“The retreat was exactly what I needed — a place to relax and switch off my ‘doing’ brain. The meditations taught me to make space in my head from all the constant thought and left me much more refreshed than just a weekend away.”


—  Rebecca Hale

What’s It Like On Retreat

If you’ve never been on a meditation or yoga retreat before, this is a great place to start. You’ll be gently eased into the practice with simple, user-friendly techniques and expert instruction. For those with more experience, there will be discussions designed to deepen and develop your practice.

The atmosphere will be friendly and light-hearted, and the schedule allows plenty of free time for you to spend as you wish.

You will also have the opportunity to join us on hikes through the forest, creeks and waterfalls and in a variety of practices designed to stretch, loosen and nourish the body.

With secluded waterfalls, unique dedicate meditation and yoga space, and delicious cuisine, Bindarrabi Eco-Retreat is an unspoilt paradise and perfect winter escape.

Experience a deep nature connection, enjoy walking, swimming, birdwatching and admiring the local wildlife.

Teachers & Approach

The retreat is led by two warm, friendly and experienced teachers: Matt Young, Director of the Melbourne Meditation Centre, and Agnes Gonfaus, from Natural Curiosity.

They’ve designed the retreat to be a perfect place for you to rest, relax and restore your wellbeing.

Whilst on retreat you won’t have to worry about a thing. All your needs will be taken care of and you’ll get to enjoy a simple, slower pace of life. Your meals will be lovingly prepared by our expert chefs and you’ll be able to take time out to sleep, read or enjoy the beautiful natural location.

The atmosphere on retreat is friendly and laid-back. You don’t have to get up before dawn, or sit in silence for hours on end. Nor will you have to endure long talks, a demanding schedule or bland food.

Matt and Agnes will be able to offer you valuable insights into your meditation practice. They’ll share unique an innovative approaches to meditation, introduce you to helpful concepts and techniques, and facilitate discussions in which you’ll be able to hear and learn from your fellow retreat participants.


You can choose between staying in a hut, glamping or camping in a delightful camping area and an ideal place to relax.
