Frank and Jayne Deshon both grew up living in Western Queensland. Their love of the country and hospitality with large family gatherings gave them a desire to bring these experiences to people in cities whose lives have become too stressful. Six years ago they decided to establish something that they could offer to others as a chance to relax and unwind and discover all the South Burnett has to offer.

"Escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, put work behind you," is their offer. "Relax in our peaceful country retreat of 23 hectares of natural bushland and enjoy the ever-changing views from the Booie Range."

Their two self-contained luxury retreats in peaceful and private surroundings are the contemporary version of the iconic Australian 'tin sheds' that we see everywhere in the country, galvanised iron sheeting set in natural bushland. But these 'sheds' are insulated, air conditioned and have that added attraction of a wood-fuelled fire. Much more than 'just a bed' they offer "the total old fashioned country style hospitality and a change of pace in this busy modern world," the Deshons say.

The ideal base for bushwalks, this is a birdwatcher's haven, and wallabies feed close to the retreats.

deshons RETREAT promote and use only local produce. The South Burnett is fast emerging as an area with very diverse produce and together with South Burnett wineries it is the new food and wine destination. Cheese platters and dinner packs with all local produce and home-made items are available.
