As the stresses of modern day life peel away with every exhalation, a quintessentially Australian soundtrack of bellbirds and cicadas assures you’re exactly where you need to be – amid the treetops, in a place that makes you whole again. When it comes to Billabong Retreat’s singular appeal, there is much to be considered. Located an hour’s drive from Sydney, the boutique eco-retreat offers daily yoga and meditation, locally sourced organic meals, luxury wellness treatments such as hot rock massage, hypnotherapy and reiki and use of the aqua therapy magnesium swimming pool – or for the more adventurous, a dip in the retreat’s namesake billabong. It is a place to reconnect to the nature and life within and around, a place to be at once lost and found.
