Lovely balcony surrounded by trees and bushland giving your privacy. Big spa bath with plenty of room to relax in. Owners...

Stayed for two nights in this tranquil eco-lodge. Sitting on the verandah in the quiet bushy surrounds , seemed to be only birds as neighbors. Close to the beach and walks. Well appointed comfy cabins, with super friendly staff. Could stay on much longer.

My wife and I had 6 nights at a Eco Cottage over Easter. We had a great time, cottage was clean, had all the facilities we needed and certainly plan to return. The setting is tranquil but Wanderers Retreat is close enough to all facilities. I highly recommend!

Travelling for work doesn't always mean fun, but this trip was sensational. Usually stay in Raymond Terrace as I work in Williamtown, however I felt a little adventurous and found Wanderers Retreat. Lovely staff, amazing cabins to stay in with everything you need. Waking up for work and listening to the kookaburras outside is blissful and not something you get...

BBQ facilities every lodge. Lovely bush surrounds and if your lucky like we were you will even spot a koala in the trees. Lovely quiet location....
