Ballara Art & Lifestyle Retreat is much more than its beautifully restored, century-old stone homestead, located in the small agricultural town of Warooka on Southern Yorke Peninsula in South Australia. This majestic dwelling is ingrained with a prominent and inspiring history that continuously underpins the opportunity for guests to uniquely and creatively 'experience the past, explore the present and discover a future’.  


With a vision to establish Ballara as a ‘hub’ to encourage, inspire, nurture and celebrate creative expression, community involvement and initiatives, and cultural collaboration, Ballara currently features customised, art-focussed retreat experiences, one-day art workshops, children’s art classes during the school holidays, and a new Artist Residency program offering time and space to emerging, mid-career and established artists of all disciplines seeking a fresh environment to commence, continue or complete their projects.


The homestead and grounds are also available to book for events and as stand-alone accommodation.

Please take the time to explore the website for more information.
