A Luxury Country Retreat

Lanarium Retreat is the perfect choice to immerse yourself in an authentic working cattle and grain property escape.

Welcome to Lanarium 

We would like to extend you an invitation to an experience that encompasses unconventional, remote, luxury, farm life, nature, renewable and space.

These elements have been crafted into a holiday destination that allows you to do as much or as little as you like, strip life back to basics, immerse yourself in the serenity that comes with having this much space to yourself and live off- grid in a home that started out life as something very different to what it is today.  

Your destination will be our families’ 7200 acre cropping and cattle farm in southern Queensland, Shirbar.  We like to refer to her as ‘Big Red’, as her soils are a mix of deep ochre hues that colour the landscape and hint at bygone eras.

Big Sky Dreaming

Embrace an

Outback Adventure

Discover a variety of hand-crafted activities created to highlight the best features of Shirbar. 

There is something for everyone so hop in the buggy, pack the thermos for smoko and head out to explore what is happening on farm, go wildlife spotting, stroll along the walking track that meanders through the native timber or try your hand at catching some fresh water yabbies. 

Unwind with drinks at sunset while overlooking the wheat and then marvel at the clear star studded outback night skies around the campfire. 

Riding in the Buggy...

Paul and Sally, what an incredible place you have created….we loved every minute….the food was divine, yabbies were great, riding out in the buggy to feel the country and see the cows was a highlight, thank you for creating and sharing Lanarium Retreat.

Outback Dream Adventure

This was everything we’d dreamed of for our outback adventure.  Thanks Paul and Sally for memories we’ll treasure.

Bygone Years

A great break from the noisy city.  The woolshed reminded us of bygone years.  Very nicely appointed. Don’t miss the sunrise or the stars at night.  Majestical around the campfire also.  Thank you both.

A Signature Experience

There is nothing quite like waking up early to see the sunrise in the east across the paddocks. Make some coffee, take a jacket, and watch the birds herald the sunrise while basking in the golden light. Remember to bring your binoculars and iPhone or camera for amazing dawn photography.
