Enjoy a pleasant countryside drive to the village of Nana Glen. Its name is derived from the Aboriginal name for the two-tailed lizard, a rare and mysterious reptile once sighted there.
The Orara Vale Vineyard in Nana Glen has aptly named its drop ‘Two Tails’ wine. The winery offers free tastings and sells a dozen different wines plus homemade jams and jellies. Across the road is Kafe Kookaburra, a lovely café with outdoor seating. Enjoy a coffee or lunch while listening to the birds or browse the shop with locally made gifts.
Nana Glen has a public swimming pool, which was opened in 2007 by actor Russell Crowe, who owns a sprawling property in the village and helped fund the pool.
The Orara Valley and Upper Orara Valley are home to a variety of guesthouses and bed and breakfasts for a quiet and relaxing country getaway.
