This one is just about as scenic as it gets. It's on the NSW Far South Coast a bit out of Narooma. No shops, phones, toilets or water just fantastic beaches and little bays just begging to be explored.

Swimming wise this spot is fantastic as the water is that beautiful turquoise you only find on the Far South Coast of NSW. The wonderful thing with Mystery Bay and Tilba is you are only a handful of K's from the Princes Highway, yet you feel that you are a million miles away from city life. The Primitive camping area is a little on the dear side though for a "primitive" area, but you can justify it simply because of the surroundings.

The history of Mystery Bay was that three men in a canoe left Bega heading north in the open ocean and weren't ever seen again. Several months later, their boat was found - no bodies, but very heavily blood stained timber. Hence the name of Mystery Bay.

This is perfect camping. Accolades of praise to the local council as the whole area is a delight. Things like showers and tables on the beach are really appreciated. Also the locals are a wonderful bunch.

There are no shops in this area at all. The beach is great for swimming and Mystery Bay is absolutely recommended!
