Photographers, writers, artists, friends and families, seekers of rest and relaxation need look no further!
Come and share our bit of paradise in the countryside and be re-invigorated. Share your breakfast with kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, cockatoos, rosellas, eagles and if you're very lucky you may see our terribly shy koala and wombat!
With reverse cycle heating/aircon, this 5*, self-contained, contemporary accommodation, set in 100 acres of spectacular, picturesque countryside, is a rural paradise.
Guests have access to the stunning countryside to walk, roam, photograph, picnic, read books in, or just chill out in.
WILD DUCK RETREAT is available for bookings from 2 nights and upwards, so rates are negotiable for longer bookings.
THE RETREAT has 2 x double bedrooms (with Eco linen and designer furnishings), a wonderful marble-tiled bathroom with under floor heating, a separate loo with sink, and a fantastic sitting room/dining room with limed-oak floors, and floor to ceiling windows with views out over the stunning Central Victorian countryside.
There are 3 large sofas in the sitting room, one folds out to make a comfy double bed - the accommodation therefore sleeps 6 with ease and is very much child friendly. Take the kids yabbying and then cook them on the BBQ for supper!
Pets are very welcome too, and love the walks along our Creek.
WILD DUCK RETREAT is furnished to the highest of standards. There is a stunning artisan-made rock-carved dining-table from local land in the BBQ area, seating for up to 6 in this fabulous rustic setting - be charmed and leave relax and refreshed.
THE RETREAT is a wonderful weekend "get-away", or a fabulous base from which to take a longer holiday and explore the Goldfields of Castlemaine and Maldon, the Farmer's markets of Lancefield, Heathcote and Kyneton, the local vineyards, cafes and providores of Heathcote and the galleries of nearby Bendigo.
Heathcote has yoga classes, a golf course, swimming pool, tennis court, two bakeries, a butcher, and local stores for last minute provisions.
Enjoy our local culture, fine wine, fabulous local food, and let Mother Nature nurture your souls, here at WILD DUCK RETREAT.
We have a very well equipped "library" listing all the local sights, sounds and highlights.
WILD DUCK RETREAT is only 1:30 from Melbourne CBD or Melbourne Airport, 40 minutes from Bendigo and Kyneton, and 15 minutes from Heathcote.
There is parking outside WILD DUCK RETREAT for 2 cars.
We can arrange a hire car for you from Melbourne Airport, or book you a local taxi to bring you out to THE RETREAT.
I look forward to welcoming you!
