A perfect getaway for two special people.

Even though Rocky Hills Retreat is just 2 kilometers up a gravelly dirt driveway it feels like a million miles away. Once you pass through the Rocky Hills' stone gates the 250 acres of dry sclerophyll bush closes around you. The Retreat provides a safe platform from which to engage with nature, to watch the weather roll in, the wind bend the trees, the sun dancing on the sea, the birds going about their business as though you were not there, the biblical sunrises, the amazing gentle light in the valley at dusk and the stars looking as though they have been lowered to greet you - it is all there going on outside while you are embraced by the beautiful elements on the inside. The rhythm of the retreat starts with the ever changing glorious pre-dawn light, sit out on the morning deck to breath in its full depth. With breakfast provisions provided, you can enjoy our specially made muesli with King Island yogurt, fresh fruit or eggs and bacon if you wish. If it is cold you could put on the jackets, boots and gloves that are in the laundry and walk up to the art studio. There you will find lots to do - draw, paint, sculpt, knit, read, play. It is endless. Or simply do nothing - just sit. How you spend your day at the Retreat will no doubt be all about your mood - what takes your fancy, no where to be - nothing to do! How rare! There is a beautiful Huon Pine bath tub out on the evening deck it smells delightful and holds its warmth for a long time (we have not been out in less than an hour and a half). It takes about 30 minutes to fill, so start it early enough so no to miss the sunset - a glass of Louie and into the warm bath - it really is heaven. The owls and possums will keep you company. Rocky Hills Retreat's bed will be waiting for you - it is lush - layers of comfort surrounding you.
