  • Description

    Description

    We are located on a beautiful large bush block at Woodford in the mid-Blue Mountains. The home is in a mini-valley with a pond and plenty of lovely native bush with walking paths.

    We are a quiet, contemplative eco-retreat centre. We aim to live sustainably and practice Permaculture principles. We use natural / recycled building techniques for our projects. We have Yurts, caravans etc for guests and are preparing other accommodation. We always have projects on the go to improve and beautify our place and to set up our permaculture food gardens.

    We are peace/human rights activists, avid travellers and speak German, French, Persian and English of course! And love to host travellers, hear your stories and share tips on what to see and do in the beautiful Blue Mountains...

    Stays for 2 weeks minimum to 3 months and negotiable after that.

    Ours is a quiet and peaceful place - we have the Earth Room, a beautiful community space and three different Labyrinths for walking meditation, bushwalks and a pool to cool off... We like to enjoy quietness on the property in the evening from 8pm.

    We are 1.5 hours by train from Sydney, about an hour's drive. Our home is walking distance to Woodford train station (15-20mins walk), or a 10-15min bike ride.
