Product Features

Austral Retractaway 40 Clothesline

The Austral Retractaway 40 is a top selling heavy duty clothesline that can hold a huge wash load for a family of 4-5.

With a unique line tension system that extends up to 8m and retracts back to the wall when not in use, this is a popular unit and top seller.


The long line length of this model is perfect for narrow spaces. Any supporting posts can be fixed into the ground (grass/soil), or bolted down on top of an existing concrete area (plated post version).

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Is there a minimum distance that I have to pull out the lines?

    Yes, the Retractaway 40 has a minimum extension of just 2m. This means you can pull the lines out from the cabinet any distance from 2m up to 8m(10m for the extended version) and the lines can be locked.   

    Can I install the clothesline in the ground instead of on the wall?

    Yes, you can add 1 or 2 Post Kits to your order if you don’t have a wall available.

    What does ‘Plated’ Post Kit mean?

    A Plated Post Kit allows you to bolt the post down onto an existing concrete area rather than core drilling or jack hammering holes into the concrete. The post has a metal plate welded on the bottom with holes for dyna-bolting down onto the concrete. 

    How does the Retractaway 40 compare to other, similar clotheslines?

    To compare all of the Retractaway 40's features against Hills, Brabantia, and Daytek clotheslines that are similar, then visit our Austral Retractaway 40 clothesline comparison chart.

    What is the best height for installing a retractable clothesline?

    A general rule of thumb is to install the clothesline so that the lines are approx. 50mm above the users head height. An average height is approx. 1800mm but you can adjust this to suit your requirements.
