Resting on a precipice of the Blackall Range, where mist falls faithfully at regular intervals throughout the year, is a 100 acre realm of terra firma adjoining the Bellthorpe National Park, backed by rain forests and overlooking gentle sloping dairy farms to the north ... to the east, breathtaking and uninterruptible view of the Glasshouse Mountains, Moreton Islands and the Australian East coast, to the Pacific Ocean beyond ... all from 555m above sea level. Maleny Retreat is a retreat destination, dedicated to peace, the environment, re-energising the spirit, learning, sharing and creativity.
Maleny Retreat is a part of our home, which we share with others to rent from us, to hold all manner of healing retreats including, silent retreats, prayerful retreats, meditations, yoga, raw food, detox’s, or simply a space where groups of up to 12 people can come together for their own special purposes.
"Our wish is to enable and encourage spiritual renewal, retreat time and a place to rejuvenate oneself from the business... strains and difficulties of life — a place of contemplation."
We share our place with the intention of having other like minded souls come to experience the natural environment that is this “sacred land”, with walks through the rainforest, gentle strolls across the green rolling hills, and the spiritual awakening which comes naturally from returning to our earthly mother ... in absolute guaranteed privacy.
Bellthorpe National Park
Maleny Retreat shares a boundary with Bellthorpe National Park, situated at the southern end of the Conondale Range. Untouched bushland with rainforest, waterfalls and attractive creeks is home to 600 identified plant species and a haven for many endangered and threatened animals. Picnic beside a rock pool at the Stony Creek day-use area. Look for frogs around the rock pools. Identify the many forest birds. There are no formal walking tracks. You may walk along the forest roads but some are steep, so talk to rangers before bushwalking.
Maleny Retreat Guest House
Sitting peacefully at 555m above sea level is a unique intimate retreat building ... a home of 8 small individual and cozy retreat rooms, a communal kitchen / shared bathrooms and a room for the host or facilitators of group gatherings, get togethers and healing retreats. The rooms are small and private aimed at one person retreat rooms. Two of the 8 rooms are twin but still small enough for one.
Maleny Retreat is also a perfect venue for the ultimate country wedding, with endless views to the Glass House Mountains for magnificent photos and a choice of sacred environments to celebrate the joining of two people, and a beautiful blank canvas from which to design your perfect wedding.
