Go through the locked pole gate on left 100m before final descent to main Scandrett car park. Follow the road down past the Homestead, and park in the small temporary carpark. There is no room for boat-trailers in this small space. From this point, access to the bach is on foot only. 

Near the temporary carpark you will see three trolleys or wheelbarrows each chained and with a combination lock. Select the Moonlight Bach trolley - the combination number is the last four digits of the code you will be given to access the bach. 

The bach is sign posted “Moonlight Bach”. Please note: once through locked pole gate, the single lane road drops steeply down to the beach, and care is required. You will be driving through areas where public may be on foot so slow speeds are required at all times. Maximum speed of 10km/h.
