NEW! OPENED ON 27th DECEMBER 2018. Your coastal bush oasis awaits! Higher Ground Retreat is 146 acres of coastal bushland at Shark Creek. This off-grid property feels a world away, but is only 15 minutes drive from Maclean, 25 minutes from the stunning beaches at Brooms Head, Angourie and Yamba, and less than 2 hours from the Gold Coast. Visit a working permaculture farm and experience the self-sufficient life you’ve been yearning for, with off-grid solar, tank-water and a dam for swimming. Vegies, fruit trees, chooks, a shade house for seedlings – this garden is chock-a-block full of productive and aesthetic features alike. We also run a small herd of sheep fenced in the cleared area close to the house. The homestead and camping area is 25 acres on top of a small hill within the environmentally protected wetlands. Property is currently renting 'glamping' bell tents and soon will have the camping area open in 2019.

A good experience
This was a nice out of the way place where you can experience a taste of offgrid living and sustainability. It was a beautiful setting with access to a comfortable and well set up outdoor kitchen and shower. It is set in an area that is subject to the environment and its insects so be prepared for the inevitable aussie mozzie or two.

A slice of paradise
Belle's place is a slice of paradise. It was a great location to explore the surrounding area but an even better spot to come back to to relax, nestle under the trees and cool off in the swimming hole. Belle was a great host with lots of knowledge of the area and an openness to share her passion for permaculture and yoga.

Although we weren't too lucky with the weather (so much rain!) we still had a great experience. We were kindly shown around the permaculture garden and dam by Adrian, we felt very welcomed! Enjoyed a fire in the tipi one evening. Looking forward to coming back in the future! Definitely recommend!

Belle's property is in the middle of wetlands on a hill, surrounded by beautiful nature. She hosted a retreat the weekend I was there with friends, and when our friends got stuck with their campervan (as it had rained and rained) was so kind to organize help to get them out. Great location :)
