The Beet Retreat, Victoria’s favourite Vegan B&B, now relocated to the stunning
Noosa Hinterland in Queensland!
Originally located in the Yarra Valley since March 2014, The Beet Retreat Vegan B&B soon became the “go-to” place for those who sought something more than just another B&B. The Vegan ethos, the wonderful food, the warm and welcoming in-house hospitality and the enthusiastic attention of the four legged co-hosts!
Though she loved sharing her home of 25 years with local and international guests, vivacious host, vegan athlete and resident Chef, Jan Saunders harboured a dream! One day she would relocate to the beautiful Noosa region, return to the sports she loved and share that special playground with her wonderful guests.
The Next Chapter of this Vegan B&B Begins!
Noosa and the Hinterland offers a vast array of natural wonders to discover and enjoy. With it’s delightful sub-tropical climate, it is both a region in which to relax and while-away the days, but also one that beckons the active to get outside and explore!
Enjoy abundant locally grown fruit and vegetables, gorgeous Farmers Markets, quaint Hinterland villages. Visit vibrant Hastings Street, world renowned beaches and National Parks! Play on the extensive mountain-biking and hiking trail networks, the waterways and the largest mangroves outside of Florida! Noosa truly is a paradise waiting for you to immerse in.
The Beet Retreat-Vegan B&B re-opened after COVID in September 2020. Once again Jan offers her guests a place of genuine welcome and tranquility, a truly “home away from home” ambience for adults whether plant based or not.
