The Experience

Mystery Bay Cottages is a hidden gem on the south coast of NSW – bordering onto Eurobodalla National Park and Billy’s Beach. With views to the majestic Gulaga, the 32-acre property offers privacy, rest and relaxation, bushwalks, ocean swims, bike rides, bird watching, snorkelling, star gazing…

There are three types of holiday accommodation, from self-catering cottages to cabins or glamping. The cottages are architecturally designed and comfortably spacious. Cabins are smaller and ideal for couples and young families. For an elevated camping experience try our glamping. The hot showers under the stars are divine.

We are conveniently located between Tilba and Narooma, both of which have many dining, activities and shopping options.

Our nature-based accommodation provides a unique combination of beaches, forests and country when exploring all this stunning region has to offer.

Pamela, UK

We have stayed here pretty much annually for 15 years. Great with young kids but now just as 2 oldies. Close to nature. Well designed and maintained cottages. Very well managed by delightful Mel. Very fairly priced for a quality stay.

Choose from our  three styles of accommodation.
Our cottages, cabins and glamping are all designed to meet your needs to unwind and rejuvenate in our natural wonderland.


We have 6 architect designed cottages. Each cottage accommodates up to 5 people. Our cottages are spacious with loft ceilings. Ideal for holidays with families and friends in summer and winter (wood fire). There’s an expansive lawn leading from the cottages’ balconies where children can play under your watchful eye and you’re less than 5 minutes walk to little known Billy’s Beach.


We have 3 well designed cabin. Each cabin accommodates up to 4 people. We call them cosy cabins because they are smaller than our cottages. They are ideal if you are planning to spend some of your time exploring. Authors often use them for writing retreats and they are still only 5 minutes to Billy’s Beach.


We’ve elevated camping in comfort and style with a little funkiness too. Everything from your tent’s entrance mat to the spacious cathedral ceiling tent, bedside tables, lighting, storage and super comfortable bed with quality linen. You’ll be warm as toast in winter and well ventilated for summer. You’ll love your privacy and enjoy sharing the well crafted kitchen, bathroom facilities, dining area and fire pit with your fellow glampers.
