Visit to Broulee and The Bower on the South Coast of New South Wales

There’s a quiet little seaside town down the South Coast of New South Wales that we thought you should know about and it’s called Broulee.

Broulee is the place for you if you want to:

  • Get away for a short stay or longer as it’s only 4hrs from Sydney or 2 and a half hours from Canberra
  • Love a seaside escape with plenty of room to relax
  • Enjoy bushwalking
  • Enjoy the water, surfing, fishing, swimming or sun baking
  • want to get in touch with nature and Australian wildlife
  • And have easy access to other jewels of the South Coast such as Batemans Bay and Moruya
  • Visit Mogo Zoo
Rainbow Lorikeets at your cabin
Get a visit from Rainbow Lorikeets, Rosellas, Kookaburras and a lot of other native birds.

So, we meandered on down during the week for a sneaky 2-night stay to gather more photos for our Australian photography project.

The Bower at Broulee

On this occasion, we were in for something special in the way of a place to stay.

Just like we always do we headed to one of our favourite booking sites and looked for a bargain, finding a mid-week special for a place called the Bower at Broulee.

We won’t get too much into it as we like our photos to do the talking but if you want the feeling of being the only people around with all cabins spread well apart in the bushland.

If you’re up for a luxury spa bath, wood fireplace in a large spacious luxury cabin The Bower at Broulee is the place for you.

Relax in luxury while taking the bush and wildlife outside of your cabin.

Not only do you get all that and fresh bacon and eggs to cook for breakfast but The Bower provides you with bird feed and a spotlight for checking out the various nocturnal creatures scrambling around late at night. (sugar gliders, possums, kangaroos and more).

The only time you’ll see the staff is checking in or checking out, you won’t be bothered but they’re there for any of your needs should you have any.

We cannot rate The Bower at Broulee highly enough. Really it is second to none when it comes to relaxation, luxury and serenity, but don’t take our word for it check out other visitors reviews here.
