Let Mystery Bay take your breath away
Mystery Bay Cottages is a hidden gem on the far south coast of NSW – only footsteps away from Eurobodalla National Park. With views to the majestic Gulaga (Mount Dromedary), the 32-acre property resonates with Indigenous history and offers bushwalks, ocean swims, bike rides, snorkelling and star gazing.
The cottages are a five-minute stroll from Billy’s Beach, where you can discover 500-million-year-old rock formations.
With lush countryside, more than 80 pristine beaches and unspoiled coastline, Eurobodalla is an ecological wonder. Wallabies, kangaroos, echidnas and nearly 100 species of birds ensure that your stay is filled with nature.
There are a variety of accommodation options, from architecturally designed cottages to cabins and glamping. The cottages are comfortably spacious and self-catering. They feature raked ceilings and full kitchens, plus log fires for toasty winter nights.
Enjoy a winter get away at Mystery Bay Cottages.
Mystery Bay Cottages is conveniently located between two towns. Take a left-hand turn onto the Princes Highway for a five-minute drive to Central Tilba. The heritage village is home to one of the South Coast’s oldest pubs, Dromedary Hotel (“the Drom” to locals), and the famous fudge at Central Tilba General Store. On Saturday mornings, pick up fresh produce at the local market in the Big Hall, then head further into the forest for lunch at Tilba Valley Winery & Ale House. For creative cocktails later in the day, stop at Sweetwater – a smokehouse, bar and grill all in one.
Or, take a right-hand turn and ten minutes later arrive at the small beach town of Narooma. Tuck into local oysters and exceptional piña coladas at Quarterdeck, which overlooks the turquoise water of Wagonga Inlet. Hire an electric bike from South Bound Escapes to explore the region, or choose another experience from the many they offer. Spot seals at Bar Rock Lookout and Australia Rock, or take a 20-minute boat ride to Montague Island to snorkel with them. From here you can head out for whale watching or take an evening tour to get up close to the island’s famous colony of Little Penguins.
While you’re in this unique corner of the globe, don’t miss the Eurobodalla Food Trail for the ultimate paddock-to-plate experience, and the Blue Pool at Bermagui. Then there’s Mimosa Wines on the Sapphire Coast and neighbouring Bega Valley Shire’s 101 beaches.
The list continues, but we think some things are best left a mystery.
