Great location to camp. Less than 10 mins to the beach and Torquay shops. Fire pit and provisions were very welcome as we arrived late at night.

Had the pleasure of camping here at Country Retreat with my 3 kids. Plenty of room for the kids to run around and explore. Property is in great location being close to Strawberry picking fields, skateparks, Torquay shops, OZ surf museum, chocolate factory and the start of the Great Ocean Road. Very well priced compared to staying at the local caravan parks with kids.
The location to camp is in the front yard but still very private.
The host Daryl and his dog Boomer are very friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend this place.

Awesome stay just outside of Torquay. Flat site with plenty of space (once you get past the trees at the entrance). Daryl was a great host giving us some info of the area and the kids loved ‘Bomber’ their dog.
Highly recommend.

We stayed for 2 nights. It was easy access into the property with plenty of shade. The gardens were lovely and well kept. The hosts were friendly and once we were settled didn’t see them but would have been easy to talk if needed. The sites are quite close to hosts residence. It was a lovely base to prop and explore the coastal areas. Loved being able to have a campfire. (Would be nice if fire pit for each site) as sharing with another camp is not always possible or welcomed. We had no issue though. We would stay again, no worries. Thank you. 🙂

This place was really well priced and an excellent location, only a few minutes to Bells Beach and Jan Juc.
Our campsite was private with water available and a fire pit as well. Daryl and his wife are awesome; friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend!
