The Retreat is a beautifully renovated self contained 3 bedroom private house (2 Queen & 1 Double Bedrooms), that is located in a picturesque peaceful riverside rural setting adjacent to the Elliot River near Guthalungra, with access to river walks and fishing. For those with a boat there is a nearby tidal landing with access to creek fishing and nearby reefs offshore. The Retreat is 2 kilometers off the Bruce Highway, 2 hrs south of Townsville, 1 & 3/4 hrs north of Airlie Beach.

The space
The Retreat has a dog friendly, large fully fenced shady yard with beautiful views of the surrounding landscape and of Cape Upstart national park. The river is a short walk from the Retreat and a perfect spot to cast a fishing line, take the dogs for a walk and swim and as the river is clear and shallow it is safe for children to play in.

Guest access
River walks and fishing. Tidal creek landing for boat access to creek fishing and crabbing, nearby Cape Upstart and reefs located in the top of the Whitsundays.

Other things to note
The Retreat has all the facilities required by the fishing enthusiast with an outdoor filleting table with water, lighting and power. Boat wash down facilities and a gas crab cooker. A guest information booklet is provided which outlines points of interest along the river.

I am married to John and together we live at and manage the Korringal Station property. John grew up on this property and 2 years ago we decided to leave our high paying stressful jobs and make our living on the property. We have worked hard and now have forestry and mango trees, a small herd of cattle, a productive fruit and vegetable garden and our own chickens. We have been helped along the way by many visitors young and old and I am in the process of putting together a property collarge with over 500 photos. There is still much to do but we do take the time out to enjoy our dogs, walks, fishing, crabbing and our visitors. Happy hour on the veranda is a must at the end of the day to have a cold drink, a chat, play with the dogs and enjoy the view.
