Around an hour from Adelaide on the stunning Fleurieu Peninsula an island oasis awaits. The Retreat has an open friendly atmosphere, at the forest's edge opposite the Murray River. In winter, enjoy the blaze of the combustion heater. In summer, get out on the river, enjoy the many water activities available. Explore the forest or catch a Coorong cruise.

Be tempted!

The Retreat is located on the northern side of Karinga Park adjacent but separate to the Homestead. The large expanse of windows brings the outdoors inside.

It faces towards the Murray River with a backdrop of old forest.

There are 3 stylishly appointed bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, modern kitchen with dishwasher and spacious open plan family/dine/living area, big flat screen TV. It has reverse cycle air conditioning, gas heater and combustion heater.


Karinga Park is well located to explore the stunning Fleurieu Region:

• Goolwa Beach is a wonderfully wide beach and 4WDs are allowed. Learn to surf. Try your hand at cockling, it’s loads of fun – ask us for tips, bag limits, size requirements and season dates.

• Explore the Goolwa Channel by kayak – can be hired at the Marina Office.

• Only a short drive from the Lodge is the Murray Mouth. You can see where the might Murray meets the ocean from Sugars Beach. It is a quiet, sheltered beach, great for children, and you don’t have to leave the island to get to it.

Take your fishing rods for a spot of beach fishing – the kids will love it.

• Nearby, is the Mundoo Channel settlement - buy the catch of the day from the locals (seasonal).

• Launch your boat from Mundoo and enjoy the spectacular Coorong. No boat, no worries – phone Brenton at Canoe the Coorong for an amazing insight to our World Heritage area. Now the water levels have returned, the Coorong has never been better!

• A Spirit of the Coorong Cruise comes highly recommended. Our guests receive 10% on Coorong Cruises (discounted tickets excluded).

* Enjoy the River 1km via our forest walk

* Boat ramps within 2kms

* Sample fab boutique beers at the Steam Exchange Brewery, Goolwa Wharf

* Boat hire at the Marina

* Kayak the Goolwa Channel phone the Marina

* Historic Corio Hotel - book for Saturday dinner

Only minutes from the River Port of Goolwa; for those who love the finer things in life, the South Coast and Fleurieu Peninsula provide a relaxing opportunity to browse old-world antique and craft markets. Nearby, wine regions of Currency Creek and Langhorne Creek are a must for connoisseurs. We are at the gateway to the distinctive landscape of The Coorong, with an abundance of birdlife. Relax watching a variety of birds enjoying our gardens and forest. Feed the friendly magpies. Only a short drive away is the coastal resort town of Victor Harbor, home of Southern Right Whales and fairy penguins.

Amazing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our getaway at this cottage, had amazing scenery and just a beautiful place to relax and kick back for a weekend!

Had a nice chat with the owner as she gave us a tour around her homestead aswell, it was brilliant. Could not ask for anything more, everything went perfectly.

Thank you!

We loved having the forest on one side and the river on the other side. The proximity to Goolwa was excellent. We will be back.
