Description

Our 6 glass and timber cottages are architecturally designed to respect the natural environment and to celebrate the unique heritage of our surroundings.

The sun-drenched living area provides spectacular 360 degree bush and valley views and each cottage is positioned discretely within the foliage to ensure privacy. With polished timber floors and elegant interiors, cottage appointments are both stylish and comfortable with plenty of space to spread out and settle in. Floor to ceiling glass doors open to the surrounding veranda and provide the perfect place to put your feet up and watch the sunset or retire to the hammock to listen to the birds. The main living area also offers a large wood-burning fireplace as well as a television, DVD player and CD/cassette sound system.

The modern kitchen is fully equipped to handle everything from sandwiches for a picnic to a gourmet meal of your own devising. Each cottage has new stainless steel appliances and an outdoor gas BBQ.

Cottages comfortably accommodate 2 people with a large downstairs master bedroom. Extra guests can be accommodated in the upstairs loft with a double and single bed. One cottage is larger and suited to 4-6 guests. Each room comes supplied with all the comforts you could want to fully relax in this setting – thick, fluffy bathrobes, heated mattress pads and cozy doonas. Watching the dawn rise over the valley from the warmth of your bed is one of the great pleasures of staying with us!

Central to the spacious bathroom is an oversized spa bath that we hope will encourage our guests to unwind and enjoy their time at Bombah Point.

We are a self catering retreat and have provided each cottage with all the tools and supplies necessary to create delicious meals. We have a limited quantity of kitchen “basics” that can be purchased and special kitchen equipment can usually be provided on request.

We offer guests the opportunity to pre-order a Breakfast Basket, Picnic Hamper, BBQ Dinner Pack or Gourmet Dinner Pack from our menu.

Guests looking for a novel to read by the fire or a wildlife guidebook to identify the bird outside their bedroom need go no further than our central reception building. There is a comprehensive reading library of fiction and reference books and information on activities available in the local area. In addition, there is a collection of DVDs and CDs that are available for guests to borrow.

Built in a style similar to the cottages, the reception and games room buildings are a flexible space that houses a pool, billiards table, TV and DVD as well as a large kitchen, lounge and eating area. The space is ideal for a group meal, a congregating space, mini conferences and special events.

The Area

Less than 3 hours drive from Sydney, the Myall Lakes region feels like a magical escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Thousands of hectares of unspoilt National Park and State Forest provide the perfect environment for some of Australia’s most diverse and abundant wildlife to flourish - visitors to the area are likely to see everything from sea eagles, pelicans and egrets to wallabies, kangaroos, bandicoots, goannas and even the occasional koala. The area also hosts one of Australia’s largest and most interesting coastal lake systems as well as protected waterways, wetlands and more than 40 kilometres of spectacular unbroken beaches.

Of the region’s lakes, Myall Lake, Wallis Lake, and Smiths Lake are the largest and cover more than 10,000 hectares and were created between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago when sea levels rose and flooded much of the low lying coastal land. The surrounding Melaleuca trees (commonly known as “tea trees” and famous for their oil) give the lakes their "tea" colouration.

Myall Lakes National Park, which borders the Bombah Point Eco Cottages property on three sides, includes the largest and oldest sand dune system in New South Wales. The hind dunes were formed before the last Ice Age and now huge trees grow in their mineral-rich sand. There are numerous Aboriginal sites hidden in the dunes and visitors can find themselves wandering through expansive areas of stone tools, axe heads, bones and shell deposits that were hidden for thousands of years and only recently revealed by shifting sands. These sites are heralded as some of the most significant and extensive sites in coastal NSW.

A short drive north is Seal Rocks where whales and dolphins can be found frolicking in the surf and visitors marvel at the spectacularly beautiful lighthouse built in 1875 and officially known as Sugarloaf Point Lighthouse which overlooks an unspoilt beach and the group of offshore rocky outcrops which give the area its name.

Port Stephens, the picturesque inlet that provides water views for Nelson Bay, Tea Gardens, and Hawks Nest is also quite well known for its marine visitors, particularly the seasonal whales. It also has the largest permanent population of dolphins on the east coast, more than 200, offering visitors a 99% chance of seeing them on a ferry trip to the Port.

The region also includes Booti Booti National Park, Wallingat National Park, and Tomaree National Park as well as several additional designated nature reserves.

From our Guestbook: "Feel totally recharged as per usual when we stay here, this is the 6th time here and love the serenity and feeling of being right in nature ... I very much look forward to our next family visit here."

"Everything was sensational from the comfortable cottage, exciting wildlife and tasty herbs and vegetables. 5 star tranquility and choice of facilities."

 Discover Australian coastal bushland in private luxury only 2.5 hours north of Sydney. Surrounded by the Myall Lakes National Park with its 40km of beaches, rolling sand dunes, wetlands and stunning lakes system.
