Lyrebird Dell is a secluded two-bedroomed cottage located in South Durras, an exclusive village of only 100 houses, surrounded by Murramarang National Park. Wildlife abounds and you are only a five minute walk to the beach.

The space
Lyrebird Dell is a secluded and romantic two-bedroom cottage in the small village of South Durras, surrounded by Murramarang National Park. The house is all one level, with a garage and second bathroom underneath.

Look out the big north-east facing windows and chances are you'll spot kangaroos grazing in the garden or peeking curiously over the verandah. Wildlife abounds with possums, eastern grey kangaroos, swamp wallabies and common birdlife such as parrots, finches, honeyeaters and sea birds.

In winter (when the South Coast can be chilly!), you can stay warm in front of the open log fire. Additional electric heaters, lined curtains, electric blankets and goose-down doonas all ensure a comfortable stay.

We want you to enjoy your holiday, so we supply all linen, towels, doonas and pillows, as well as complimentary fine tea and coffee.

Where you’ll be

South Durras, New South Wales, Australia

Venture down to the beach (only five minutes walk away) and enjoy kilometres of quiet sandy beaches, rockpools, headlands and daily views of dolphins swimming in the bay.

Explore the chain of private beaches tucked away in the National Park just south of Durras, either by car or by bike (you're welcome to borrow the two mountain bikes that come with Lyrebird Dell).

Make your way over to Durras Lake (2 km away) and discover one of the most pristine inland waterways in NSW. You can hire canoes at very reasonable rates from Lakesea Park or, if you prefer, you're welcome to borrow our sit-on top kayaks or surf ski.

There are lots of great surf beaches around. The beach at South Durras is fairly quiet at the southern end (ideal for kids), but good surfing at the northern end.

If you love walking, Durras is a paradise. We supply you with maps, bushwalking books, a thermos and a water bottle -- all you have do is the walking!

For excursions, Batemans Bay is only 15-minutes drive away, with lots of shopping, seafood, movies and holiday activities.

I love our holiday cottage and I hope you do too.

We live in the Blue Mountains. I work as a publisher and author (I've written many "for Dummies" books, as well as bushwalking titles) and John is a musician and producer. We love being outdoors in the bush, playing music and being with our busy, noisy family.
