Situated right on the waterfront where the Scamander River meets the ocean located midway between Freycinet and The Bay of Fires. Scamander is an excellent spot to stay, allowing you access to the many beautiful More surrounding areas local attractions, National Parks, walking tracks, not to mention the fantastic surf beach located right at the front of the property or the amazing fishing, yes right off the lawn at the front of the property. 2 x 2 bedroom apartments, 3 Studios & 1 Spa Studio; all renovated, self contained & spacious; I even iron the sheets!Pelican Sands is a true getaway location, right on the waterfront where you can relax and re-charge your batteries. Owned & operated by Maureen & Graeme Gill - we look forward to welcoming you. Less
