My name is Jason and I am responsible for caring and creating this space.
Gondwana Retreat is sacred land. It is sacred to the original people as two rivers meet here which was auspicious, and sacred to me and all that visit. The Aboriginal people used to live and commune here. And now it seems a place where people like to be, and Rest and Rejuvenation - even healing happens here.
Since moving here myself in 2014 it has been a place of transformation and change. The land itself was abandoned with rubbish and weeds everywhere when I arrived and with a bit of hard work, some patience and care it has become a place of beauty. It has been returned to much more of its natural and native state. This process of positive change has created a healing in the environment and for myself, and visitors express this magic in the air.
Nowadays we are offering meditation, yoga, and therapeutic types of practices in the main home that the land and campsite is a part of. Campers are welcome to join and this really makes staying here an opportunity for exploring these practices if you choose.
Be good to share the land and we welcome all to Gondwana retreat!

We had a great time at Jason’s property! The directions to camp were very clear and Jason was there to show us where everything was when we showed up. The weather had been pretty rainy in recent weeks so we were glad to have 4WD to get to camp - there only seemed to be one small spot where we needed it, but still. It rained all night so we couldn’t hear the cars from the road nearby at all. The bathroom (a portaloo) was clean and stocked with soap and tp. Thank you Jason!

I really enjoyed the stay! Had to leave a day early due to chance of rain. Jason was really nice and helpful! And did stay in contact throughout stay to ensure we were enjoying it!
I really enjoyed the sound of nature that this place brought as well.
Be prepared for leeches and mozzies. But lighting a fire will be your best friend!
100% recommend this place as a place to stay. Car access is available to where you are sleeping!

Backyard camping near busy highway
The main house is just meters away with plenty of guests. The house is higher than the camping area and throughout the night the lights are on without any window curtains. So, if you are outside the tent, you can't avoid seeing the light. There is another permanent tent setup around 100 meters from the camping site which plays music like music festivals until after 2 am. In a way the music is good, because once it is turned off the noise of heavy vehicles and small vehicles alike will keep you awake. For the price, it is a rip-off. If you are a light sleeper avoid this site. Overall, below average experience. It's more like camping in your backyard near a busy highway.

Jason was a great host. Hes was most welcoming and understanding of our situation since we had to arrive late and leave early due to the rain. Plus we had the best yoga class in a long time.

Relaxing spot, minimal amenities
Jason was very communicative and friendly.
Everything was inline with the description and other reviews: Good spot if you are looking for something chill but not off the grid (near shops), bit of noise from main house until late and busy road nearby, rustic toilet= portoloo on edge of property, No showers (under construction apparently).
Relaxing spot, but minimal amenities for the price- just set your expectations accordingly and you'll enjoy it.
