About David & Maria Woolaway
Gumnut Getaway, is owned and operated by husband and wife team, professional artists, David and Mary. David was born in Africa to English parents and emigrated to Australia when he was 5 years old. Mary was born in Holland and emigrated to Australia when she was 9 years old. Both lived and went to school in Southern Adelaide, meeting later in life and marrying in 2013. Both are qualified and practicing artists with shared interests in silver jewellery manufacturing, ceramics/pottery, photography and rock n roll dancing. Due to all these shared skills they came to the conclusion they had something to offer other people and love sharing their knowledge by running art workshops and rock n roll classes.
David & Maria Woolaway purchased this Bed And Breakfast in 2017
Why David & Maria Woolaway chose Goolwa North
This property was chosen as it is in one of the most picturesque locations in South Australia. The Fleurieu Coast is a sought after location for travelers from overseas, interstate and from Adelaide. Mary & David chose the location for its quiet rural setting, and the size of the block. They built their house, 3 art studios and bed & breakfast in 2016, and have been running the B&B since October 2017.
What makes this Bed And Breakfast unique
Besides being in one of South Australia's sought after locations, with endless beaches, the Coorong Nation Park and the Murray River virtually on our doorstep, the unique benefits of staying at Gumnut Getaway are the options of doing an art workshop while you are here. Stay for 2 nights and spend a day in one of the workshops playing with clay, creating a silver jewellery item, learning the art of scraper-board etching, or learning how to use your DSLR camera on manual settings. You can even book in for a personal Rock N Roll dancing lesson, and don't forget the free studio portrait photo sitting offered to all of their guests!

Beautiful retreat. Quiet, comfortable.
We visited this well appointed, very clean, comfy retreat for the second time. We were welcomed with special extra treats to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary. Breakfast supplies generous. Large very comfortable bed. Highly recommended. Secluded and restful but close to river walks and a short drive to this very interesting historic town.
Beautiful quiet location.
A nice quiet place to relax and chill out. The courtyard garden is a beautiful setting to enjoy breakfast amongst bees and birds before a stroll down the road to the water's edge. Breakfast supplies were fantastic and the accommodation was extremely clean and tidy. Very happy with our stay.
Thank you for your positive review Nigel. We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We'd be happy to host you again if you come back to Goolwa in the future.

Thank you for your lovely review Helen. We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us and would love to host you again should you come back to Goolwa in the future.
A little Goolwa Gem
Loved meeting David, Mary and Gypsy the cat. Wonderfully relaxing night away and really enjoyed exploring our creative sides with a ceramics workshop the next day! Highly recommend Gumnut Getaway.
Thank you so much for your wonderful comments Alana. We're glad you had a relaxing night in our B&B. We really enjoyed meeting you and Kirsty and loved seeing you both conquer the ceramics wheel, plus hand-build a bowl and jug! We would love you to come and stay with us again.
