Meals were interesting and in keeping with the healthy environment - and certainly fresh. The massage was amongst the best experienced - thanks Michelle, and yoga was an... More

I love everything about Billabong. From the amazing food which was bountiful to the location, the yoga, meditation to hanging out with like-minded strangers ;) It's a jewel. Anyone who is serious about recharging and looking for an insight on how to start some permanent changes for the better, this is the place to go. Staff are fabulous.

I've just spent 3 nights at Billabong Retreat and loved it - I could quite easily have stayed longer and will definitely return. It's certainly relaxing, but it's much more than that. The combination of location, kind intention, yoga and meditation makes it a space where you quite quickly rejuvenate and find your own stillness. The place: It's nothing particularly... More

I had been to the Billabong Retreat before as a day visitor and decided to book for a 2nd time. On the morning of my booked day I was no longer able to attend that day due to unforeseen circumstances with my car and was unable to get there that day. I advised them early morning I was unable to... More

Hi Steph I am sorry you feel ripped off but we could not survive as a small family business without some kind of rescheduling policy. Date changes to day retreats within a 72 hour period do incur a 50% charge. We contracted two external therapists to do your booked treatments and we need to pay those therapists even though you...

Never knew healthy food could taste so good. This place is set around a billabong. We stayed in one of the tree houses with an outside bathtub overlooking the billabong. We enjoyed the yoga and meditation classes because our teacher was excellent. My daughter and I had a facial each with lovely natural products. In the outside common area where... More

This is a great retreat - just great. The yoga and mediation opportunities are fabulous. You pay $15 for linen - and when you arrive they are sitting on the end of your bed for you to make. You can BYO and make your own bed anyway. If I'm paying for linen, I'd like the bed to be made. Food... More
