Our unique eco-cottage with large Turkish-style bathroom is a true escape from city life. Surrounded by native gardens and bush-land, but only 3kms to the village of Rushworth, the secluded space is certain to relax the body and restore the soul.

The space
The guesthouse aka King Billy Retreat, is a renovated shearing shed although the interior design is more reflective of an intimate gallery with art-work and cosy furniture in every room.
The main kitchen and living area lead into a bedroom with queen-sized bed and large bathroom. The bedroom comfortably sleeps two people. The living area also leads out onto a lovely big north facing verandah decked out with comfy chairs and dining table for outdoor living.

Where you’ll be

Rushworth, Victoria, Australia

Our neighbors are trees, fields and wide open spaces but the small village of Rushworth is only 3kms away and has all basic needs covered including a supermarket, chemist, bakery, butcher, cafe, pubs and most importantly, ice-cream shop! The Waranga Basin is also a short distance away for folks who enjoy water sports. We are 2kms from a nine hole golf course and a short drive (10mins) to the historic gold rush area of Whroo where you can learn about the gold rush and spend time in Box-Ironbark National Parks.

Hi, my name is Louise and my husband is Les. We have a lifestyle of peace and tranquility. We are both artistically inclined and enjoy gardening, growing food and spending time in the natural environment. We have a gorgeous dog called Molly. We have both traveled to many exotic places and enjoy meeting people. We only speak English (that is the trouble with living in Australia) but we try hard to do sign language! Thanks and looking forward to hosting!
