Mt Warning Retreat

We have a great love for Mt Warning, having been attracted here to camp and refresh many times while living in the city.

The opportunity to live and work in this magnificent environment, giving back to it and those who visit is a great privilege.

We are both “Bushies”, Barry having grown up in Rural Western NSW (Walgett, Bourke and Brewarrina) and Judith, the Far West Coast of South Australia. (Streaky Bay)

We look forward to Welcoming you to our Home at Mt Warning Retreat.



Mt Warning Retreat has an ongoing program to reduce our carbon footprint, while offering guests to the region a tranquil retreat in an eco friendly and sustainable environment.
