Entry Description

Set on a striking elevation just outside Hepburn Springs, Oikos, named after the ancient Greek word for home, is an indulgent short-stay retreat.

Oikos evokes the red centre of this great southern land - it’s dramatic, sculptural form both complementing and disappearing into the rugged precipice on which it stands.

The retreat is subtle in scale yet rich in design, offering the best in built architectural form and natural landscape setting.
