Beckworth Retreat provides the ideal self-contained accommodation in Clunes, Victoria with plenty to do or not do.....  Wake up to the magpies singing outside of your window and go to sleep to the peaceful sound of the frogs, kookaburras or cockatoos calling from the creek.

Ahh...the serenity!


Spend your next holiday either totally relaxing in the peace of the garden and taking in the breathtaking scenery, walk along the Beckworth Creek looking for gold or simply watch the local eagle family. There are plenty of other birds with plenty of character and on the protected list - Black Cockatoos, Blackfaced Cuckoo-Shrike.
