South Coast Accommodation, Weddings and Retreats

Bawley Bush Retreat and Cottages is a coastal, secluded, lakeside 4 star multi-purpose tourist facility on the beautiful mid NSW South Coast. It has all the self-catered function and accommodation facilities you could possibly need to celebrate a life event like a wedding or major birthday or hold a teaching retreat or convene a seminar. Or, if you just want to wind down with your lover over a romantic weekend or holiday with your family (and/or pet) then our stylish bush cottages, apartments or luxury caravan all offer perfect options.

"Paradise found!....We came as guests for a weekend wedding and found a peaceful lakeside hideaway with beautiful accommodation surrounded by majestic trees minutes from the best beaches ever. Throw in birds, a few kangaroos, goannas and wallabies. Simply fantastic. Thanks!"  McKenzie Family, Canberra.
