Drift Away at Mystery Bay

Only 5 minutes from Narooma & the Tilba villages

Why do people keep coming back? Perhaps it’s the quality of our six private, spacious two-bedroom cottages set between National Heritage parkland and the Pacific Ocean.  It’s rare to find a destination which so perfectly blends a beach holiday with a peaceful country getaway – and even rarer to be able to enjoy it in the comfort and privacy of your own 4-star cottage.

Or maybe, it’s the way our 32 acre property combines all the attractions of a traditional beachside holiday, with the peace and relaxation of a country getaway. Our guests can spend the morning  swimming, surfing or snorkelling in crystal waters with beautiful Billy’s Beach only a short stroll out the back door and Mystery Bay Beach just 400 metres through the bush trail. Then in the afternoon they can explore the local forests and National Parks or just sit back on their verandah and watch our horses drifting across the landscape; with Gulaga Mountain as a backdrop.

Beautiful Billy’s Beach – just 150 metres away, with private access from Mystery Bay Cottages | MORE ON LOCAL BEACHES


Plus, the natives are friendly here – echidnas, wallabies, possums and over 70 species of birds are regularly seen at Mystery Bay Cottages. And, whales come heart-stoppingly close to the shore through winter and spring. Seals, dolphins, whales and penguins can be seen on guided boat tours to Montague Island. All along the coast a dizzying array of marine life provides ample opportunity for rock pooling and fishing.

There’s no traffic, no noise, no pollution and we’re minutes from Narooma, Bermagui and historic Tilba Tilba. Which means you can enjoy good food & wine, fishing, water sports, pristine beaches, horse riding, arts & crafts or a round of golf on one of Australia’s top courses at Narooma.

The best the South Coast has to offer is all within a 10km radius, so why not take our advice and drift away at Mystery Bay… | BOOKING ENQUIRIES
