Tea Gardens Mid North Coast NSW

Updated: Sep 29

Located along the banks of the Myall River, Tea Gardens is a friendly little town offering a tranquil getaway. The town is surrounded by waterways and parks and is close to Hawks Nest, Bennetts Beach and Jimmys Beach.

Tea Gardens offers a few bakeries, cafes, gift shops, restaurants, medical facilities, real estate, ice-cream parlour, restaurants and fantastic fish-n-chips. In my opinion you must check out Two Fat Bakers (my favourite scone with locally produced jam).

As you would expect in a seaside village like this, there is also a fish co-op and the Tea Gardens Hotel is a popular spot with both locals and visitors. The fish n chips are great!

The art gallery is worth visiting and the Police Station is charming.

The Flame Trees along the river are stunning when in flower. A perfect spot to have a picnic under some shade.

Tea Gardens population grows exceptionally during the holiday season. With plenty of short-term holiday rentals for visitors. If you're camping or caravanning, then Hawks Nest is where you should go.

Things to do include fishing, kayaking, taking the ferry across to Nelson Bay, swimming, camping, bushwalking, visiting the art gallery or appreciating a beer at the pub.

The Art Gallery showcases a wide range of artwork by local artists and boasts a beautiful garden.

The Myall Quays shopping centre offers a supermarket, cafes, post office, bakery and other speciality shops.

Tea Gardens is a slow-paced village so came prepared to relax and unwind.
