Introducing Billabong Retreat, a sanctuary created for inner wellness and peace of mind. Nestled amidst nature’s beauty, it invites you to reconnect with yourself, others, and the natural world around you. This place of heart and kindness is the vision and passion of founder Paul von Bergen.
Paul’s personal journey, from a corporate career promoting various products, to a life-altering experience on a Thai island, led him to the transformative power of yoga and mindfulness. Trained by esteemed figures in the field, he has since combined ancient wisdom with modern scientific thought to design a range of programs at Billabong Retreat.
Offered services include daily yoga classes, evening meditations, and workshops on yoga philosophy, meditation, mindfulness, stress, self-care, and nutrition. These programs are designed to teach simple techniques that, if practiced for just 15 minutes daily, can enhance your quality of life. While the retreat doesn’t affiliate with any particular organization or religion, it welcomes all individuals seeking inner balance and wellness.
Billabong Retreat has been recognized as an award-winning wellness destination, boasting awards such as Best Health & Wellness Retreat and Most Unique Accommodation at the NSW Tourism Awards. Located just 45 minutes from Sydney, New South Wales, it is a haven offering nutritious whole food meals alongside its wide array of programs.
Here, sustainability is a core value. The retreat takes pride in its eco-friendly operations, with notable achievements like the use of recycled materials in construction, reliance on solar power, rainwater collection, and an on-site grey water system. Billabong Retreat’s commitment to environmental preservation extends to the experience of its guests, with opportunities to enjoy the surrounding nature, teeming with a variety of local bird species and other wildlife.
In addition to standard inclusions, the retreat offers optional extras for an indulgent experience. You can choose from private yoga or meditation consultations, various types of massages, facials, reiki, and more.
At Billabong Retreat, contentment and wellness are not just goals, but a way of life.
