Perched in a secluded spot on the Bithry Inlet, close to the mouth of Lake Wapengo in Mimosa Rocks National Park, is the historic Myer House, about 400 kilometres south of Sydney. It was built for Kenneth Myer (of the Myer retail family) by renowned architect Sir Ron Grounds, who also designed the National Gallery of Victoria and the Melbourne Arts Centre. The house was donated to the NSW National Parks & Wildlife Service in 1976.

The restored historic building has four bedrooms and can accommodate a maximum of 12 people. There are two bathrooms, one with bath and a bidet, and there’s also an outside shower, barbecue, enclosed verandah and a tennis court.

You can tumble out of bed and head straight to the beach for breakfast, go for a walk in the eucalypt plantation or follow the walking track to a secluded beach at Moon Bay. The area is a refuge for koalas, wallabies, ringtail possums, long-nosed potoroo and the bar-tailed godwit, a migratory bird that stops briefly in summer during its migration from Alaska to New Zealand.

Here, you can go bushwalking, snorkelling, birdwatching, fishing and surfing. It’s customary to end the day with fresh Wapengo oysters while toasting the sunset from the beach with a glass of bubbles.

The house is in a remote location, so it’s a good idea to bring supplies for your entire stay. It is very popular and bookings are available from June 2021.
