Over the New Year’s break, we were able to soak up some rays and kick our feet up. Now that we’ve gotten a taste of the good life, why not keep the good times rolling with an escape to Reedy Creek Retreat.
Experience our region authentically and immerse yourself in a wonderland of nature, wildlife, and simple comforts. Perched above Mannum’s picturesque lagoons, this off-grid glamping accommodation is the perfect way to reconnect with nature – in style.
Glamping, aka. “glamorous camping” means you can save time packing, enjoy the luxury of proper accommodation, and beat the heat – leaving you more time to explore the property.
This exclusive location is humming with wildlife, with pelicans and black swans landing at “the point”, wombats burrowing, kangaroos bounding by, and hawks soaring in the sky. The best part? You’ve got a front seat to all the action.
To bask in natures delights with your family, spend a night in the “Sunflower”. The kiddies can switch off their devices and hang ten in the hammock while you cook up a storm on the BBQ (or watch your partner put in the hard yards from the comfort of the outdoor bar).
Otherwise, head inside the reverse cycle airconditioned glamping tent to cool off and test your competitive side with a board game.
Once you watch the sun set over the magnificent cliffs, crowd around the fire pit, and toast some marshmallows for some quality family time.
For a romantic couple’s retreat with your other half, “Haven” or “Burrow” will be your top pick. The two glamping tents stand alongside each other, so its popular for pairs of couples to coordinate their trips and explore the terrain together.
If you’d prefer to stay in, use the provided ingredients to fry up a classic big breakfast… including bacon, eggs, mushroom, tomatoes, local sourdough, and fresh orange juice.
Curated with romantic getaways in mind, the accommodation is complete with high quality linen, fluffy bathrobes, and local wine. Pop a bottle of bubbly, snack on a cheese platter and enjoy the outdoors together – we guarantee love will be in the air.
Once you’ve discovered Reedy Creek Retreat’s diverse landscape, lace up your shoes and explore the Mid Murray sights. For keen hikers, the stunning Mannum Waterfalls will only be a 5-minute drive away. The Mannum main street will also be on your doorstep, so live like a local and visit its iconic locations.
You could grab a bite at Café Mannum, pop up to the Mannum lookout for sweeping river views, or take the kids to the Mannum Skate Park – located at the local football oval.
Under regular circumstances, the Reedy Creek team offer a BBQ boat cruise experience in Mannum, where you can spend a day paddling down the Murray with a feast of local produce.
*Unfortunately this activity isn’t currently operating due to high flows, but keep an eye out for reopening dates in coming months.
You could also adventure out to Monarto Safari Park where there’s roaring fun for all ages, or Murray Bridge to walk along the historical trail, visiting our oldest standing building – the Round House.
So, take the chance to reconnect with nature, and rest your head at night with all the comforts of home. Add this experience to your itinerary below.
