Schoolhouse Cottage, American River

Schoolhouse Cottage was built late in the nineteenth century as the first schoolhouse in American River. It was subsequently turned into a house a few years later. The front two rooms are original, with timber floorboards and matchboard walls and ceilings. A modern rear section was added recently, sympathetic to the period and furnished accordingly. The cottage sleeps six comfortably, with two living areas. Situated right on the foreshore, close to jetty, boat ramp, tennis courts and children’s playground with spectacular sea views and sunrises.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
