Meet Your Park Hosts

Tanya Jonas and Alvena Abbott

Boambee Creek Reserve is a wonderfully unique and beautiful natural environment. As the resident care takers we see it as a great privilege to be a part of the reserve and its continued improvement.


Alvena and I have been holidaying here in Sawtell for the past 25 years and have decided that it is about time we became locals.  With the ability to park within a few steps of the beautiful water’s edge, picnic and fishing spots, playground and BBQ’s, the reserves facilities have something for everyone. It’s the ease of creating your own special experience that makes this truly a location like no other. We take great pride and respect in maintaining this natural piece of the mid north coast, providing an amazing location for the community and all visitors to the area.


Boambee Creek Reserve is an amazing place to Recharge and Reconnect.

It’s Your Park, We look forward to seeing you soon

Tanya and Alvena
