Was lucky enough to try this when visiting Mt Romance Sandalwood Factory, which is a great interesting & beautiful place to visit in itself. The guided tour & history of Sandalwood was also interesting. The products are lovely & I thought were well priced. The Gong & Cone is a relaxing experience where you lay in a beautiful big tee pee type tent, with the most amazing starlit ceiling & relax/meditate/doze whatever, to the beating sound of the Bongs & the deep, therapeutic wafting of Sandalwood. We came away totally relaxed & rejuvenized. We were also given a Sandalwood silk scarfe to put under the pillow at night, which is calming. Would recommend to everyone.

Mt Romance Sandalwood factory is a unique place. This is the worlds largest distillery of Australian Sandalwood oil. This outlet has many health and beauty products , even wine infused with the sandalwood oil. I purchase my aftershave gel and deodorant from here.
The products do last a long time so they are good value for the price.

Positives - we had no idea about the origins and use of sandalwood, so this was a good education.
Negatives - the price of goods for sale was extortionate compared with buying the same goods elsewhere

Stopped off at Sandalwood Factory Cafe on the road back to Perth on Boxing Day to have lunch as very few cafes/restaurants were open in Albany that day. Highly recommend. I had a lovely chicken salad with the most sublime inhouse-made mango chutney. Exactly what I was looking for after the excesses of Christmas Day. Great coffee and friendly staff. Cakes also looked gorgeous. Was able to purchase a jar of the chutney and stock up on favourite Mt Romance products. This cafe has to be one the region's best. Now on my must do list whenever we are in Albany.

On our recent visit to the Mount Romance Sandalwood Factory we indulged ourselves and took the most pleasant hour 'out' participating in "The Cone The Gong and the Bowl" experience. Sandalwood really does have some relaxing vapours, and combined with a bit of yoga and gong playing over our bodies, we could truly go to a deeply relaxing place in our minds for a lovely dreamy escape. I highly recommend this wonderful experience.
The shop is laid out beautifully, and their products are lovely.
