Angel Sussurri, a story of a family journey…
In the heart of the Yarramalong Valley stood a sad and lonely Manor House. It had once had a grand reputation as a place of food wine and laughter. After some time on the market, along came a passionate family with a dream. That was us.

We have lived in the Valley near 20 years and had been hoping that someone would revive the Manor as it was a well needed resource to the Valley and surrounding areas. It seemed that providence had marked our family for this task. Since March this year when we purchased the manor we have been scrubbing, painting, demolishing, building, decorating, cooking and somewhere in between getting some sleep.

We are now able to open the business with our Bottle Shop, Café, Deli, Floral Artisans and Giftware, Restaurant, Beer Garden and now our  beautifully appointed accommodation that we are so proud of, is ready for guests.

Our Deli is stocked with cheese from Little Creek Cheese, La Tartine organic sourdough, salami and antipasto delights of a quality you can’t find in supermarkets and local ethically farmed eggs. In our café you can enjoy a cup of Danes Coffee, with a homemade scone or cake in the afternoon or one of our all day breakfast hotpots, pancakes and selection of other lunch time specialties.

Friday and Saturday evenings, our restaurant is open with Chef Renee cooking some food to tantalise your tastebuds, while choosing from our selection of boutique Australian wines or indulging from the Whisky bar and finishing your night off with a sleepover in our luxurious and quirky Manor rooms which will make you feel right at home.

Our unique venue is available for private functions, intimate weddings or events.

Business Hours:
Café, Deli, Floral Artisans and Gift Shop: 9am -3pm Wednesday to Monday
Restaurant and Beer garden: Friday and Saturday 6pm -10pm
Or for private functions on request

Lonely Planet has listed the Central Coast’s Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park as the 8th best animal adventure in the world! Our Walkabout Park is on the Top 10 list alongside places like the Galapagos Islands and Yellowstone National Park. And this world-ranked real life working wildlife sanctuary is right here on our doorstep. Walkabout-logo

With 80 acres of fox-proof bushland, it is home to kangaroos, koalas, dingoes, pythons, wombats, devils and all their feathery, furry, spiky and scaly friends. Many of the animals have been rescued and can’t be released back into the wild to deal with people, dogs, cats and cars. Instead, they are safe with the rangers at Walkabout Park.

Step into the animals’ world where you not only get a hands-on introduction to Australia’s weird creatures, but you can also feed the alpacas, cuddle the bunnies and meet their other farmyard friends.

Join in activities like boomerang throwing and animal encounters throughout the day, or set off with a map to explore the bush tracks and visit ancient Aboriginal sites, or hire your own personal ranger to take you behind the scenes.

Or book a Wild Sleep Out full of ranger-led night-animal encounters, with your choice of a private eco-cabin or family-sized tent with everything included.

100% of proceeds are spent on the animals and bush, so you are helping to save the planet just by visiting.

Now that temperatures are on a downward slope and the days are still long it is the perfect time to try the Coast to Lake Walk if you haven’t already had the pleasure. This pearl of a walk includes easy use paths and boardwalks, grassy knolls with parks and play equipment and rock platforms with rock pools ripe for discovery.
Coast-to-Lake-walk-mapAlong the way you will discover the diversity of our coast line, you’ll see swans on the lakes and pelicans at the channel and if you keep our eyes peeled you can see whales and dolphins out to sea.
If you have all day to spend on the walk stop for a short detour up the Long Jetty, a play in the park at Toowoon Bay, a skate at Picnic Point, a swim at The Entrance Ocean Baths or simply take a sit on a bench and enjoy the exhaustive views at Edith Ring Rest.
Dogs are allowed on the majority of the walk as long as they are on a lead so why not take your fur family along to join in the fun.
The walk covers 7.6 kilometers, can be covered in two and half hours at a moderate pace and is divided into four sections (see map).
