ClientBreakneck Gorge Retreat

Set on a striking elevation just outside Hepburn Springs, Oikos, named after the ancient Greek word for home, is an indulgent short-stay retreat. Oikos evokes the red centre of this great southern land - its dramatic, sculptural form both complementing and disappearing into the rugged precipice on which it stands. The retreat is subtle in scale yet rich in design, offering the best in-built architectural form and natural landscape setting.
