River's End Retreat

Welcome to
River's End Retreat

Get together and truly relax, refresh, regroup and reconnect...

Escape, enjoy and don't lift a finger - take a look

Magical group connection is a long time tradition here


Among the nearby sandhills are great mounds empty cockleshells - for this was a gathering place of the tribes, a place for meeting and feasting for thousands of years

About Us

Where We Are

River’s End Retreat is located in the historic town of Goolwa, South Australia – about an hour’s drive south of Adelaide … on the coast side of the Adelaide Hills and magnificent  McLaren Vale wine country.

The Retreat property offers spectacular views of Hindmarsh Island and the magnificent Murray River, and is perfectly accessible to many of the South Coast’s delicious restaurants, wineries and beaches.

What We Offer

  • River’s End is a beautifully transformed historic Retreat one hour’s drive from Adelaide, South Australia.
  • In addition to the 5 spacious guest rooms (each with en-suite) all facilities are for guests’ exclusive use.
  • Our fully hosted facility is ideal for discerning small groups of up to 10 adults – whether a residential conference, group occasion or to attend a special event.
  • We are happy to help you create a complete itinerary or simply assist with your meal arrangements during your stay.
  • Whilst we are predominantly a retreat for small group stays, we will have occasional events for couples to join.
