Palm Beach to Coasters Retreat
Some Of Our Happy Customers!
“Essential Palm Beach Activity- Fabulous fun.”
Get you across to the basin and other river beach area including camping with facilities. Inexpensive way to see Pittwater and Hawkesbury areas- and the tea is not bad,
“Way to travel”
Travel by ferry from Ettalong to Palm Beach is charming, especially if you don’t get to experience waterways like this.Use the bus (Opal Card) to get around.
“Ettalong to Palm Beach ferry service”
We took the opportunity to enjoy the water experiences offered by Fantasea. We caught the ferry at Wagstaffe, which is a lovely quiet spot on the Box Head peninsular. We had a great ride via Booker Bay Wharf as Ettalong wharf was being “improved”. Palm Beach was warm and relaxed on a sunny winter’s day.
“A breath of fresh air!”
A great way to add another dimension to the Northern Beaches. Took the Ettalong ferry over the Hawkesbury River, dog and bike friendly, clean and comfy, value at $11return. A nice blast of sea air and worth a visit to the Paranga?pub. Just do it.
