Beautiful location to connect with nature and your inner self. The food is absolutely superb and the accommodation is clean and comfortable. I enjoyed the Yoga and Meditation classes and would love to go back there again.

A tremendous place for a group of 20 like minded souls. Peaceful surroundings, gentle yoga, lots of exercise or not. Fabulous ambiance with the open deck & roaring fire. Lots of healthy, great tasting food and friendly staff. Wish all my weekends were that good!

Billabong Retreat is a little slice of heaven. It is an eco-friendly retreat that is set amongst beautiful bushland. The modest accommodation is clean and comfortable, and I absolutely loved Tory's paintings that are installed throughout the retreat. The food was absolutely delicious, thanks to Mignon, and I loved the yoga and meditation practice talk by Paul and the others. I would love to go there again.

Room Tip: If you spend a little more, choose the cabins as they overlook the billabong.

I organised a w/e for my friends in my yoga class. We all agreed it was a lovely time. The food is wonderful, generous portions, full of flavour, nobody missed having meat. Donna's yoga sessions concentrated on being gentle with our bodies. We all took something new away with us. We all plan to return regularly.

Beautiful location. Accommodation in tree tops overlooking billabong. Very peaceful. Food was absolutely delicious. Got in plenty of exercise, bike riding, walking and yoga - balanced with eating and sitting in front of fire it is definitely a 'chill out' place or 'just get away from it all. Will try to make it a yearly event if not more often.

beautiful location and totally at one with nature - love that it was made with love for the planet and is a totally self contained retreat. Retreat is an appropriate name for Billabong. From the minute you arrive you forget the outside world and all your troubles. Food is amazing, accommodation is basic but comfortable. Loved it and would go back again...

Wow..!!...What a fantastic experience...!!...First of all the location is amazing,overlooking the billabong(it's really a dam but billabong sounds more better)Immediately on arrival and entering the retreat area,I noticed the familiar aroma of Western red cedar(I'm a cabinetmaker/yoga teacher)
The buildings are constructed of WRC...Also the clean,fresh aroma of the bush just cleanses your nostrils on every inhalation....
Mignon the chef...What can I say,she is wonderful and her meals are truly delightful and tasty...
Paul,the owner is a wonderful host and an inspiring yoga/meditation teacher....
The view both mornings from our cabin overlooking the billabong was amazing....The cool mist of the morning leaving teardrops on spiders webs...And not a breath of wind...So still and beautiful...!!....
Not advisable to swim in the billabong....
Paul has done a wonderful job building this fabulous retreat with absolute care for the environment and eco system....
A remote shangri la and only 1 1/2 hours from Manly....We will return...!!
