Your hosts - Barb & Kerry Kehoe
Barb and Kerry purchased the 58 ha beef grazing property in 1989. They saw an opportunity to share their private piece of paradise with others and built the Retreat in 1998. On the cleared section of the property they continue to breed Droughtmaster cattle.
They are both Cairns locals (although Kerry was born in Atherton) and their 6 children were born and raised in Cairns.
Kerry’s Grandmother Maude Kehoe was the licensee of the Lake Eacham Hotel (Yungaburra Pub) for 60 years and his Grandfather Jack Kehoe was the first Station Master of the Yungaburra Railway Station.
Kerry and Barb are available to give advice on suitable tours and day trips, and are only too happy to assist with your bookings and enquiries.
They take pride in providing an informal, relaxed environment and friendly service and enjoy meeting and welcoming their guests to their unique piece of paradise.
We will ensure that your stay with us will be an experience that you will treasure.
