The town was named after the Davis family, who left Northern Ireland in the early to middle 1800s to settle in this area.

Davistown offers parks with children's play equipment, BBQ facilities, undercover seating with tables and restrooms. You could set up a camp chair anywhere along the water's edge to try your luck and catch that elusive fish for dinner.

Whilst exploring this town, you will come across some of its large families of free-range rabbits and the multiple families of ducks that walk the parks and pathways.

If you are here on the 2nd Sunday of the month you will find the Davistown Waterfront Markets that offers many amazing stores, workshops, live music, street food, art and so much more.

Other towns nearby include Saratoga, Kincumber, Avoca Beach and Terrigal but we will leave those for another day!

It looks a picturesque spot Rob. It's one of those little towns we usually just pass by, but deserves to be explored.
