KiaOra Retreat

An iconic home with commanding views of the

Gloucester Valley

The Setting...

Kia Ora Lookout Retreat stands at the gateway to the Barrington Tops National Park and offers a relaxing, revitalizing stay for those wishing to escape the hustle and hassle of everyday life.


With its open fire, spacious living areas, modern kitchen and stunning salt water pool, the retreat will capture the heart and spirit of any visitor.

The Retreat

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.
