Writing Retreats

Longing for uninterrupted writing time?  Too many distractions at home?

Can’t find a peaceful space in which to write, edit, polish your novel, short story, article, PhD chapter or business plan?   If only you could escape to your very own island for some peace and quiet I hear you say.  Well now you can!

Stay in my island cottage for a weekend. Coochiemudlo Island is 8 minutes by ferry from the great Australian city of Brisbane. Ferry ($5 cash each way) departs Victoria Point Jetty every half hour. Parking at Victoria Point is free.

Coochiemudlo Island is a secret island off the coast of Brisbane with beaches on three sides, a walking track through Ramsar listed wetlands, a licensed cafe with Merlo coffee and a 1970s holiday hamlet feel. Turn your phone off and no one will know you are here. Get lost in your writing for the first time in a long time. Breakfast, lunch and dinner provided.

Free wifi.   Or, if you prefer, totally unplug to remove all distraction – try my mint green 1967 Hermes 3000 typewriter. Think Sylvia Plath. Think the Bell Jar. Paper supplied.

Who’s it for?
