Rebecca Ritte owns and runs the boutique cabin experience Kangaroo Ridge Retreat and is part owner of Watts River Brewing. Rebecca’s family immigrated to the region in the 1960s and upon returning to the area in late 2017 she and her partner Simon took over Kangaroo Ridge Retreat. Together they changed what were simple self-contained cabins into secluded and intimate experiences representative of the Yarra Valley. The cabins now feature a wide range of local products with guests regularly capturing their experiences on social media and promoting the area. Rebecca’s professional background is in health research and data analytics. With her background in community engagement, research and health data she understands how to read trends, read big data and how to apply these in a community setting.
