About Us

Your Hosts: Gary & Lorna

It was always our dream to run an Airbnb and since Gary is a keen fisherman and an outstanding builder it was an easy decision to turn this three-acre native bushland in the Whitsundays into our vision. The hard part was building and bringing our ideas to fruition.

We wanted to combine both the Australian bush setting and beauty of the Whitsunday waters into accommodation that had a peaceful but luxe feel to it. Lorna wanted an edgy and contemporary feel to the buildings providing everything you would need to relax, re-charge and rejuvenate in.

We feel we have achieved this…….. we know you will agree with us.

About Woodwark Bay Retreat

Airlie Beach and the Whitsundays showcases the Iconic Whitehaven Beach, Hamilton Island, Daydream Island, The Great Barrier Reef and much more.

With its aqua blue waters and tree studded mountains it caters for fishing,  snorkelling, boating and water activities, along with native wildlife watching.

With the peaceful sounds of the breeze brushing through the long grasses and the shrieks, twitters and chirps of the birdlife we created Woodwark Bay Retreat for travellers and holiday makers to enjoy the tranquillity of the Australian bush while being only minutes from the lively activity of Airlie Beach’s boat tours, live bands and restaurants including “Northerlies” absolute waterfront bar and grill just 3 minutes drive from the bungalows.
