Oaklane Retreat, in beautiful South Gippsland, is a stylish and romantic "Getaway" to unwind and rejuvenate. You are surrounded by lovely, extensive gardens in a peaceful country setting.

This charming holiday cottage is placed on a 14 acre property, on a no-through road, featuring total privacy, peace, relaxation and spacious lawns to play and have fun outdoors.

Guests are invited to explore and enjoy the park- like gardens and the abundant birds and their songs, or sample some organically grown fruit from the orchard.

Only a few minutes drive takes you to the town centre of Foster, where you find a great variety of retail outlets, services and facilities for all your shopping needs and much more.

Foster and surrounding villages invite you to wineries, art galleries, picnic spots, museums, Farmers Markets and community events. There is something delightful to discover for everyone.

Oaklane Retreat is also the perfect base for exploring the beautiful unspoilt beaches, lush rainforests and rolling hills of South Gippsland:

SPECTACULAR WILSONS PROMONTORY NATIONAL PARK provides the ultimate experience of nature in all its beauty and variety, from breathtaking beaches and outlooks to bushtracks of various lengths and degree of difficulty. It is a bushwalker's paradise, offering enjoyment for all age groups and levels of fitness.

Another superb National Park is the Tarra-Bulga NP, hidden in the Strzelecki Ranges, near Yarram. It features lush Fern Trees along cool gullies, giant Mountain Ash and ancient Myrtle Beech. Picnic spots offer a welcome rest and lookout for birds.

Only a 20 min. drive takes you to Waratah Bay and Sandy Point, where you can enjoy stunning beaches for walking or swimming, safe for families and also well known by keen surfers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful accommodation and environment A lovely stay at Oaklane Retreat. Anna and Albert were kind and welcoming. The accommodation was fine, with an unusually good array of cooking utensils. The location is a short distance out of Foster, giving the convenience of a nearby town but a sense of excape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! Anna and Albert were fantastic. This place was great and quiet and so convenient for us, as we had to be in Foster every day for a show. Thank you Anna for the Blueberries, they were so delicious. Will definitely be back. See you next year. Janie, Paul and Ian

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a lovely place A massive thanks must go to the owner of this place as she went an incredible distance to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. She went out of her way to pick us some blueberries (delicious) and upon our leaving she even gave us a souvenir she painted herself. We also enjoyed the birds and wildlife in the garden. We wish we had a cat like Liquorice, thank you for an amazing stay.
