Ladies’ only holidays are certainly on the rise and shine. Whether it’s a fastidiously mapped out sisterhood adventure or an ‘on the whim’ challenge to dive in the deep end and take a spontaneous vacation with your best friend. All you really require is fellow women wanderers with an exploratory nature and a general lust for life.
Maybe your idea of a holiday heaven centres around a relaxed beach days haze buffered by health and wellness activities. Or perhaps it’s a combination of action packed outdoor adventurers of the surfing, kayaking and hiking kind. Whichever your style, you’re bound to find one of the following female friendly Barrington Coast getaways very appealing.
THE PRIVATE HOLIDAY HOME // WYNOLA BOOMERANG
How does a sunset beach stroll and self-mixed cocktails aka happy hour at home sound? And, what about a starlit dinner together with your female friends on a sprawling veranda with a bountiful seafood feast? There’s no need to overthink a Wynola Boomerang Beach holiday itinerary. Just take each day as gently or as lively as it comes and relish in the fact that you’ve found a peaceful Barrington Coast haven with your ladies. Think, long stretches of sandy beaches meeting lush subtropical landscapes, plenty of recreational activities and an insta worthy dreamscape home that sleeps up to 9 of your besties.
BOUTIQUE ACCOMODATION // BLUEY’S MOTEL
A short 3 hour drive from Sydney and you’ll arrive at Bluey’s Motel. Think super cute, retro cool vibes, poolside rooms and a brief 200 metre walk to an incredibly pretty secluded beach. There’s only 10 rooms available at this intimate boutique motel, so definitely book ahead to secure a spot with your best girlfriends. Tip: your Barrington Coast home away from home is right by Bluey’s Beach village which has gourmet cafes, a cellar, and an epic pizza place too.
