~Dare to Dream~
Kings Creek Retreat began with nothing more than a concept in Gloucester 20 years ago when we purchased our 1st tipi.
It was a weekend accommodation solution for our young family on 66 acres in Gloucester. Despite having no electricity or running water, it was an amazing time we shared with friends & family.
The original retreat was certainly primitive but inspired us to dream of greater things ...... Local development changed our valley as we yearned for a more secluded location. In December 2010 we discovered a rundown little lifestyle property in Krambach.
It was overgrown & had a Creek hidden by lantana & madeira vine but it had tall timbers & fertile soils.
We visualised tipis, gatherings, forest areas & felt the warm, welcoming energy that has been here since the Dream time. Our two boys, Bodhi & Cael, fell in love with it too so this little property called 'Dream Acres' (Dream Makers) became the beginning of a new life unfolding.
We have built a comfortable, uncomplicated space for people to connect with themselves, their creativity & each other.
We are dedicated upcyclers & have created an inspiring space where the elements of Nature are in a state of balance.
Even the most complicated guests manage to find calm & connection within their heart space.
It's time to Connect xo
