Respite Relief Services

Our dream was to create an accommodation option in country Victoria where families or individuals in need of respite could take a break, relax, and reset in a rural setting. Our vision became a reality with the establishment of Respite Relief Services and our property Retreat@91.


This 4.5 acre property is where everyone can enjoy a break in a tranquil and picturesque setting to provide an inclusive experience for everyone.

The property has been extensively renovated and refreshed to cater for groups of 8-10 people.

The 4-bedroom house is fully self-contained and is situated near the township of Ballan, 70km northwest of Melbourne.

The possibilities are endless. The studio has bathroom and kitchen facilities.

If wanting a change of scenery, the Ballan town centre is just 3km away. With a great choice of cafés and pubs, Ice Creamery, Farmers Market, Craft shops and Historical Buildings, this quaint town has plenty to explore.

The Studio is a separate area available for hire for small groups and is ideal for

  • Workshops
  • Planning
  • Team building sessions.
  • Cooking lessons
  • Art and craft
  • Enjoy the BBQ facilities and meals in the Alfresco area.
  • At night roast marshmallows while sitting around the communal firepit(wood supplied)
  • Children’s play area with climbing equipment and a sandpit.
  • Trampoline and pool open during the warmer months.
  • Relax in the well-established gardens with plenty of birdlife.
  • Play soccer or volleyball in the wide-open spaces available.
  • Complete a puzzle or enjoy some boardgames in front of the fire.
