The Beauty of Mullumbimby, NSW 

Anahata is home to a beautiful waterfall, a glow worm grotto, rolling lawns dotted with fruit and nut trees and gorgeous green bush. It has its own private waterhole complete with platypus, turtles, many water birds and butterflies. A Balinese pavilion next to running water is an ideal space for yoga, meditation or relaxation. A magical fire pit provides a space for connecting with your mystic, spiritual side beside the fire at night (only available from March – September due to council restrictions). This location is just 15 minutes from Mullumbimby, 25 minutes from Byron Bay and 2 hours from Brisbane airport. Coolangatta/Gold Coast and Ballina airports are just 45 minutes away. An airport shuttle can be arranged.

Pricing starts at $60pp for breakfast and lunch, $70pp for lunch and dinner, and breakfast lunch and dinner is $80pp per day. We are not adverse to a glass of wine at the end of the day either, at a small extra cost. 

Please note that there is no mobile reception in this valley, but we do have a landline telephone for common use and an efficient internet system for Skype or emails. There is no TV reception either, though we do have Foxtel. The lack of airwaves simply adds to the pristine nature of the surroundings.
Anahata is the Sanskrit name for the heart chakra. Anahata chakra symbolises the consciousness of love, empathy, selflessness and spiritual home. On the psychic level, this centre of force inspires the human being to love, be compassionate, altruistic, devoted and to accept the things that happen in a divine way. We named our retreat place Anahata Waters: a meeting of hearts at the water.
