Ballara Art & Lifestyle Retreat

Price from $250


Ballara is more than just a beautiful 100 year old stone home with large rooms, a grand hallway, parlour and spectacular views to the nearby ocean. Ballara is high-end vintage accommodation providing arts-based holiday packages, tailor-made to suit couples (or up to six guests) perfectly.

Located at Warooka on the Yorke Peninsula, Ballara is approximately 2.5hrs from Adelaide.

The large property includes a huge lawned area known as "Mrs. Baker's Backyard" complete with a barbecue shed and fire-pit. The semi-enclosed verandah opens onto the law; ideal for evenings of laughter and wine.

An art retreat package includes accommodation, meals and workshop options for up to six guests. Workshop ideas are endless - suggest your passion and we will aim to source the facilitator however local artists specializing in art lessons (oils, sketching etc), photography, yoga and a spa-style massage therapist are readily available. And because we're on Yorkes, of course we can facilitate surf lessons!

Ballara has three bedrooms (one queen, one double, and two singles), shared bathroom and second toilet. The kitchen, sitting room and parlour/reading room are decorated with mostly original furniture, complete with vintage books and inspiration at every glance. The entire home is an art gallery.
