While we are biased, we believe Kia Ora is one of the most beautiful parts of the Gloucester district. There are some lovely walks, drives and bike rides. It is worth noting that two of the very first tourist drives in NSW were around Kia Ora. The Retreat offers views over Gloucester, towards the Barringtons, and the mountainous country to the north.
There are mature establish trees to wander around. Grab a chair and relax, watch willy wag tails, blue wrens, kookaburras and honey eaters play.Book Now
The Retreat is a purpose built home that can accommodate up to ten people. Its five double bedrooms have their own individual bathrooms. The main living room was originally used as a restaurant, and is framed by vaulted wooden ceilings and open fire. The commercial grade kitchen adjoins a breakfast room, and is supplied by its very own kitchen garden in the formal courtyard.
The retreat is hooked up to the National Broadband Network.
The stunning views of the Gloucester Valley (there is a reason why Gloucester built a lookout at Kia Ora) are capped off by an in-ground pool.
The property is set on 30 acres of rolling hills, with a dam that is a favourite of local kangaroos and other fauna. Remember to bring carrots and you may entice the horses for a feed.
