The retreat wasn't as far as thought. I only had to drive on country roads for about 5-10 minutes before arriving. The property is beautiful, clean and I felt safe as well. Upon check-in a young lady showed me the main facilities and pointed out my room to me. I was sharing the Quad rooms. The room was basic but... More

I have just spend 2 days at Billabong Retreat, yoga and meditation is included in the price and you can do as much or as little as you like. Very friendly and welcoming staff and the vegetarian food is excellent. Love it and believe it to be good value. We had a deluxe room and it was beautiful and comfortable... More

A friend and I recently returned from two nights at this amazing retreat and we're still floating. We were concerned that going in winter might be unpleasant but we loved snuggling up by the huge fire in the open air relaxation area. The dining room, yoga room and indoor relaxation area were all well heated. I would definitely recommend it... More

I've just spent the weekend at Billabong retreat participating in yoga and meditation. What an awesome place!! Beautiful surroundings, scrumptious food and friendly awesome staff. Our accommodation was cozy and warm and the atmosphere was tranquil, calm and beautiful. I had a facial, massage and private yoga lesson all which where fantastic. I highly recommend Billabong Retreat and will definitely... More

This place is amazing! It's so close to Sydney but feels like a million miles away, only a 45 minute drive and we were surrounded by lush green bush. We stayed in the luxury queen cabin with the stunning outdoor bath. The room was completely fitted out with Ecodownunder Organic Linen and was really comfortable. It was so beautifully relaxing,...

My boyfriend booked this in for me as a surprise getaway not really knowing what it was. We were both pleasantly surprised. We had a deluxe room which was really tastefully decorated and comfortable. The outdoor bath overlooked bushland and a billabong which was lovely. The food served was all organic, vegetarian and on the most part, gluten and dairy... More

the setting is awesome. The food was divine. The yoga teachers and various talks were phenomenonal and suited all levels. The meditation was perfect. I would ask for a seperate cabin next time as the joined cabins are not soundproof from your neighbour. That said you don't spend much time in your cabin. The common areas are divine and the...

If you could use a getaway from this crazy, fast-paced world we live in (and who couldn't), find your way out to this lovely spot about 1 hour from Sydney. There is wonderful organic food lovingly prepared, a variety of activities like yoga, meditation etc but no pressure, just do the ones you want. Staff are all exceptional and everyone... More

I have just experienced a Mindfulness Course at Billabong and found the combination of science and thousands-of-years-old yoga and meditation practice so appropriate for where I am at now. The location, eco-friendly buildings and practices and the expert and friendly staff were wonderful. Massage with Kat was a highlight! Lounging on the beautiful deck and talking to like minded people... More

Have to admit I was a little hesitant initially being a guy going to a mindfulness and yoga retreat. My wife had been before and swore I would enjoy it. The place is just beautiful and a little slice of produce just out if the city. Cabins are basic but have a stunning view to the billabong and trees. Courses... More
