Welcome to the Dacre Cottage Website. We hope to give you information, history and contacts for Dacre Cottage.


Long Bay, Okura and the marine reserve is under threat from further increased, intensive land development. Your help is urgently required.

The Long Bay Okura Great Park Society is a community group set up over 15 years ago to preserve the parks, coastline and marine reserve in this area.

After two major Environmental Court cases costing $500,000, the society sought and obtained binding rulings that limited the impact of development along the Long Bay-Okura coastline.

This helped protect our unique coastline and marine reserve.

This is now under threat..........................

Our aim is to preserve this wonderful building and surrounding area for generations to come.

Dacre Cottage and its grounds are available for use as not just a picnic spot, but for overnight camping.  The cost is $25 per night for a group, maximum number of twelve. Facilities include use of cottage, tent sites, water, long drop loos, and BBQ.
