Retreat Leaders, are you searching for the right venue to host your next retreat in Australia?


At Retreat Me Happy, we’re all things Retreats (obviously, haha). You may have already seen our extensive Retreat Directory.

We like helping you find a retreat, but we can also help you host your retreat.

We’re assuming you’re over the biggest hurdle and know exactly what the retreat will be about…

After that, the biggest decision you need to make is finding the retreat location. The venue needs to be chosen carefully so that it’s appropriate to the type of retreat you’re booking and suitable for the time of year you’ve chosen.

The perfect location can make all the difference to the success and value of your retreat.

We’ve had quite a few retreats listed on our website, so just by the nature of our work (if you can call dreaming about retreats work…) we see some ideal retreat venues.

We’ve decided to put together a list of retreat venues we’ve found in Australia.

Many can be used for different purposes, from yoga and wellness retreats to business retreats and pure getaways, so you’ll need to research each one for your purpose but we figure the best place to start is with the location.  If you have an idea of where you want to hold your retreat, or at least the state you’d like to hold it in, then you’re off to a good start…
