Operating as a creative refuge, Jacky Winter Waters is a site to behold the magic of Walkerville's magnificent beaches. Nestled within the towering bushland that overlooks South Gippsland’s spectacular coastline, it offers expansive views spanning as far as Wilsons Promontory. The house stands in stark contrast to the rugged cliffs in which it was built to admire, offering calm and quiet from the storm.

The spirit of Jacky Winter Waters is encapsulated by its exterior mural entitled 'Deep Drift', created by April Phillips, Beci Orpin, Carla McRae and David Booth. The artwork asks visitors to engage their curiosity at the door, and attempt to discover a still space to rest — something we have endeavoured to provide.

“Deep Drift describes a lively world that exists both in that salty water and within ourselves, one that sweeps and sways in the constant flow of change. A hidden world that can only be discovered by diving deep to meet the big seaweed friends, spiky spinning fellas, mossy molluscs — curves of living memory, organic and oceanic. To go deep, deeper, downwards is to find that place beneath the surface, the inner sanctum. The discovery of a still space to rest beneath the clutter and clash, and to finally look calmly upwards and outwards beyond the ever-shifting surface”.
