On 10 October 1880, five men left Bermagui for the Montreal Goldfield, in an eight-metre-long green boat. They were never seen again. The boat and some of their belongings were found on rocks, at what was locally known as Mutton Fish Point, 15km north of Montreal. No trace of the men, nor any clues as to their whereabouts were ever found. This bizarre incident is how Mystery Bay got its name and locals are still trying to unravel the clues over 130 years later…..
