Rock Lily is a sustainably managed 100-acre bush block property located in Brogo on the fringes of the Wadbilliga National Park. This remote and pristine wilderness has seen little interaction with post-European settlement humans.

We’re in the Bega Valley, part of the Sapphire Coast region in southern New South Wales.

Our bush retreat includes a 1-bedroom mud-brick cottage suited to couples wanting to get away from the rush of the city and a larger mud-brick cottage with room for 6 people whether that’s adventurers, a girls’ weekend away, or a family.

Both cottages are self-catering with breakfast hampers supplied by your hosts.

Cottages are dog-friendly, with fenced and gated yards.


The rock lily (also rock orchid) — Dendrobium speciosum — is native to the area and can be found on sheltered rock outcrops across the property. It flowers from August to October.

We are located on the unceded lands of the Djiringanj people of the Yuin nation, who believe that Gulaga mountain to our north is the heart of their culture and dreaming.

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which we live, and pay our respects to Elders past, present, and emerging. We acknowledge and respect their continuing culture and their contribution to this region’s life.

"Mountain Cottage at Rock Lily is a true delight. Fantastic views, very comfortable bed, spotlessly clean, and filled with so many thoughtful touches. We had a wonderfully relaxing time, loved the breakfast items provided, and even our dog was able to stay with us on this pet friendly property. Would definitely recommend and can't wait to get back someday soon! Thanks Steve, Alli and Craig for your hospitality."

Daria, Tasmania

"Out of all air bnb's I have stayed at, this one exceeded our expectations. Amazing hospitality, amenities and one of the most amazing views in Australia. Brogo Dam is down the road and has amazing bass fishing. The host also puts a couple of special little touches of the experience. We will definitely be visiting again. Hands down 5 out of 5."

Steven, NSW

"Just a perfect place to sit back and relax in nature. If you’re looking for a cute and cosy cottage with a great view that you can recharge in, then this is a must visit destination."

Ross, ACT

"This is one to not miss!! The pictures don’t do it justice to how incredible the view is and the house. All the hard work these guys have done to make it so welcoming is worth everything and more. For us the hosts and the small touches made it that more special! Can’t wait to come back with friends and family!!"

Hollee, NSW

"Comfortable cottage, fully equipped and a generous hamper. We were grateful for the host's care and attention and quick communication. Beautiful views and very restful. Nearby Brogo Dam is worth visiting."

Judy, ACT

"This would have to be one of the best places we have stayed so far in all our travels. We can’t praise enough the peaceful setting and so many environmentally sensitive thoughts and things to educate the public. Well done and look forward to returning."

Jeff, NSW

"Stephen, Alli and Craig are wonderful, caring hosts. It was so special to walk into a beautiful rustic, clean and welcoming little cottage. We were so impressed with the comfy bed beautifully made up, yummy breakfast and so many other little touches such as shampoos, goodies in the fridge, coffee pods and everything you might need. Loved the steep walks to the valley, the native animals and stunning bush scenery. Great hospitality. Thank you!"
