Parry's Cove

Parry’s Cove by Sheargold is a new master-planned community situated on the pristine shores of the Myall River, adjacent to beach side historical villages of Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest, on the north shore of Port Stephens, NSW. This new community will become a benchmark for active healthy living utilising the existing bushland, abundant waterways, beaches and all the associated activities that can be enjoyed by all ages.

Parry’s Cove will be home to over 900 families offered in home sites from 400 – 1000sqm. All dwellings are set in this natural and enhanced riverside/coastal location with over 40% of the site reserved to protect the local Koala population and existing wetlands.

Sheargold, a boutique property developers and investors, intends to launch this new flagship residential project in late 2020.


The Parry’s Cove masterplan connects the entire development to the cove on the eastern side of the project. Through the inclusion of a main green and blue spine through the centre of the development Sheargold have been able to integrate the new living environment with the existing Myall River. This includes protecting and enhancing the natural environment. Subject to council and government approvals, it is intended that a boardwalk of regional significance will meander through the wetlands to allow walking, riding and running from the homes to the shore of the river and into the Tea Gardens Township, and linking over to the golf course and beaches.

Parklands & Outdoor Spaces

Multiple parks will connect as well as provide residents to retreat into nature. Expect to see everything from local indigenous artworks, meandering walkways and cycle paths, linear parks acting as a green spine to the community through to local historical themed interactive features.

Residents will be able to pick their activity for the day, or simply change the pace and take in the view

Local Facilities

The masterplan also integrates adjacent shopping and medical facilities located at the entrance to the project. These facilities offer a Coles supermarket, banking, bakery, post office, wine shop, fashion, café, pharmacy and Ochre Health Medical Centre.

With just a 10 minute walk, or even shorter cycle or drive, into the historic village of Tea Gardens with all its quaint offerings of tea houses, seafood and French restaurants, cafes, churches, and of course the village pub. A further 10 minute walk away, over the “Singing Bridge’’ lies the renowned holiday destination of Hawks Nest. Located adjacent to Bennetts Beach it offers an 18 hole golf course, Surf Lifesaving Club, an additional supermarket and everyday shopping.


Tea Gardens has a rich history. One worth exploring and celebrating.

Parry’s Cove takes its name from the areas history and distinct landscape. Part of the name is inspired by Sir William Edward Parry and his wife Lady Isabella Louisa Parry who were outstanding pioneers of the area, and who contributed greatly to the community.

The word ‘Cove’ was selected because it is a descriptor referring to the river bend adjacent to the project and its ability for the essence of the word to invoke a feeling of comfort, protection and security to the community’s future residents.

A number of precincts, each with their individual character and history combine to make up the Parry’s Cove Community and throughout the course of the development, we will explore and celebrate more great stories of this area for future generations to cherish.
