“Absolutly Amazing Retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

i cannot say enough about this wonderful beautiful place! I love yoga and wanted to go away for a weekend to do some yoga and meet some new people but was abit reluctant going on my own. As soon as I got there i knew it was everything i was looking for. the place is so cool, you can read a magazine, go for a walk, hang in a hammock, chat to other people on big comfy couches.its totally up to you. The meals were so healthy and delicious and every mouthful was amazing. Recommend to get a massage in a peaceful hut by the billabong. I loved this place so much and 100% recommend it. You drive out feeling full of energy and better than ever

I spent a very pleasant weekend at Billabong Retreat. The location is very pretty and tranquil, despite being in a residential area. The communal areas are beautiful and a lot of work has obviously gone into them. I think everyone enjoyed relaxing on the deck with a book. As has been mentioned by other reviewers, the food is very good and nutritious. There was also plenty of it and we were all well fed!

The yoga was relaxing, but quite different from what I am used to. For those of you who go to power yoga at a gym once or twice a week, be aware that the emphasis here is on the more spiritual, slower and meditative side of yoga.

We purchased a voucher for our stay from LivingSocial, so our stay was particularly good value.

Just 2 nights and I felt so relaxed, revived and rejuvenated! The stunning setting, the yoga, the generosity of Paul and Tory who freely shared their skills and knowledge of yoga and nutrition (always happy to answer questions), the nourishing and delicious food and the kindred spirits who also shared this nurturing experience, made it seem like I had been on a much longer break. Can't wait to spend a longer time there! Being so accessible from Sydney I know I will be back.

Amazing healthy food, my body certainly thank me for it. Certainly feels zen after a 6 day retreat. Change my life, I am practicing yoga everyday now. Paul has given me an easy personalized yoga practise to take home. Highly recommend everyone to do this retreat, yoga sessions are easy, very tranquil atmosphere and yummy food. Lisa

Booked in for the 6 day New Years Eve retreat, it was the perfect amount of time to relax enough to get the full benefit of all thats on offer, great food, great location (very tranquil), great classes great teachers, made great friends. enjoyed classes I wasn't expecting to. it makes sence when you make the booking but makes even better sence when your actually there. Your body and your life will thank you for "giving it a go". Just do it.

I am very grateful to Paul and Tory for sharing their beautiful energy and space with me.
As soon as i arrived i was certain i wouldn't want to leave and the experience of the setting and various different yoga practices has inspired me to continue in this path.
My weekend away has changed my life and thats exactly the miracle i was hoping for.
Peace and love is what you will get at Billabong. I even had an outdoor bath while chatting to the kookaburras. Absolutely priceless! X

A friend and i were lucky enough to be part of their first ever day retreat (which provided us a beautiful day of r&r away from husbands, kids, and city life). Opted for the train and free shuttle service which i highly recommend. From the moment i arrived at billabong i knew i was somewhere special. Beautifully designed treehouse fantasy dome built up on the hillside in the woods overlooking the forest and gorgeous pond which had bright pink and purple flowers in bloom. It was a cool drizzly morning and the fire was crackling on arrival along with pota of chai tea and honemade pumpkin bread. The rest of the day was divine- yoga class, an insanely delicious vegetarian lunch, a walk and chillout around the lovely property, and an afternoon of other relaxing activities. I opted for the massage as well which was nice and chilled at the open air pavillion down by the water. Could have sat in a hammock there all day!!! It was a gorgeous day spent in nature and calmness, i would like to go back one day when bub is older (and hubby can handle a full weekend shift) and do a 2 night retreat. The house overlooking the water with the outdoor tub on the balcony looked particularly inviting!!!
