All-Inclusive Larder

Indulge with Kangaroo Ridge Retreat in-retreat gourmet larder, an ever-evolving providore of locally-sourced snacks and delights. From artisan ingredients for small meals, grazing boards, soft drinks including sparkling low sugar options to spa kits for relaxation in nature, it redefines your retreat. Enjoy breakfast essentials like local teas, jams, fresh bread and seasonal local produce, all seamlessly included in your stay.

Complementary and abundant, the larder perfectly complements the retreat wine bar, ensuring  you have everything for a stay for a fusion of self-indulgence, self-sufficiency and immersion in the beauty of the Yarra Valley.


A Wine Bar Just for You

Complimenting the larder is your own personal in-retreat wine bar, stocked with a carefully curated selection of wines, beers, ciders and spirits sourced from the Yarra Valley.

With such a wide variety it’s a tour of the cellar doors of the Yarra Valley in your retreat. Whether you’re a connoisseur or just enjoy a good glass of wine, our in-retreat wine bar has something to suit all tastes. Prices are matched to the winery cellar doors.
