DEPOT BEACH RETREAT MARCH 2023
We’ve been to the bush and now it’s time to head back to the coast and create some stunning art nude imagery in the surrounds of Depot Beach, just north of Bateman’s Bay on the NSW South Coast. We have secured the exclusive use of Depot Beach Cottages to ensure our stay is as private as possible with easy access to some stunning bays and beaches.
Surrounded by the pristine Murramarang National Park, our accommodation is only 50m from the beach and the view from the well appointed cottages stretches from Pebbly and Pretty Beach in the north and Durras mountain in the west. Rock platforms and hidden beaches are just around the corner.
Due to the nature of the accommodation, we are limited to only six participants with two models, along with Cam and Tim as your hosts and tutors BUT, we made sure there is room for our live in chef who will be preparing all of our meals for us during our stay.
