About the property

Offering absolute waterfront luxury accommodation, Goolwa Spa & River Retreat provides a beautifully appointed two bedroom home set on 22 acres with superb river frontage in a rural setting at Torrumbarry near Echuca on the Murray River.

River levels are maintained by Torrumbarry Weir therefore water sports can be enjoyed all year round. This is a skiing, wake boarding and fishing paradise. There is a floating jetty to tie your boat up to or throw a fishing line in.

We offer a two bedroom house which is fully self contained, with outdoor spa, king sized bed in the main bedroom, two single beds which can be pushed together as a king bed, large bathroom and separate barbeque area. Our accommodation is fitted with Home Entertainment Unit, surround sound and LCD T.V's. There is also a Home Cinema with LED projector and 3 metre x 2 metre drop down screen. The interior is well cooled and heated with a coonara fireplace and a large deck. There is a large country style kitchen, separate dining area and lounge room, the perfect place for a secluded getaway to Echuca.

Enjoy breakfast in the surrounds of the Murray Forest, sit on the jetty or stroll along the river track. Goolwa Spa & River Retreat can be a family or friends getaway on the Murray River.

It is the perfect setting for a family or friends wishing to get away from the pressure of the city and want to spend some quality time together in a luxury rural setting away from it all.

Our Rates for the two bedroom house for 4 people:

• $320.00 per night until 01/04/18 then reducing to $290.00 per night from Sunday to Friday excluding public holidays.

Minimum stay - 2 nights, 3 nights on long weekends including Boxing Day weekend and New Year's Day weekend and 4 at Easter.

Fishing boat hire $40.00 for the first hour then $20.00 each hour after that. Boat licence not required. Please book before arrival.


Goolwa Spa & River Retreat is located approx 300 klm's from Melbourne's CBD off the Murray Valley Hwy.

We are only approx. 20 minute drive from Echuca so you can browse the Historic Port of Echuca and enjoy a ride on a paddlesteamer or play a game of golf at Rich River Golf Club.

Bring your own boat and do a trip to the Torrumbarry Weir or meander your way along the great Murray River up to the Deep Creek Marina. There is a boat ramp approx 500 metres from the property. Mooring 100 metres from accommodation. Why not book into Perricoota Station for lunch or dinner. The restaurant is a 5 minute boat trip from our jetty on the NSW side of the river

Interested in trying to catch the elusive Murray Cod and don't have your own boat, then we can arrange a local fishing guide to take you to the best spots (POA).

Our accommodation is not suitable for pets as we have stock and our own dogs.

I loved it! The owner was very friendly when she met us and showed us where we were staying. So quiet and peaceful it was like a little slice of paradise. Everything was clean and tidy. Perfect set up too! I'll definitely be back :))

Really enjoyed the atmosphere of the property. We all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. Walks along the river, easy access to boat ramp, 2 cod, a movie on the big screen and lots of time spent in the spa. Our family of 4 will return.

Perfect couples retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed at Goolwa Spa and River Retreat over Christmas and had a blissfully relaxing time. The cottage was tastefully decorated with everything we could possibly want during our stay provided, e.g. board games, DVDs, a barbeque, picnic tables, deck chairs, fishing gear, bikes and even a canoe on the property. I was blown away by how thoughtfully furnished this place was, and the level of detail put into it, ensuring everything we could possibly want and more was available to us at the property. We barely needed to leave the accommodation while staying here!

The property was extremely secluded and as close to the Murray River as you could hope for, with a pier perfect for fishing, swimming and relaxing. We never ran out of things to do, and found the whole experience relaxing and enjoyable. Overall, this was one of the best couples retreats we have ever been to and we will definitely be returning.

Thank you Greg and Vicki for a lovely stay!
