What to expect from our retreats
Rolling Hills Retreat provides the perfect space for relaxing, rejuvenating and unwinding. You can get involved with as much or as little of the proposed programs as you like.
We are a humble home-stay style of retreat, not a luxury resort - we aim to provide comfort and relaxation at an affordable price.
Opportunities for self-development, personal growth, gaining insight and letting go can also occur for those who are looking for that - themed workshops will be offered throughout the retreat as well as free time to relax or explore the area.
9 guests maximum.
Morning hatha or vinyasa flow yoga as well as evening relaxing and calming yin or restorative yoga (5 night retreats have at least 1 daily yoga session, mostly 2).
Meditations and wellness workshops offered throughout the day.
Healthy and tasty vegan/gluten-free/dairy-free home-cooked food provided for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Group fitness classes offered on some retreats to those who wish to participate (or simply relax by the pool instead - the choice is yours - no judgement here at Rolling Hills Retreat).
Pre-booked optional extras from other trained professionals include: massage, reiki healing and acupuncture.
Pickup from Ballina/Lismore airports and central Byron Bay is possible.

The entire weekend exceeded my expectations. I went into the retreat a damaged soul with little to no positive perspective on life. There was the perfect mix of activities which included, self healing, self care, free time and group activities which allowed me to connect with others.
Rolling Hills Retreat is a slice of heaven, situated in a beautiful location surrounded by mountains and neighbouring farms. It offers spacious and scenic views of mother nature creating a sense of calmness and serenity. The food was incredible and the hosts, Chris and Cam, were unbelievable.
The yoga and mediation programs were beyond incredible. The programs have equipped me with the necessary strategies to deal with negative thoughts and bad decision making. I have found myself repeating my own mantra's and affirmations on a daily basis since returning from the retreat. I meditate every night and have recommenced my yoga practices.
Sine the retreat, I have implemented more joy and self care routines in my everyday life. I feel refocussed and full of purpose. Chris and Cam, thank you for the opportunity and for allowing me to find myself again. I am eternally grateful.
What can I say except wow! The 2 night yoga and wellness retreat at Rolling Hills Retreat was phenomenal from start to finish. Chris and Cameron were excellent hosts, providing the small comforts that help make you feel like you're at home and in a safe, welcoming space. The food was freshly prepared, vegan and so tasty - for someone who only eats vegetarian perhaps 2-3 times per week, I will now be moving more towards vegan recipes in the future thanks to their amazing and easy to follow examples.
The yoga part of this retreat was great for a beginner like myself who has only done a few YouTube videos and a gym class here and there. We were shown different types of yoga and were expertly guided into the correct form by instructor Chris. Going back to the body balance class at the gym the following day, I felt clear and confident in my movements and in the new techniques I had learnt over the weekend.
The self care/help workshops were more than I expected but what a great space to let go of some darkness and get help seeing the light, with techniques to take home and continue the good vibrations. The meditation workshops were equally as useful and I felt myself fall into a meditative state for the first time with Chris's soothing voice and expert guidance.
With plenty of free time, activities to do as a group and solo, and planned workshops and exercise, I highly recommend this retreat for anyone looking to recharge their batteries, kickstart their mental and physical health journey or just get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life with these beautiful souls and in such beautiful surroundings. I am already counting down the days until I can visit this beautiful place again for another wonderful retreat!
I recently attended a 3-day retreat at Rolling Hills Retreat and am feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and grounded. Everything about the experience was nourishing and positive - the stunning location and scenery, accomodation and facilities, delicious food and first class program facilitated by an experienced and warm host. It was a wonderful retreat that I highly recommend.
