Comboyne scenery is spectacular; with glimpses of the coastline, jagged rocky escarpments, thriving avocado orchards and of course - the dairy farms with their rolling green hills and contented cows. Take the backroads and explore. Major attractions nearby are Ellenborough Falls and the Borganna Nature Reserve.
Windrush is an easy drive from the coastal towns of Port Macquarie, North Haven, Laurieton and Bonny Hills where guests can enjoy surfing, fishing and discovering local markets and wineries. However, if you prefer to engage in village life, Yoga classes are held every Wednesday and Friday mornings at the local Hall or private classes can be arranged at Windrush. The village tennis court can be hired. During harvest season Ticoda Blueberries open for visitors to pick the plump, sun-kissed berries. And if, after all the activity you need a massage, an appointment can be made for massage in-house with a qualified therapist.
Although no evening meal is provided - Comboyne Ex-Servicemen's and Citizens Club serves bistro meals Fri and Sat evenings. The Udder Cow Cafe is also happy to provide an evening meal by arrangement. Or the Hosts can organise a Barbeque basket ( gas barbeque is available on the shady garden verandah).
A walk around the Comboyne village is highly recommended. You will find a supermarket with fuel, ATM, liquor and takeaway food outlet. There is also motor vehicle repair/service facility. Across the road is a thriving farm produce store where farmers in trucks and tractors stop to collect their supplies.
The colourful murals and hanging baskets on the community centre enhance this vibrant village. The Udder Cow Café on the corner is the place for big homemade pies and coffee. Inside the community centre is tourist information, and local arts and crafts. Not to be missed is the Art at the Old Church which is full of interesting and quirky original paintings, sculptures and pottery.
The art deco Hall has been restored to its former glory and is well utilised by the community and is also home to the local preschool. The Public school features a fantastic vegetable and herb garden which the students care for use and in their Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program. Wheelbarrow Wednesdays will see the students selling their surplus produce outside the Community Centre.
The Showground is well maintained, the showpiece of which is the Billabong building which was constructed by volunteers in 2015. The craftmanship honours timber traditions and skills used by the pioneers of the plateau. Soon the community will have their own museum "Hurrell House" to display the history of this highly productive rural area.
