About Us

Kangaroo Ridge Retreat features two contemporary luxury designed Bed and Breakfast cabins offering peace and quiet  set in the mountains overlooking the Yarra Valley.

The property was originally used for grazing and was bought by Olga and John 15 years ago. They built the homestead out of bridge timbers and mudbricks before creating the perfect secluded luxury accommodation for couples.
 
The buildings were designed by renowned architect John Pizzey. They combine cedar, corrugated iron and mudbrick to create a uniquely modern Australian structure. The interiors reflect Olga and John’s travels throughout Asia with furniture from China and rugs from Afghanistan.

High above the mists of the Yarra Valley, Kangaroo Ridge  Retreat offers a secluded and tranquil environment to relax and enjoy the views of the mountains.

The 50 acre property is home to a rich variety of wild life who share the pastures with the horses.

The two contemporary, self - contained buildings reflect the best of Australian design and Asian style.

Relax in front of the cosy woodfired heater, enjoy a spa or  a BBQ hamper on the deck and a glass of wine as the sun goes down. Kangaroo Ridge Retreat is the perfect escape for two.
