. After heavy rain, potholes may be prevalent. Taree Council is responsible for the maintenance of this road and we advise them as soon as it begins to deteriorate, then regularly until it is re-graded. They are usually relatively responsive but if you would like to make your voice heard, you can contact their call centre on 65925399.
