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!

My story

Hi, I'm Kirsten and in 2014, I decided to share the wonderful experience of living in natural tranquility at Swan Cove Raymond Island with travellers in Australia and around the world!

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

My love of nature, culinary nutritional expertise, and experience as a yoga instructor has all come together to create a truly special place. I love sharing my local knowledge with travellers so that they can enjoy all that the Gippsland Lakes has to offer.

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