Welcome to Bonny Hills
Bonny Hills is a beautiful beachside village in the Camden Haven valley, which is located around twenty minutes drive south of Port Macquarie and just ten minutes from the Pacific Motorway. Sydney is an easy hour hour drive via duplicate motorway. This timeless valley takes in the Camden Haven River as it winds its way from a trickle up in the lush green Comboyne Plateau all the way down to an expansive estuary as it reaches the Pacific Ocean.
The river passes through the Camden Haven valley taking in the townships of Lorne, Kendall, Kew, Laurieton and Dunbogan, finally entering the ocean between Camden Head and North Haven. Bonny Hills lies minutes directly to the north, separated by protected coastlines overlooking Bartlett’s, Grants and Rainbow beaches.
