Great location
93% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
You're two minutes off the highway in your cosy airconditioned apartment and you're drawn to the comfort and timelessness of the four-poster bed! The kitchenette has a small fridge and the typical needs for drinks and light meals, while the bathroom sparkles and offers the usual personal amenities. There is a private patio/BBQ area and guests have access to the breathtaking 270 degree views from The Terrace. For groups of three or more there is additional space for sleeping and living.

The space
The entire apartment has recently been refurbished, painted and stocked with new linens, doonas, towels and kitchen gear.

We hope you'll enjoy the modern comforts with a country essence. In the kitchenette, there are cups, glasses, fridge, microwave, toaster, and kettle, as well as crockery, cutlery, and BBQ tools! On the patio are table and chairs and a small BBQ for your use. The free wifi access and smart TV with a built-in DVD player, can keep you connected and provides a modern context.

As a gentle reminder of the landscape around you, original oil paintings by a local artist are on display, they capture the country essence of the Brisbane Valley to tempt you back outside.

At the front of The Retreat, you are welcome to enjoy The Terrace which is over 2500 sqm of lawn with 270 degree views of the Brisbane Valley and strategically placed seats and settings to take in this amazing and ever-changing panorama. On the patio there is a delightful outdoor fireplace and lounge - the perfect spot for dinner for two... or three... or six!

An additional common area is available for groups of three or more guests and this area can sleep an extra four people in two sofa beds (please see photos for configuration). It has a larger kitchen and separate toilet, though the one bathroom is shared by the group. There is a lounge area with large TV and amazing views across The Terrace.

Where you’ll be

Toogoolawah, Queensland, Australia

The Retreat is about 400m from the Brisbane Valley Highway (over a hill!) and 800m from the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail. We are three minutes south of the wonderful township of Toogoolawah; five minutes from Ramblers parachuting centre; just under 8 minutes from the Watts Bridge Memorial Airfield; only twelve minutes north of Esk; and 15 minutes from Somerset Dam. So much to do!!
