Mirador: Why Live in Mirador?
Mirador Real Estate & Design
The area has proved popular with second and third home owners desiring to build their dream coastal property. The Mirador locality offers outstanding views, and you will find large modern homes similar to that gracing the shores of the Sydney coastal suburbs. Vacant blocks remain available for sale, although these are being purchased by savvy investors and home owners. Prices are extremely reasonable and city dwellers have recognised the potential of value priced land with views so close to the beach.
Mirador is a minute away from Tura Beach. Tura Beach is equipped with a shopping centre that accommodates a supermarket, butchers, a bakery, hairdressing, a liquor store, take-away food, pizza shop and the Tura Beach Tavern. Also located in Tura Beach is the workshop of the custom fishing rod building label HOTRODS – Perrie Thomas Custom Rods’. There is a Woolworths complex at the entrance to the town that is the host to our Tura Beach office, a pharmacy, an electrical goods store and a newsagency.
Schools, Education & Institutions
Mirador school aged children currently attend the Merimbula state primary school or private schools in Eden or Bega. Secondary colleges are located in Eden and Bega with a private Catholic College in Pambula Beach. A private Anglican primary school is reportedly due to be built in Tura Beach although construction on this has not begun. The Catholic primary school currently located in the Eden community is due to be relocated to the secondary campus in Pambula in 2012.
Distance From Cities & Transportation
Mirador is a short five minute drive from the popular coastal town of Merimbula and a half hour drive from Bega and Eden. Some bus services do operate within the area and full bus services are provided for school aged children. Sydney and Melbourne are an approximate six hour car journey away, and Canberra is an approximate three hour car journey. Daily flights are available from both cities to the local Merimbula airport. Interstate bus operators offer bus services to Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra.
Sports & Fitness
Tura Beach is a purpose-built community with its coastal golf-course as the centrepiece. The Tura Beach Country Club is the club with ‘the million dollar view’ set on a coastal hill within natural shrubland. It is home to both men’s and ladies’ golf clubs, men’s and ladies’ bowling clubs and the Tura Beach Tennis Club. The diversity of water environments within nearby Bournda National Park, combined with its extensive network of walking tracks, provides for a wide range of recreation activities. Fishing, picnicking, canoeing, bushwalking, surfing, swimming, prawning, camping and birdwatching, for example, are all popular activities within the park. Sailing, power boating and water skiing are also catered for on nearby Wallagoot Lake.
Restaurants & Cafes
The nearest restaurants and cafes are in Tura Beach or in Merimbula. The Tura Beach Country Club offers restaurant dining most nights and is suitable for families. The local tavern also offers reasonably priced meals and is family friendly, although a child minding room is available. There are limited take away options in Tura Beach however many Merimbula fast food options do home delivery to Mirador. For those who enjoy great coffee, Merimbula offers a great selection of cafes and restaurants with a wide international diversity.
In Bournda National Park, a short drive from Mirador, is a three room slab hut at Scott’s Bay. Scott’s Hut was constructed in 1890 by Thomas Scott. It was originally one of two buildings and was used as a kitchen, dining and storage area. It’s of bush post and beam construction with sapling rafters, slab walls, a timber floor and iron gable roof. The central room has a large stone fireplace with an iron chimney. The hut is architecturally and historically significant as a rare example of a vernacular building associated with the original agricultural settlement of the area. There are few slab buildings protected within the area and very few remaining on the NSW coast. The hut has been stabilised and renovated. You are welcome to take a look at the hut and information signs have been placed inside.
Mirador is bounded by the Tasman Sea in the east, the localities of Merimbula and Berrambool in the south and the locality of Tura Beach and Bournda in the west and north. A newcomber to the South Coast area, Mirador is a purpose-built community, catering to the increasing number of families who call the area home. This housing estate has established itself as a solid real estate contender to Tura Beach, offering home owners affordable modern style homes and large land parcels with outstanding views. Mirador is close to the Bournda National Park, an area rich in history. The Bournda area was intensively logged and farmed last century and the current park area is largely a regenerating landscape. European people began settling in the district in the 1830s, and the first reference to the Bournda coastline came in 1858 when the 50 ton ship The Vision called at Tartarra (Tathra) where a store had been established. The area is also rich in local Aboriginal history. The park has a rich history of Aboriginal occupation. It was an important food gathering place and evidence of hunting and tool making have been found in coastal middens and old camp sites.
