Ballara is more than just a beautiful century-old stone home with large rooms, grand hallway, parlour and spectacular views to the nearby ocean. Ballara is high-end vintage accommodation providing arts-based holiday packages, tailor-made to suit couples (or up to six guests) perfectly.

Located at Warooka on the Yorke Peninsula, Ballara is approximately 2.5hrs from Adelaide.

The large property includes a huge lawned area (Mrs. Baker's Backyard) complete with a barbecue shed and fire-pit. The semi-enclosed verandah opens onto the lawn; ideal for evening meals outdoors.

An art retreat package includes accommodation, meals and workshop options for up to six guests. Workshop ideas are endless - suggest your passion and we'll aim to please. Local artists specializing in visual art lessons (oils, sketching etc), photography, yoga and a spa-style massage are readily available. And of course, being Yorkes, we can facilitate surf lessons!

Ballara has three bedrooms (queen, double, and two singles), shared bathroom and second toilet. The kitchen, sitting room and parlour/reading room are beautiful spaces, complete with vintage books and inspiration at every glance.

Our website details our Artist Residency Program and we welcome all travelers, including those simply seeking an elegant getaway on the charming Yorke Peninsula.

The Yorke Peninsula is the traditional lands of the Narungga (Nharangga) people, who have lived on, and cared for, this country since the beginning of time. We work, live and travel on Nharannga Banggara [Country], and we take time away from those pursuits to acknowledge and pay our deep respects to the Nharangga Elders of the past and present. 

Today, it is essential that we continue to care for and protect our spectacular natural environment. Tread lightly and leave no trace. Learn more about responsible and respectful travel on Yorke Peninsula.
