Local Koalas

We’re not sure of his name and not even sure if it is a he or a she, but we’ve decided to call him Jeremy after our wonderful carpenter. In any case, Jeremy the koala seems to have taken up residence as we see him at least a few times a week in our trees or just walking up the driveway. The Sea Zen environment is home to birds and other wildlife, including kangaroos and wallabies.

We have WiFi and welcome dogs

Sea Zen is dog friendly and welcomes dogs (and owners) who like having internet access. We know you sometimes have to stay connected even though you are in relax and holiday mode. Sea Zen provides you with internet access for all the fun things as well as the times you just have to do that work email.

Enjoy our secluded local beach

A 60 metre stroll to the beach, literally a 2 minute walk. Does it get better than this? Most of the year our secluded Separation Creek beach is yours alone.  Enjoy white sand and rock pools.

When the waves have retreated and the tide is low, you can enjoy the artistic design of volcanic rocks and peer into the small pools of water that form on the rocky shoreline. Life under the waves is endlessly fascinating with seaweed, starfish and kelp forests wafting in the water. The rocks are also a favourite spot for fishing.
