Discover why those in the know refer to Sussex Inlet as the Island Township. It’s as if you’re surrounded by water – surf beaches, rivers, lakes, lagoons and a tidal canal system winding its way through the town.

Set in an idyllic natural environment with great amenities, Sussex Rise is ideal for young couples, families and people looking for a relaxing lifestyle change. Of course the splendour of Sussex Inlet means Sussex Rise will be equally attractive to retirees and those seeking the good life.

Go snorkelling, scuba diving, sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, boating, swimming or surfing. Sussex Inlet & Basin Yacht Club organises sailing events from October to April each year on St Georges Basin and an annual Family Fishing Carnival is held for a week each July.

Aside from an abundance of water activities, Sussex Inlet also has its own golf course, lawn bowls club, indoor swimming pool and tennis courts.

If bushwalking is more your style, there are plenty of reserves and bush and beach walks in this unspoilt natural environment that is reknowned nationally and indeed internationally.
