From a luxury hideaway in Byron Bay to spiritual surfers and ashram retreats, Australia has a lot to offer to those looking for a place to relax and reconnect. Be inspired by the world’s oldest rainforest, challenge your faith while dangling from a rope or learn to quiet your mind far from cars, businesses and email.
It’s not all big, brash and bold when it comes to Down Under, there’s a quiet side to the country, a movement of peace and quietness of mind. Australian spiritualism draws on the world’s traditions, but with that easy-going attitude adding a distinctly Aussie element, and you can choose from a great range of retreats, holidays or centres dedicated to the art of quiet contemplation.
