The Retreat is in a unique location, backing directly onto the largest sand dunes in the Southern Hemisphere.
Well off the main road, we are well hidden and offer a safe environment and peaceful setting for all guests. Bring the push bikes, cricket sets and football as there is plenty of grassy areas to have a play.
Gather around the BBQ area for meals and have a camp fire. In the evenings enjoy the stars and toast marshmallows. Bring a torch and go possum spotting at night or go for a night walk out to the dunes.
Relax around the pool during the day on a sunbed or better still get in and have a splash. Our pool has a graduating floor which makes it ideal for the little kids.
Next to the swimming pool is our games room which has a pool tables, fuse ball and table tennis. This is a great area to relax and have some laughs and there is also a TV so you will not miss any special events or sports on the TV.
