The book costs $30 from the Fire Station (Sunday mornings) or from the Karuah Visitor Center.

A quick update:

  • St Johns Op shop Bulahdelah will be opening Mondays in addition to the normal Friday and EFTPOS is safely available.
  • Tea Garden’s Ice Cream Shack, a long time favorite, have reintroduced tables and chairs outside safely in accordance with COVID guidelines, as have many local eateries so stay local for eating out.
  • Sunset cruises are still steaming away from Tea Gardens / Nelson’s Bay but be sure to book on 0412 682 117 or book online at
