Retreat Hub

The Retreat Hub is located at renowned Byron Bay property “Birdland Beachfront”, situated on the edge of Arakwal National Park.

The epitome of Byron Bay lifestyle, the Retreat Hub is surrounded by lush rainforest and has direct access to Tallows Beach. This breezy indoor/outdoor pavilion house will be the central destination for all workshops and is the perfect location for intensive growth and good times!

NOTE: The limited number of rooms available to stay onsite at Birdland has now sold out, please see below for our secondary accommodation, or contact us for a list of local accommodation options.

New Accommodation Offer:
The Bower Cottage

Due to quick snapping up of The Retreat Hub rooms, we have now organised a secondary place to stay if you would like to be close to the action.

Accommodation is limited and available to those who sign up first.

A classic country home, The Cottage sits elegantly and in complete privacy in the Bower’s lush landscape. It is the original 100-year old dwelling, yet any nod to tradition ends at the front door, which opens into sophisticated, five-bedroom, luxury accommodation. Includes a kitchen, indoor/outdoor dining and complimentary continental daily breakfast.

10 minutes walk to The Retreat Hub and Tallows Beach.

  • The Bower Cottage Single Share @ $350 per night

  • The Bower Cottage Twin Share @ $180 per person per night

NOTE: Twin share restricted to guests who know each other and have shared previously

Breakfast excluded for delegates not staying at The Retreat Hub.
