Self-contained accommodation is available on Mundoo Island Station.

'The Retreat', is private and secluded self-contained accommodation for up to 4 guests, situated across the Mundoo Barrage on our privately owned Mundoo Island.

This unique accommodation is best suited for those wishing to have a complete break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Access is limited during your stay, so ‘The Retreat’ will seem a world away from your daily life. Enjoy your time at your own pace – Mundoo Time, as we call it!

‘The Retreat’ is not connected to the power grid, it is completely off-grid. Power is gained from solar energy and stored in batteries, therefore there is a limited supply of power before you may need to start a generator.

An inverter is used so that 240v power is available. Wise use of power is encouraged to rely wholly on the solar power.

You can operate a laptop computer and charge mobile phones, cameras, tablets and electronic readers. Please do not bring items that draw a lot of power e.g: hair dryers.

Be as active or passive as you wish. Read a book from our library at ‘The Retreat’, you are welcome to bring kayaks (or you can hire from us), bicycles to cycle to Boundary Creek, launch your own boat (size limitations apply) from an unmade boat ramp adjacent 'The Retreat' for a cruise in the Coorong, bring your fishing gear to catch Coorong mullet, mulloway, salmon trout or go floundering, walk through the paddocks or along our Coorong beach, pack a picnic lunch hamper and enjoy the beautiful birdlife and fresh air ... or simply relax and enjoy watching the sun set into the Coorong. Avid birdwatchers should bring their binoculars, scopes and bird ID books.

‘The Retreat’ is not suitable for guests who cannot walk up and down stairs, as the sleeping accommodation and bathroom are downstairs and the lounge, kitchen and dining are upstairs, accessed via an external staircase.

Due to the power limitations, you will not find an air conditioner, microwave or hair dryer. If you are wishing to book 5 - star accommodation, please do not book with us! Our accommodation is more about the experience than 5 star creature comforts.
