Legasea cabin is an ideal place to stay for those who are looking for a city escape and getting back to nature. There are many native birds and animals who visit the cabin/yard including parrots, wrens, kangaroos, wallabies, bandicoots, possums and goannas. Due to some dogs chasing the resident kangaroos, we are sorry that we can no longer allow pets.
While there is limited mobile phone reception at Depot Beach, there is a working pay phone close by or it is a short distance up the road for some reception. Please note there is no wi-fi / foxtel connection at the cabin. Sometimes it's nice to have a break from technology too! It is also good to know that the closest 'corner shop/cafe', is a short 2 minute drive away.
Depot Beach is approximately a two and a half hour drive from Canberra and about a four hour drive from Sydney.
