Retreat, workshop, small conference venue, mid South Coast, NSW

Attention workshop leaders, event organisers!!! 

Bawley Bush Retreat at Bawley Point is the perfect coastal location for you to bring your group for a workshop or small conference. In addition to a stunning timber-floored workspace, a 175sqm marquee that we will be able to offer from December 2018, lawns, a commercial kitchen and beautiful cottage accommodation, we offer you and your clients full access to all of our 36 acres of grounds. The latter includes forests, lawns, bush and lakeside bushwalks. We have a beautiful camping glade for use by those in your party who want a more economical experience. Whether you need space for a bodywork, personal development seminar, craft or art workshop or you just need space for a creative or serious purpose then check us out before choosing somewhere else. We are great value at all times and you will certainly find our attractive mid-week workshop-space/accommodation tariffs hard to beat.

Please note we do not run or organise retreats on our own account or provide a booking service for retreat attenders. Our business is the provision of beautiful spaces, accommodation with linen, amenities and grounds for retreat leaders and event organisers to hire for the pleasure and/or education of their own clients. We do what we can to facilitate leaders run successful events.

Retreat minimum night stay policy

If you are a leader who wants to hold a retreat that includes a weekend then, for most of the year, we have a 3 night minimum-pay policy whether you want to stay for 2 or 3 nighhts.. For weeknight retreats and weekends in mid-May to mid-September this is reduced to a 2 night minumum.

"Our absolute favourite location.... on the South Coast for yoga retreats.  We love the natural setting that feels miles from anywhere, and the cottages are all cosy and comfortable.  The main hall is set up perfectly for yoga classes - high ceilings, timber floors, plenty of natural light, excellent sound equipment, and of course the log fire for winter retreats.  We especially love the fact that we can be fully self-contained with our own chef, and literally have the property all to ourselves. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to host very special and intimate yoga retreats." ~ Nicole Walsh | Yoga Teacher & Teacher Trainer,  InYoga - Sydney

Our venue has been used by yoga, quilting, writing, music and personal development groups as well as by government, peak industry bodies and businesses for planning and staff development sessions. Ours is a very private retreat environment isolated from neighbours and with no passing traffic except for wildlife. We have all the facilities you would expect of a high quality venue: highly-rated accommodation, beautiful craftsmanship in construction, timber floors, iconic south coast bush views, plenty of electrical capacity, music players and microphones, overhead projector, wide screen TV with HDMI input, wi-fi, plenty of tables and chairs etc etc.  We do not directly provide food for guest groups but our well-equipped caterer's kitchen is ready for your self-catering or for the caterer of your choice. Local caterers, used to working at Bawley Bush Retreat, are listed under the Local Provider's subtab of this site and are willing to directly quote your needs.
