A Place To Flourish

Kalang Retreat fosters the imagination of dedicated writers by providing an inspirational setting to create, explore ideas and experiment. Located in the sleepy seaside town of Somers, we are a small independent retreat, offering writers from any discipline a workspace in which to prosper. We welcome individuals, and offer a meeting place for smaller groups, for those who thrive in lively literary discussion. Kalang Retreat provides respectful and comfortable accommodation where you can encounter the small and grand within the natural world, freeing you from the commotion of everyday life.

Self-Directed Writers' Retreats

Are you a motivated writer needing a peaceful space to take your project to the next level? Maybe a getaway with your writing colleagues with self-run workshops and nature walks is on your agenda? Our aim is to graciously host writers as you draw inspiration from this unique landscape.

The Salon

We enjoy connecting with community on the Mornington Peninsula! We often invite our resident writers to showcase their work during an afternoon of author readings. We are keen to show off our writers. The generous locals of the neighbourhood and writers from Melbourne are very keen to listen, to show their support.
