Mountain Seas Retreat offers elegant accommodation, easy wilderness access, and has the added benefit of an Arts Centre to promote creativity in a variety of ways. We welcome individuals, couples and small groups to immerse themselves in the natural world and to find their unique creative expression. That may be photography, writing, drawing or painting…or simply curling up and reading a good book! We can support your exploration of the Island, relaxation or your deep dive into creativity.
Mountain Seas Retreat provides the unique potential to work with instructors on the island who can hold arts workshops, including photography, watercolor, ceramics, painting and music. Mountain Seas is also able co-ordinate guided bush walks and island tours. Facilitators with existing groups are encouraged to take advantage of our arts facilities to host their own arts retreats or conferences.
Mountain Seas Arts expanded its arts involvement beginning in 2014, offering an Artist in Residence Program, now available from April to December, 2016. The Residency allows artists to spend up to four weeks in nature's raw beauty, expressing through their chosen artistic medium. The Program is open to all types of artists including, but not limited to, painters, ceramicists, sculptors, writers, musicians, digital and mixed media artists. A residency allows the artist to experience the character of a place in great depth, inspiring a diverse range of rich and vibrant artistic interpretation.

Our aim is to create an exciting Arts and wilderness initiative on Flinders Island by working in conjunction with established Arts bodies; offering opportunities for practicing national and international artists, while providing an artistic connection through workshop to the wider community.
