Kanturk is an ideal location to relax if taking part in any of the major events on the peninsula; yachting races, triathlons, cycling events or golfing competitions just to name a few.

Or if you want to play a round at some of the world class golf courses, start the day with a warm up round at Kanturk then head out ready to take on the world.

If hitting the surf beaches is more your scene, wake up refreshed then head down the coast to Point Leo (30 minutes away) or down the Peninsula Link freeway to Gunnamatta, Portsea, Sorrento (50 minutes away) or stop at any of the many beaches along the way.

Fishing and boating activities abound at nearby Tooradin, Warneet, Yaringa Boat Harbour and Hastings all about 15 minutes away.

Awesome Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband I got married at Kanturk in December. We rented all three properties as we had our family stay at the Retreat also. It rained all weekend but it was so much fun. Sally was awesome and her property was the perfect place to "tie the knot". Highly recommend a getaway at Kanturk Country Retreat if you want to forget about the rest of the world. We look forward to returning for our anniversary.

Beautiful & private

Had a great night away from the hustle. Superb location. The pool house is fantastic and the little touches from Sally made it a very special night away with my partner.

A good place to relax and enjoy

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a serene place, where we could be ourselves and enjoy a weekend get together; we found this and more at Kanturk. The property was smart and had all the facilities to cater for our needs during the long weekend, including sports facilities that kept us entertained. The rooms are large and were adequate for our big group. The host, Sally was amazing and very helpful from the get go to the very end. I will definitely consider Kanturk for the next group outing.

Brilliant property with very accommodating hosts!

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic venue for any group activity. Huge property, perfectly appointed cottages with everything you might need. A luxurious pool and tennis court for those looking for a bit more of a relaxed stay. And, most importantly, hosts that make sure nothing is too hard for them - even a large group of loud guys! Big thank you to Sally for a brilliant stay.

A Christmas Party to remember!!

  • 5 of 5

This idyllic property was our home away from home for our staff christmas party and what a night we had!! Sally was a warm and welcoming host who made our stay just superb. She even put up with some particularly dodgy karaoke from us, that's going the extra mile for sure ;-)

The accomodation and facilities were so comfortable and clean and you wanted for nothing. Everything was clean and comfy and what a setting to wake up in the next day, just beautiful

We will definitely return....with some ear muffs for Sally :-D

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely, peaceful stay at Kookaburra very recently. The accommodation has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing, comfortable stay.

Sally and Gary are very accommodating and nothing is too much trouble for them.
