Cottage Black01

Places to Visit

Grants Beach (also know as North Haven Beach)

Cobe Cottage Black01 is a kilometre from North Haven Beach and is at the end of a small quiet cul-de-sac leading to the Camden Haven River, riverside walkway and park.

Beautiful North Haven Beach is dog friendly and runs for about 3.5 kilometres. Council lifeguards and the Camden Haven Surf Club patrol the beach during school holidays. Dogs can run free north of the patrolled area and at the southern end of the beach is the Beach Break Café, picnic tables, showers and other amenities.

You can see the latest movies at The Plaza Theatre, a 7-minute drive from Black01. Built in 1959, it inspired Baz Luhrmann to become a filmmaker.

North Haven is well serviced with a range of fresh seafood, cafés, restaurants and pubs within close proximity.
