Ballara Art & Lifestyle Retreat offers the perfect getaway for couples or small groups to relax, recharge and awaken inner creative genius!



A beautiful old stone home built in the early 1900s, Ballara can accommodate up to 6 adults in 3 rooms, with shared bathroom.

The house sits on 4 town blocks surrounded by art-inspired gardens. A large outdoor entertaining area has wonderful views across rural countryside down to the ocean only 5km away. 

Perfect for artistic inspiration and a self-rewarding glass of wine at the end of the day!

As a retreat there are many activities and therapies on offer. 

Professional artists and therapists run morning and afternoon sessions of approximately 2 - 3 hours each.


Currently, 2 or 3 night packages are available that can be tailored to accommodate you specifically;  as an artist, photographer, writer or yoga/wellbeing retreat. These packages are designed to provide a relaxing and inspiring experience.


Packages can be customised with your choice of activities, subject to the availability of tutors and therapists.

Workshop packages are all inclusive, ie. accommodation, meals and art/therapy sessions.

Ballara can also be utilised as accommodation or for events and private functions.

The huge, lawned "Mrs. Baker's Backyard" is equipped with a BBQ shed and fire pit.


Also incorporated in the house is the Ballara Gallery; a collection of local art and photography. A catalogue of items for sale is available. The gallery is open to the public by appointment ($5 per person) when the retreat is not being accommodated.
