Breakaway from the stress and slow down at Swan Cove, Raymond Island

Welcome to Swan Cove, your peaceful and unique waterfront island retreat nestled on the beautiful Gippsland Lakes. A true haven you can run away to when you need a break from the crowd!

Our story

We're Kirsten and Tony and in 2014, we decided to share the wonderful experience of living in natural tranquility at Swan Cove Raymond Island with travelers in Australia and around the world!

We believe that everyone deserves the best, and that holiday time is a beautiful gift to ourselves. That’s why we created Swan Cove Raymond Island, an oasis where guests can experience a healing and rejuvenating stay.

Tony’s agricultural background, my culinary nutritional expertise, and our experience as yoga instructors have all come together to create a truly special place. We love sharing our local knowledge with travelers so that they can enjoy all that the Gippsland Lakes has to offer.

Come and enjoy some quiet time just for you, or contact us directly if you would like to plan a longer retreat stay. Kirsten can curate a bespoke program just for you, including yoga and delicious meals.


Listen. Be still.
Hear the beating of your own heart.
