BlueSky Retreat, we are passionate about where we live and love sharing our property with those who come to stay.
My husband Ron and I decided to purchase a country property for our family weekend retreats more than 20 years ago. We wanted a spot that was away from the stresses of everyday life where we could just enjoy the treed environment with our children.
After searching for a quite a while we found a 100 acres treed property on a high spot of the Darling Scarp that was solar powdered, water tanks and a great view. Needless to say this is now called Blue Sky Retreat.
Our weekend property has turned into our permanent home, with a new house, a vineyard, olives, 30 fruit trees, vegetable garden and our family of alpacas, goat, sheep, chickens, turkeys and TJ the dog, our continual companion.
The original house on the property has been renovated as short term stay accommodation; Blue Sky Cottage.
We are passionate about where we live, love sharing our property with our guests and greatly enjoy sharing feeding the animals with guests of all ages. Although, I must admit it is a great delight seeing the children interact with our animals.
We are environmentally conscious and are developing a frog pond area and nature walk on the property which we would also like to share with you. We are keen gardeners, well I am, and Ron helps me continually. We are also fortunate enough to be situated amongst beautiful undulating country side covered with forestry and forestry tracks. These tracks are great for walks you can often see Kangaroos, Emus, wildflowers (in season). For bike rides these tracks range from easy to challenging! If you like bike riding make sure you bring your bikes with you.
We would love you to join us at BlueSky, to feed the animals, go for walks or bike rides, sit in the garden pergola, look at the views and visit our local towns. Look forward to seeing you soon at BlueSky Retreat.
