A sanctuary offering tranquillity and serenity ...
The fully self-contained home-from-home, Walkabout Retreat, is only twenty-seven kilometres from Brisbane CBD in Clear Mountain, a region that is home to many creatives, including painters, sculptors and jewellers.
As its name infers, Walkabout Retreat offers solitude seekers the unique opportunity to be at one with nature, waking up to early morning birdsong; throwing a line in from the banks of the billabong or lazily enjoying the sun's rays from the floating pontoon, surrounded by local fauna. Please note the billabong and pontoon is a 'shared' space with Bush Bungalow guests. Treat Walkabout Retreat's resident kookaburra with his favourite snack, when he comes to visit at dusk, before he settles in for the night in one of the tall Eucalypt trees.

As an optional activity extra: why not consider booking a private art workshop with your Airbnb hostess, Christa, and learn how to gild; draw with one of her hand-crafted Eucalyptus pens; or experiment with mixed media. Christa, of Christa's Art and Gilding is presently running an 'Artists in Residence, special 50% discount' on all workshops booked during your stay at Walkabout Retreat. See flyers above and below for four different workshops that are presently being run, with times, pricing and contact number for bookings.

Or perhaps this fabulous retreat's appeal is to 'play' solo and bring out your own inner artist! Whatever your desires, Walkabout Retreat's five-acre escarpment property is a peaceful leisurely getaway, offering visitors an opportunity to escape to nature, without travelling too far from the city.
