Each Thursday when I get the Guardian newspaper I love to read the ‘Nature Watch’ column by Ray Collier. Our stay at the eco retreat was like an extended ‘reading’ of the ‘Nature Watch’ stories.

Sustainable Luxury Accommodation

Venus Bay Eco Retreat is an eco friendly, two-storey cottage nestled in protected bushland on the South Gippsland coast, away from suburban areas and tourist crowds. The cottage is a luxurious retreat for couples and sleeps a maximum of four guests. Reduced rates apply for three nights or longer; we recommend to book in advance as there is one cottage only available. Check vacancies and book online to secure your stay.


This unique accommodation is comfortable in all seasons with solar power, reverse cycle air conditioning, solar heated rainwater, certified organic products, quality furnishings and contemporary interiors. Picture windows give natural light and private bushland views. The sheltered deck is ideal for viewing wildlife, enjoying a barbeque or listening to the bird chorus.

You can walk or drive to nearby bird-rich wetlands at Anderson Inlet and sandy beaches at Cape Liptrap Coastal Park. Wilsons Promontory National Park is 60kms scenic drive along the coast. The retreat is within easy reach of rural villages, national and marine parks, boutique wineries and slow food restaurants showcasing the diverse farmers produce of the region.

Since opening in 2009 Venus Bay Eco Retreat has achieved Advanced Ecotourism and Climate Action certifications; this property of 5.6 hectares is managed with a Trust for Nature conservation covenant. Your visit helps conserve this beautiful coast and its unique wildlife.
