Durobby Retreat,

Savour the perfume of water lillies hanging in the clean, crisp air as you watch birds appear silently on the water through early morning mist. Sit on the lake’s edge, in quiet contemplation of the environment around you. Feast your eyes on the colours of nature. Experience the joys and adversities of the wheel of life as it unfolds before you. Let your mind and body remember what it is like to … simply relax … and be still.

Time slows down as the beauty of nature and the comfort of our retreat allows the mind to rest and the body recover at our secluded and private luxury rainforest retreat in stunning natural surroundings.

Whether it’s nature massaging your senses or our health professionals pampering your body and mind, you’ll leave us with a sense of well-being, feeling refreshed, calm and re-energised, ready to face the world anew.

Choose from our range of B&B escapes where you can customise your own pure indulgence and pampering getaway, or discuss a personalised health and well being retreat, with a fully customised program to your requirements. Or we can treat you to our “Movie Star” treatment for those who want complete privacy and relaxation.

We invite you to join us at a place in harmony with its environment, so you too, can experience more than just our five star standard accomodation and service.

Named after the now rare Durobby (Syzygium moorei) tree, Durobby Retreat is located at the foot of Mount Warning National Park in the Tweed Valley, on the far north coast of Northern New South Wales. Just 25 minutes drive to Gold Coast airport at Coolangatta, 45 minutes drive to Byron Bay and less than 90 minutes drive to Brisbane, makes us ideal for a last minute midweek or short break.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes. See our short list of Australia's best beaches.
