Walkabout Retreat Farmstay & Art Workshops in Clear Mountain


Posted 2023-08-22 by Elainefollow

Imagine … tranquillity, serenity, self-reflection and creativity … and all in one location, allowing you to bring out your inner artist!

Walkabout Retreat ticks all the boxes for an all-in-one sanctuary, offering guests the perfect creative hideaway, with its own snuggly nooks and crannies, all designed to inspire individuality, whether it's with art, writing, reading, photography or relaxing!

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 the Bush Bungalow day 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.

Amenities at Walkabout Retreat include:

  • Fully self-contained single level home, no stairs
  • Two bedrooms, one queen bed and two king singles

  • Three outdoor recreational areas, boasting fabulous views and even a private BBQ spot
  • Wi-fi
  • Air-conditioned/heated bedrooms
  • Laptop-friendly workspace
  • Washing machine, mini induction stove top, refrigerator, TV grill, air cooker and microwave
  • Apple TV

  • Towels, bed sheets, toiletries i.e. soap and loo paper
  • Free parking on premises - own vehicle or taxi drop-off
  • Self check-in
  • The terrain is steep and uneven, parental supervision, especially around the billabong, is essential!
  • *Bonus! Access can be arranged to the rumpus room with pool table, darts, table tennis, and a mini-workout gym - perfect to clear the creative cobwebs!

    Walkabout Retreat's rates are extremely affordable, offering a fully self-contained two bedroomed home, at only $90 per night, with a maximum of four guests. Your farmstay booking can be made, via Airbnb, here.

    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.

    So, what else is there to do when staying at Walkabout Retreat?

  • Albany Creek Village and Samford Village retail therapy is only ten minutes away by car;
  • Take-away deliveries: Domino's and Uber Eats;
  • Dine at Clear Mountain Lodge , a mere three minutes drive from the Retreat;
  • Westfield Chermside Shopping Mall is as close as 18kms.

  • 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.
