The Retreat at Forrest Beach is a former convent situated right on the sand of Forrest Beach.


It offers amazing views of the beach and the surrounding islands during the day and the lack of city light pollution allows for incredible views of the stars at night.

All rooms contain Air Conditioners and Ceiling fans to ensure a comfortable nights sleep and the building is designed for great air flow to make the most of the cool ocean breezes.

Ample off-street parking is provided with room for boats / trailers / RV's surrounded by lush tropical gardens perfect for relaxing in on the street-front side of the Retreat.

The Retreat is a 1 minute walk away from the local pub / restaurant where you can enjoy a great meal or a cold drink and 5 minutes walk away from all the local stores which include a Fish and Chip shop, Supermarket, Medical Clinic as well as a few other specialty businesses.

The waters off Forrest Beach offer world class fishing with 2 boat ramps available and a short trip over the water gives access to 4 different islands to explore, each with their own unique qualities such as Yanks Jetty on Orpheus Island or the beautiful waterfalls of Hinchinbrook Island.

During the hotter months a stinger net is put up on Forrest Beach so visitors can swim safely without threat of marine stingers or crocodiles, the net is patrolled by surf lifesavers on weekends and school holidays.

The Retreat is also a 20 minute journey from other great spots to visit such as Dungeness and Lucinda which also offer great fishing and more places to launch a boat.

Its the perfect place for a great family holiday, a quiet weekend away or a fishing trip with your mates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doctor Ordered This property was exactly what we were looking for. A place that could accommodate the 10 of us blokes when we weren’t fishing. Big lounge room with pool table and big couches and tv. Nice undercover BBQ area at the front. Right on the beach, close to the ramps, steps from the pub. Nice owners, very friendly and helpful. All in all, a solid choice for a getaway. Thoroughly enjoyed.
