HEART & SOUL Retreat
The retreat is situated 1 hour and 52 minutes from Brisbane.
The location is a haven of peace and tranquillity and provides the opportunity to relax from your busy life; to rest and recharge your batteries. Heart and Soul Retreat is set on 22 acres guaranteeing privacy. Nestled in the forest at the end of the valley in beautiful Nobby’s Creek, which lies at the outer edge of the Mt. Warning Caldera.
Stretching from Byron Bay to the Gold Coast and West towards the Great Dividing Range, this vast caldera has been named the Green Cauldron and has been listed by Tourism Australia as one of Australia’s National Landscapes which are nominated for their cultural, natural and spiritual significance.
