Pocket Retreats


Just 45 minutes from Brisbane, at the end of a winding tree-lined road through quite stunning terrain, you’ll find the idyllic destination known as Pocket Retreats.

This is a place to escape to when you want to detach from the city pace, close your laptop and simply reconnect with nature.

The Pine Mountain property is a working 120-acre cattle farm on the upper reaches of the Brisbane River where you can enjoy a spot of kayaking or fishing just a few paces from your bed for the night. There are two retreats to choose from, the larger boasting an impressive stylish full kitchen and living room opening out to a covered deck, and a separate bedroom and bathroom. The other option is more compact but equally as stylish, with a fire pit outside and a fantastic outlook over the river.

Guests can explore on foot and relax at some spectacular spots on the river banks, with the morning fog-lifting at certain times of the year to reveal vegetation on the opposite bank perfectly reflected in the mirror-like surface of the water. This area is also home to quite rare birdlife and birds of prey – nature photographers will be in their element.
