Although Mallacoota was only accessible by sea, it became popular with tourists as early as 1882. Mallacoota played an important role in WWII as headquarters of the Royal Australian Air Force coastal surveillance. Visit the Mallacoota WWII Bunker Museum, about an eight- minute drive south-west of town, to see interesting and varied displays all relating back to the town’s wartime contributions. Today Mallacoota is a peaceful paradise, with terrific opportunities for boating, fishing, walking and picnics. SETTING HIGH EXPECTIONS If a clean and inviting stay is what you seek while in Mallacoota, you can’t go past a property managed by Hammond Property Services. and John Steel finally made the move to make the eastern-most Victorian town their permanent home when they purchased the Silver Bream Motel and Self- Contained Flats in late 2013. And they love it. “We’d always holidayed in Mallacoota, and loved it. We’d always think as we drove out of the town after a visit, “Why can’t we stay?” Leonie said. So when finances allowed it, the couple jumped at the opportunity to buy the Silver Bream Motel. “We have a lot of interna- tional visitors and people travelling from Sydney to Melbourne who pull off the main road for a break,” Leonie said. “When they get here they wonder why they haven’t pulled in sooner. It’s just such a beautiful place.” Just a three-minute walk from the centre of town, a five-minute walk to the wharf/boat ramp, and not far from the stunning beaches and national park the Silver Bream Motel and Self-Contained Flats are the perfect base for further explorations of the area. Amelia Hammond has set for herself and her team high expectations, ensuring each of the properties they manage is sparkling when visitors enter and well appointed with everything they’ll need for a relaxing getaway, right down to chocolates on arrival. “First impressions count,” Amelia said. “First impressions are the lasting ones and can make or break a business. “We manage properties with the idea that if we impress visitors on their first visit in the peak season then they’ll come back during the off peak, so our property owners receive top service as well as bookings to go with it throughout the year.” Hammond Property Services currently service four properties in and around Mallacoota, all meticulously styled to a theme by Amelia. Accommodating up to eight people, the settings are varied. Amelia matches visitors to the best holiday property for them with views of the waterways, bush settings and in town convenience all catered for. Owners will be pushing to beat the attention to detail provided by Hammond Property Services when offering their properties to happy holidaymakers. WHY NOT STAY? Having holidayed in Mallacoota for years, Leonie Mallacoota’s sandy beaches and rocky shores are just two of the beauties on a long list of natural wonders begging to be explored in the region.
