Jan Juc neighbourhood is relatively small but jammed packed with activities and things to do. Our neighbours are good friends of ours and have come to our aid iif we are unable to attend to anything urgent. Windarra Grove is particularly a quiet street and with residents living in the street permanently.
THE BEACHES AND SURF
The Ocean is literally just over 800m away - a very easy walk straight up Domain Road. And when you get there you will be blown away with it's sheer beauty and quality of surf. If you are into exploring caves - depending on the tides, you will love.
There is also a park only 300m away which has everything from a footy oval, playground, skate ramp, basketball and netball rings! Great for a game of cricket or just throw a ball around.
HORSE RIDING MAYBE?
If you fancy a horse ride - Spring Creek Horse riding is a fantastic school for all levels.
WALKING AND BIKE TRAILS
We will supply you with information on many different walking trails, Some trails are also ok for biking especially Jan Juc to Bells or Jan Juc to Torquay or Torquay to Bells... So many places to visit and explore on foot or bike.

The local pub for an evening meal or cold drink, Swells and Birdrock for coffee and breakfast in the morning (although Birdrock open for a cold beer in the afternoons in Summer), the Cave for Pizza and Jan Juc Fish and Chip shop - spoilt for choice all on the same strip.
