I recently stayed for 3 nights with my mum and sister and we absolutely loved the retreat. Delicious healthy food, beautiful surroundings, and wonderful yoga teachers with classes that anyone could enjoy whether you're a dedicated yogi or trying yoga for the first time. So accessible from Sydney, we'll definitely be back.

The retreat is on the edge of a lotus covered billabong in a beautiful bush settng.

A perfect place to get away; learn a little about looking after yourself; and be pampered with the service and massage. Alcohol was not missed - we soon made up for that. 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...

I have recently submersed myself in the glory of Billabong's beautiful people and environment. Staff at the retreat were more than employees, as their passion for teaching others about living well, as well as their knowledge on discovering the power of the self was so lovingly shared. From the beautiful meals that were beyond fulfilling with aroma, freshness, wholesomeness, and...

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...

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...
