Depot Beach is described by Lonely Planet as one of the top 10 beaches in Australia, recognising its white sands, gentle waves, national park location, rainforest setting and impressive coastal views. Depot Beach is a small community of only 50 homes on a peninsula surrounded by the sea on three sides, so it enjoys warm summers and mild winters.
Depot Beach House is a two storey elevated beach house designed for the special holiday experience or romantic getaway. With glorious northerly beach views of Depot and Pebbly Beaches, direct access to the beach is an easy 2 minute stroll through the grey gum and cycad forest opposite the house.
Only 3 hours from Sydney and two hours from Canberra, the security-coded access means that there is no need to pick up keys prior to arrival. The short drive from the Princes Highway is picturesque and the perfect prelude to the coastal escarpment views as you approach the beach.
With 3 large bedrooms (2 x queen and 1 x double bunk), two bathrooms, large sundrenched balcony and large undercover rear deck with gourmet BBQ, the beach house offers first class accommodation for up to 6 guests. The four car garage includes amenities such as table tennis and darts and houses a range of canoes and kayaks available for guest use on Durras Lake. An extensive range of paperbacks and over 500 DVD movies are available. For those who want to stay connected, free wireless internet is available.
Located in the heart of the Murramarang National Park, the beach house is directly opposite the beach and a short walk to North Durras and Pebbly Beach and Durras Lake. It is a great location no matter the time of year. All year round great hiking, kayaking, snorkelling, swimming and fishing is available. In winter the annual whale migration and many South Coast festivals, markets and wineries are great attractions.
In one of the most pristine national parks on the NSW coast, Depot Beach is a photographers' and animal enthusiasts' delight. Be entertained by the birds that visit the balcony each day or watch the playful kangaroos and their joeys feed on the front lawn. Dolphins cruise the beaches and the headland is a great whale viewing spot during the annual winter migration.
Depot Beach is a calm family-friendly beach and the rock shelf around the headland provides great snorkelling and fishing. The walk over the headland to North Durras Beach and the lake is spectacular and complimented by the great coffee available at the Durras Cafe and General Store.
The calming effect of the Depot Beach environment is intoxicating. However, whatever the season or weather, there are a range of activities, including numerous coastal walks, available for those wanting to venture further afield. At Batemans Bay, browse through the shopping arcades or the many great waterfront restaurants. Local farmers' markets together with the craft shops in Mogo provide hours of fun and don't forget to visit the famous Mogo Zoo. For the golf enthusiast, great courses exist in Mollymook and Batemans Bay. Local wineries offer superb food to complement their annual vintages which are showcased at the Shoalhaven Wine Festival held each June long weekend.
