Live Music Venue

The History lives on 

The building has a beautiful history and magical ambiance, being over 100 years old and living through many reincarnations.

Initially a home built by Fred Richardson 1908 on the banks of Racecourse Creek, then Mr Ted Badger took the property over in 1922 and added a second floor. From what we've gathered, from then on it’s always been used as a holiday and entertainment venue. Imagine the scene back in the 1920s and ’30s: guests arriving over the Christmas holidays, some on horses, others using the dairy ferries mooring up at Mud Bishops and then some in old Fords and Holdens braving the slippery clay road from Taree.

Here’s an excerpt from Pat Badger, who arrived at the house in 1945: “Prior to the war, the old home was used as a guesthouse. Once the accommodation was full, Pop would erect tents for the overflow, and there would be up to one hundred tents. There was also a tennis court. Of course all the family had jobs allocated to them and there was no sneaking off to the beach before they were done. On Sundays, they often served over 100 meals as the surf club boys and day trippers came for lunch. Jean (Pat’s sister in law) said the most they served in one day was 240”.

The property changed hands again in 1957 when it was purchased by Cyrus Hayes. Shop renovations were carried out and it was recognized a bus stop. The building was reconstructed again when L and H Mitchell took over ownership and it was then known as Pacific Sounds.

Jazz bands used to play in the location where the restaurant is, horse races were common around Racecourse Creek (aka Badgers creek) and church was conducted the next morning on the dirt floor.
