Mobility Impaired
Billabong Retreat is situated on a rock escarpment and many buildings are only accessible by stairs. We have one accessible cabin and the main retreat centre is accessible. Please note the wellness centre (where individual treatments occur) is not accessible as there is stair access only.
Group Hire
We offer exclusive and non exclusive hire to peaceful groups with a wellness theme. Please see
Swimming in Billabong is done at your own risk as it is a natural waterway. Our magnesium aqua therapy pool is open all year but can be chilly in the winter as it is only heated by an eco friendly solar hot water system.
Room Features
All of our rooms are clean and simply with beautiful bush views. All rooms have fans, insect screens, heaters and are well insulated. Beds have doonas, pillows, linen, blankets, towels and hot water bottles. All bathrooms have complimentary biodegradable shampoo, hand wash, body wash and conditioner for you to use (but not take away!). There are no TV’s or WIFI access.

Yoga Suitability
Yoga is suitable for all persons of all ages and all levels of health. Yoga is all about the individual so there is always a yoga practice that is right for you. The question is understanding what that practice is. One size does not fit all. You will learn to do a yoga practice that is suitable for you.
Environmental Credentials
We are a fully certified eco-retreat so take our impact on the environment very seriously. We are self sufficient for water and waste disposal and operate a bio-pod worm farm waste water system. It is very important that only biodegradable waste is put down the toilets and sinks. Water is restricted to 50 litres of rain water per person per day. With short showers this amount is ample. We also have a solar hot water heating system and a grid connected photovoltaic electricity generating system. We aim to minimise recycling and landfill waste and we compost all our food waste.
