South Durras is an exclusive village of only 100 houses, surrounded by Murramurrang National Park and overlooking a string of white beaches, only 10 minutes north of Batemans Bay.

Lyrebird Dell is a gorgeous two-bedroomed cottage, three minutes' walk from Cookies surf beach and a two-minute drive to Durras Lake (perfect for fishing) . With linen supplied for all beds, an open log fire, king-size bed and beautiful furnishings, it's the perfect home away from home.

Snooze in the hammock, enjoy our wide selection of books, DVDS and CDs, surf the Internet using our free broadband Wi-Fi, cook up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen, take time over dinner on the screened verandah, gaze at the flames from the open log fire at night and fall into the luxurious king size bed when you're done.

We pride ourselves on all the extras that make your stay comfortable. Our rates include coffee, tea, firewood for the log fire, linen on all beds, big fluffy towels, shampoo, soap, free high-speed broadband internet and cleaning.

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.


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, Bateman's Bay is only 15 minutes drive away, with lots of shopping, seafood, movies and holiday activities.


Lyrebird Dell has good access (six gradual steps down to the front verandah, then one step onto the verandah itself). The house is all one level, with a garage underneath.

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.

If you're able to stay midweek (any days other than Fri/Sat), then generous discounts apply.

Free internet!


Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great week away with dog We spent 5 days here with the dog. It is a perfect house and location if you want to get away from it all. The house was a great size for the 2 of us, was well appointed and felt secluded despite having neighbours. Although the nearest beach did not allow dogs, there was a fantastic dog beach just a few minutes drive away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stay My family & I stay often at holiday rental properties at Sth Durras. Will definitely be returning to this house again. Lovely open plan of the house, off the main road & particularly enjoyed the enclosed back verandah.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely quiet spot It was just right for us, although a bit chilly. The dog loved being by the fire.
