Its just out of sydney but feels like a different world. The workshops were informative and fun, and the food...OMG...I am not a vegetarian but...

I had been travelling solo for over 4 months and needed some time to just relax and gather my thoughts for the new year. This was definitely the place! Its location was beautiful, set amongst the bush in the middle of nowhere. The facilities were just big enough for when the retreat was full. Comfy sofas for reading, a swimming...

I visited Billabong Retreat for two nights with a friend. It's in a very peaceful location and close to Sydney which was a bonus for me. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, the deluxe room was clean and spacious and had air conditioning but it wasn't really my idea of deluxe. We had bifold doors so no flyscreens which...

Coming solo to my very first health retreat was a bit scary and exhilarating all at once. I got picked up by the taxi at the station, very convenient way of getting to the retreat, and upon arrival was transfered to a truly magical place where birds sing, insects go about their daily life loudly, and everything is so peaceful...
