Restaurants / Dining
There are no restaurants near Bombah Eco Cottages. The closest cafes are in Bulladelah - 15 minutes drive away. The one road in and out is unpaved with no street lights. I would not recommend going out for dinner if you are not confident driving in these conditions at night. Relax by your fire with a bottle of wine and your gourmet picks from the days adventures instead.
Bombah Point Eco Cottages does offer extras such as Hampers (organised prior to stay), Continental Breakfasts ($15/pp) and Full Breakfasts ($20/pp). Ask about these options when booking.
The only thing that could make this place complete with whipped cream and a cherry on top, would be a gourmet organic restaurant. But really, I think it would spoil the whole tone of the hideaway. Getting back to nature is fun, but takes away some comforts, rewarding you instead with some incredible highlights - like collecting & cooking extra fresh eggs with hand picked spinach, oregano and freshly squeezed orange juice. Waking up to this is something my soul has yearned for and it was so so happy I delved right into these farm-life activities.
Toiletries / Towels supplied
Yes, small toiletries and towels are supplied. Along with dishwashing liquid and firewood + fire starting supplies.
Wifi / Cell Service
There is full cell coverage for the Optus Network throughout the entire site. Wifi is available in the reception area only.
Closest Supermarket To Bombah Point Eco Cottages
There is a small IGA in Bulahdelah, 15 minutes away. You do have to pass this Supermarket on your way to the Cottages so it's a good pitt stop. For more variety, or specialty items you may want to visit a Woolworths or Coles in a major town on the way. Hawks Nest, Forster, Taree and Raymond Terrace are all good major stops, depending which direction you're coming from.
Bed Quality (you're only there to sleep right?)
Oh man.... This Queen-Sized bed was sooooo goooooood. From the fireplace filling the cabin with natural warmth, an electric blanket and the softest, fluffiest doona I've ever experienced, this sleep was near perfect! Plenty of spare blankets available. With the Cottages being so open, you can let the natural light from the moon, stars and sunrise flood in or close up the blinds and enjoy 'no alarm clock' time.
What's that pitter-patter?
Don't be alarmed by the (extra) friendly Brush Turkeys that call the area home. They like to welcome themselves to new guests. Their claws making an obvious sound as they creep around the balconies, making sure you know that they will happily eat up any food scraps you may have leftover. Remember, feeding them does encourage them, so if their naked red heads creep you out too much, just ignore them and give your scraps to the Chickens instead.
Stand Out Feature of Bombah Point Eco Cottages
I'm not very good at this... Again, I can't stick to just one!
In the common room, you will find a table displaying all the produce that is in season and ready for you to pick! It's a wonderful little display to get the ideas flowing and an understanding of the fresh produce before you head down to the Orchard. Fantastic for families who are looking to educate and have fun with the kids.
Again in the common area you will find a large pantry, with fridges and shelves stocked full of food and local produce which you can buy. It's fantastic for if you forget anything or stay longer than planned. Literally you will find everything here. From pasta to steaks, and ice creams to emergency chocolate, cheese and wine. Among the options are plenty of local produce items, such as jams, marmalades and honey! Support the locals and grab something fresh and pure.
Being 100% Eco-Friendly and Self sustainable takes know-how and hard work. A huge passion of Bombah Point Eco Cottages is passing on that knowledge to its guests. They show how easy all of these little practises are to implement into any home. Sharing how beneficial giving back to the cycle of life is through the free interaction with the orchard and Chicken pen. Inside the cottages themselves you'll find a binder. Grab a cuppa, lie down in your hammock and scroll through the pages. It's jam-packed with tonnes of info of the National Parklands of Bombah Point. How many animals will you spot? How many will you be able to name? What exciting dishes can you cook up from using the orchard and veggie patch? What day trips and activities are available? This binder has everything! A fantastic, easy implementation by the owners to make guests feel welcome, intrigued and filled with inspiration!

Negative Feature or Experience
Honestly, there is nothing I can fault this hideaway on.
Everything was above satisfactory! The friendly service and knowledge from the wonderful owners Duncan, Suzie & Gail brings passion to all aspects of the operation. Every little detail of the cottages was clearly attended to. The grounds are currently going through a bit of a revamp, but it was actually nice to see. Being near totally self-sustainable means a lot of continuous hard work. To see this aspect being focused on, brings light to how important it is to our everyday lives. But also how easy it is to implement some of these practises at home. Bringing a slice of education and inspiration to your stay.
We had a wonderful experience at Bombah Point Eco Cottages. It was the perfect winter hideaway. With the bush hugging us and the fireplace warming our hearts, this step back into nature was refreshing.
It rained on and off during our stay, making everything sparkle. The pitter-patter of rain on our cottage, as we cooked our fresh, organic meal is a sensory happy place, I will lock in my mind forever.
An afternoon bush walk through pristine Barrington Coast bushland, in search of Koalas, was a magical afternoon activity to reconnect my mind body and spirit. Though no Koalas were found, the walk did not disappoint. Refreshing, peaceful and solitary, the wind proving to me how much there is to see and hear if we just take the time for ourselves. If everybody gave themselves this quiet half an hour everyday to be alone with nothing but nature, I think the world would be a much happier place.
I cannot tell you how overly delightful it was to discover our electric blanket as we got ready for bed. A luxury I have only ever enjoyed on my trips to my grandmothers house growing up, an electric blanket was a luxurious cherry on top of a perfect night in.
Some may say I did the morning all wrong, but I couldn't have been happier. Setting my alarm for 6am, I chucked on my jumper and boots, last nights food scraps in hand, and toddled down to the chicken pen. The mist through the bush and dew on the veggie patch, it was a wonderful start to a winter's morning. Feeding the scraps to the already wide-awake Chickens, I exchanged them a few eggs. A scenario I don't have the privilege of acting out in my everyday life. Just like a sunrise in Greece or a pre-breakfast river cruise in Borneo, this morning was a treasure of my trip, I won't soon forget.
Though there are many cottages on the site, we felt we had our own private patch among the trees at all times. We never saw any other guests, nor heard any. We felt secluded but safe. Comfortable yet enriched. A reconnection with ourselves, our daily lives and our surroundings.
Day Trip Activities From Bombah Point Eco Cottages
There are 3 major day trips you can take from Bombah Point. You can either choose to catch a ferry at Bombah Point Ferry Terminal to cross Myall Lake or you can go the long way around via the Pacific Highway. Depending on which is more important - time or cost.
Dark Point Sand Dunes
This huge expanse of sand is incredible! Grab a boogie board, a picnic, a beach umbrella and have a blast here all day long! It is a bit of a hike to the water, but take your time and enjoy every step.
A 40 Minute trip north will bring you to Seal Rocks & Sugarloaf Point. Explore the incredible beaches, bushland and walking tracks that surround Sugarloaf Lighthouse! Again, best to pack a picnic, boogie board and beach umbrella, to take full advantage of the day out.
Seal Rocks is a fantastic spot for Whale Watching on the Barrington Coast during the Winter months. Read 10 Best Spots For Whale Watching In Forster
A 40 Minute drive south will bring you to Hawks Nest, probably the closest major town apart from Bulahdelah. Here you'll find pristine beaches, whale watching cruises and some great bushwalking tracks.
A small town across the water from Hawks Nest invites you in with it's delightful waterfront cafes, restaurants and lolly shop! A perfect stop for an afternoon walk, ice cream in hand! Quiet and quaint, don't underestimate this little gem.
