Pigeon House Mountain
The first explorers of Pigeon House were the local Aboriginals of the Walbanja and Wandandian tribes who called it Dithol or Did-Dell. It has great prominence to these tribes as its close proximity to one of their trading routes from the coast to the tablelands.
Magnificent panoramic views ranging from Nowra in the North to Mt. Dromaderry in the south can be seen after ascending to the summit of Pigeon House mountain.
The rewarding 3-4 hour return walk to the top of Pigeon House is a very popular tourist activity with some 10,000 people enjoying the walk annually.
The cottage is the closest accommodation option to the start of the walk and for this reason it is also a very popular option for those wishing to base their holiday around the popular walk.
As the area is surrounded by 5 National and State Parks, there are plenty of other bush walks in the local area to enjoy. A comprehension guide to these walks can be found in the cottage for your convenience.
It is also only 20 minutes from a horse riding facility that operates on weekends and school holidays.
For the golf enthusiast, two courses are available in nearby Mollymook. The 9 hole beachside course is for the casual golfer, with the championship Hilltop course available for those waiting for a challenge
Mogo Zoo is a comfortable 45 minutes south just past Batemans Bay. The zoo is home to the famous and rare white lions. Mogo itself is a quaint historical town with an extensive amount of craft and antique shops, restaurants and cafes.
