In the winter months, humpback whales begin passing by Sydney on their northern migration from the Antarctic waters in the south. During the migration, we often see whales breaching, particularly males who can put on a competitive display to impress the females. We have a number of fantastic viewing spots nearby, and while we can’t promise you a sighting, with our local knowledge your chances are pretty high!
Relax and unwind on our beautiful balcony at Happy Hour at 5pm every Friday. Local musicians provide the perfect atmosphere as you enjoy watching the sun set over the ocean. All welcome.

Farmers Market Visit
Sargood provides a shuttle service to/from the famous Beaches Market which takes approximately 10-20 minutes from the resort. The market is located at Warriwood on Fridays and at Frenches Forest on Sundays.
The Beaches Market was founded by Lindsay Frazer and Phil Taylor, who saw the need for a local place to shop on the weekend where locals could enjoy the lifestyle and activities that the Northern Beaches has to offer. The success of these markets, which quickly grew from 17 stallholders to over 100, has attracted the best traders from as far as Port Macquarie, Dungog, Orange, Young, the Southern Highlands and local growers.
The markets showcase high quality produce, usually grown or made by the stallholder themselves. With entertainment for kids, live music and space to simply sit on the grass and enjoy the festival like atmosphere, the Beaches Market is not only a great shopping destination but a great activity for family and friends to enjoy together.

Home Automation Program
Home automation is an integrated environmental control system, which increases independence by providing a way to remotely control aspects of the home environment. For example, you may use an iPad to open the front door, or use voice control to turn on the lights.
Our demonstration sessions will show you some of the key features of the home that can be controlled, the different control options, and some of the important considerations for installing such a system in your own home. Many of our guests have been so impressed they have home automation they have adopted these systems in their homes.
