On its way to the Orara River, the crystal clear waters of Friday Creek ripple through the Retreat’s one hundred acres of gentle green pastures. The surrounding valley is said to be one of the most beautiful in the world and while it’s just 15 minutes or so to the coastal city of Coffs Harbour, it feels like you are a million miles away.

Then at the end of each day, your cottage will await with thoughtful creature comforts, little luxuries and the feeling that time – while it does not quite stand still – moves at a much slower and nicer pace at Friday Creek. Welcome.
Inspired by that human urge to be ‘just a little bit different’, each of these cottages has its own personality. Naturally, there are shared elements of privacy, quiet, open fireplaces, fully equipped kitchens and majestic valley vistas … but individually, they’re all different.
From rustic Australiana to the mystique of Morocco; the intrigue of old Asian cultures to the indulgence of French flair; from Tribal touches to Retro fun … the beautifully interpreted charm and sophistication of far-flung times and places, gives Friday Creek Retreat a true point of difference.
