Be at one with nature ...


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.
