Orchard Keepers

Orchard Keepers is the charming name given to a historic Red Hill property that sits under the shade of a giant Sequoia tree nestled amongst beautiful established gardens. Surrounded by vineyards and orchards with stunning views to Western Port Bay, the property has been lovingly transformed by its keepers Poss and Mark Sampieri.

Green Olive at Red Hill

The olive trees on Sue and Greg O’Donoghue’s farm take three years to bear fruit, but when they do, one tree can provide up to 35 kilograms of olives. Similarly, patience and passion are key ingredients to bringing a big idea to life.

Presentation Family Centre

We want to tell you about an accommodation facility that’s not open to the general public because, well, this place embodies the basic community spirit that we want to celebrate and preserve on the Peninsula. Since opening in 1989, Presentation Family Centre in Balnarring has given accommodation and support to tens of thousands of people including victims of domestic violence, financially disadvantaged families, those suffering physical or mental ill health, and refugees.

Point Leo Retreat

City people are always rushing about from this to that and connecting more with electronics than each other, but even coastal life can sweep you up in the busy-ness of modern daily business. To retreat, rejuvenate, rebalance and reconnect to the essence of being present is the fuel stop we often need.

Striking and lucid, yet dreamlike imagery evokes strong memories of, yearnings for – or both – simple luxuries.
