Mystery Bay lookout is in the most southern part of Eurobodalla National Park not far from the hamlet of Mystery Bay.

The lookout offers fabulous scenic views out to the Pacific Ocean where you are likely to see whales during their spring migration.

The coastal Yuin People traditionally camped, fished and collected resources in this area, a tradition that continues into present. A number of middens and artefact scatters remain in Mystery Bay.

Mystery Bay is where the abandoned wreck of a small boat was discovered in mysterious circumstances in 1880. The boat had carried Lamont Young, a government geologist inspecting new goldfields on behalf the New South Wales Mines Department together with his assistant Max Schneider, and boat owner Thomas Towers, and two others from nearby Bermagui. None of the five men were ever seen again, and Mystery Bay was named after their unexplained disappearance.
