Claerwen Retreat is located "high above the world" overlooking the Great Ocean Road, at Apollo Bay. It is the highest point in the area, an old aboriginal sacred site, with stunning ocean views. It offers a holiday experience with a difference that is focused on relaxation, self-discovery and personal growth. We support this process in an environment of peaceful solitude, healing nature and luxurious accommodation. Its guesthouse, two cottages and workshop space are nestled in 210 acres of park, rainforest and fern gullies. The beautiful beaches of Apollo Bay are a short ten minute drive away. It is a place where your spirit can rest. Choose to have a relaxing massage, yoga or art therapy session and once you have recovered your equilibrium, there are plenty of things to do. The Otway rainforests are waiting to be explored. Surf beaches like Moonlight Head and Johanna are close by and The Twelve Apostles are a year-round attraction. Claerwen is an ideal base for tours along Victoria's dramatic west coast..
