Holiday Accommodation in Mystery Bay, New South Wales, Australia

Mystery Bay is a stunning little coastal gem, tucked away in a hamlet between the seaside towns of Tilba Tilba and Narooma on the south coast of New South Wales. The quaint, laid back holiday town is not by any means a bustling city metropolis, which just further adds to its evocative charm.

The humble beachfront village almost appears to be untouched by modern enterprise, with just a handful of holiday cottages and holiday homes along the shorelines. Mystery Bay is a nature lover’s haven and the perfect place for a romantic getaway, without the chaos of city life.

Things to See and Do

Kayaking

Enjoy a unique outdoor adventure and the chance to explore the neighbouring Narooma on the water, by kayak. Glide through the emerald waters of the bay and get a rare chance to experience the bird life in their natural habits as they go about their day to day lives. During the summer months you can kayak at sunset and at selected times in the evenings with the dusk light adding to the experience.

Diving and Snorkelling

The crystal clear waters in and around Mystery Bay offer some of the best diving and snorkelling spots on the southern coast. The bay is teeming with marine life and with the water being so crystal clear – up to 20 metres at times, the conditions are perfect. During the summer months the water temperature can rise as high as 25C, so you don’t have to worry about a teeth chattering swim out in the open sea. Look for information regarding the hire or snorkelling and diving gear in your holiday accommodation.

Beaches

The gorgeous and protected beaches of Mystery Bay and the surrounding areas of Narooma, offer some of the most spectacular surfing spots for board riders to enjoy. Safe swimming conditions, warm waters and crystal clear rock pools, means that all of the beaches have something for everybody, of all ages to enjoy. Book your Mystery Bay holiday cottage on the beachfront and you won’t have to walk far after breakfast to get down to the soft beach sands.

Walking

With such picturesque surroundings it will be hard to stay indoors of your holiday home and not get out and enjoy the fresh air and the beautiful scenery. The 850m long Mill Bay Boardwalk, is a fantastic and easy meander for people of all fitness levels and ages. Being easily accessible for wheelchairs, there is no excuse for Granny to stay behind and not get out to the seaside. For the more intrepid bush walker, there are plenty of coastal trails along the beach and through the coastal brush surrounding the bay.

Climate

The mild and temperate coastal region of Mystery Bay has an enviable climate, with summer temperatures kept down by sea breeze that blows in from the coast. Summer is during October to April and the pleasant temperatures climb to 24C during the day, and drop to a cool 20C at night. Winter brings mild temperatures of 18C during the day and 8C at night.

Mystery Bay is the perfect holiday spot that has loads to offer visitors no matter what season they wish to book a holiday rental, although it may be busier during the school holidays, so if you are after a quieter holiday, it may be preferable to visit while school is still in session.

Getting there from the UK

For visitors flying into the region, the nearest airport is located in Moruya having made the initial international flight into Sydney. Visitors will land at Moruya Airport where you can pick up a rental car and drive the scenic route to your holiday house in Mystery Bay. The short drive should take no longer than 40 minutes, so if you arrange to pick up the keys to your holiday rental from the airport, the rental agent will know when to expect you.

We were just looking for a week to unwind after Christmas and a busy end of year .Graeme's ( our host ) Lakeview Cottage overlooking Wallaga Lake, about a 10 minute drive out from the main Bermagui township, provided just that - welcoming , peaceful and unpretentious . The cottage appears perhaps a little run down from the outside , but it has that nice relaxed holiday "home" feeling which we really enjoyed . It has a large rambling garden which leads down to the lake,( we swam across that one hot day ), is very clean inside with spacious main bedroom and kitchen and has a lovely deck to sit out on and enjoy the view. Location is perfect - just a little out of the way to be quiet and restful, but only a short drive to the surf or rock pools for snorkelling . We just stayed a week, but would have been happy to stay a month ! A big thankyou to our helpful host also !
