Nestled in a spotted gum & burrawang forest (6 acres with river frontage to the Bermagui River) & roughly 7 minutes out of town & beaches (4km on a well maintained dirt road), Moonrise caters for people looking for a bush retreat who enjoy waking to the dawn chorus of birdsong, the waves breaking from the surrounding beaches, bird watching, kayaking, bush walking & more.

The space

Catering for singles or couples (with a child) the studio has one bedroom, sofa bed in living room, bathroom, with a lounge/dining area and kitchenette. All rooms have spectacular views of the tidal river.

There is an abundance of bird species as well as wallabies, kangaroos, possums and the odd lace monitor (goanna) and echidna.

Guest access

Guests have access to walk around the property as well as the vegetable garden and are welcome to help themselves to the herbs and vegetables depending on what is in season.

Interaction with guests

Tom and I enjoy meeting guests and showing them around, as well as suggesting places of interest to them. We also respect your privacy.

Other things to note

For breakfast we have local free range eggs, artisan bread, seasonal fruit, honey, jam, as well as cereals, juice, fresh coffee and a selection of teas.

This is a great cottage and is wells set up for the stay. Although its not far from Bermagui to get there you go down a dirt road for a few klms and you are immediately into the bush and peace and quiet. The property is on the river and there is a path down to the mangroves with water to the edge at high tide. Lots of birdlife as well. Susan the host is very welcoming and well organised and there are breakfast provisions including eggs and milk. the hosts house is next door but you wouldnt know and we were left to enjoy the space for ourselves but when we needed anything she was accessible and very helpful. A joy was to watch sunrise over the water with red reflections and the birds singing. If you are after peace and quiet in a beautiful setting but being near Bermagui this is a good choice

What a beautiful part of the world! We loved everything about our stay at Moonrise. The cottage is beautifully decorated, simple, but with everything you need. Lovely bread, fruit, eggs, yoghurt and jam on arrival. We were kept warm at night by the electric blankets and loved the beautiful sunrise over the water. A coffee on the balcony with the birds was perfect. We would love to come stay again. A great getaway for couples lookfing for some quiet time, but close to the beaches and cafes in Town.

We loved this place. It's perfect for a couple and in a stunning location. Susan provided just the right mix of hospitality and privacy. We went for 1 night and stayed for 2 and hope to be back again soon for a longer stay.

A picturesque, secluded location, about 7 minutes drive from the town centre. Very nice for our short stay - we enjoyed an evening drink on the balcony overlooking the forest down to the river, slept comfortably and really liked the delicious breakfast provisions. The studio was clean, spacious and tastefully decorated.

A fantastic place for a quiet weekend getaway. Moonrise is well worth a trip to Bermagui!
