Sawtell’s beautiful divided main street with its majestic fig trees creates an oasis and contributes to the town’s relaxed feel.

In recent years Sawtell seems to have awaken from its seaside slumber to find that it’s been put on the style map. Chic cafes and a bustling arts and live music scene have taken root but roots connected to its history and sense of being different.

Where else would a community raise over a million dollars to ensure the iconic First Avenue Cinema remains the heart of Sawtell?

Today Sawtell is smart but relaxed, and far removed from the bustle of nearby Coffs Harbour, even at the peak of summer.
