Mt Hyland Wilderness Retreat

Mt Hyland Wilderness Retreat is a magnificent 968 acre forested property situated in a unique, serene forested location 43km north-west of Dorrigo, New South Wales, Australia. It adjoins the World Heritage forests of Mt Hyland Nature Reserve and is surrounded by vast wilderness areas of State Forests and National Parks, offering spectacular scenery.

We have six types of rainforest communities and eight open forest communities surrounding our Lodge and the adjoining Mt Hyland Nature Reserve.  There are many species of plants and animals present here, all living in their native habitats, and some of them rare and endangered: over a 100 species of birds; koalas, wallabies, possums, gliders, kangaroos, bandicoots, quoll, 10 types of frogs, and a variety of reptiles, just to mention a few.

We offer accommodation for individuals, couples, families as well as groups of up to 30 people.  Our facilities and our beautiful place here in the forest is also available for workshops and retreats for those wishing to connect deeply to the earth and within themselves. Our steadily growing range of courses and retreats will allow you, for example, to explore native skills and philosophies, wilderness and bush survival skills, plant identification, environmental studies, deep meditation practices, and alternative healing techniques, or simply to rest and regenerate.

"Through our relationship with the natural world  we unfold the messages of life and meet with our own peace."
