It may be possible to apply for grants to cover costs to attend retreats, though this would have to be done some time ahead. If you want to explore this avenue here are two links:


Paradise One has a conscious food policy. We supply our kitchen with organic food grown on site or sourced locally. We can cater for any personal dietary needs. Please let us know at the time of booking. We have a renowned gourmet vegan chef on site to cook us 3 amazingly delicious meals a day. All meals are vegetarian with vegan options.


Flying In
Fly into Coolangatta (Gold Coast), Ballina/Byron Gateway, or Brisbane. The earlier you book the cheaper the airfare will be.
There are also various buses which drive to Byron Bay from almost anywhere such as Greyhound,

For airport transfers, will bring you to our door from the Gold Coast & Ballina/Byron Gateway Airports but must be booked in advance (& is very expensive from Brisbane Airport) a cheaper option from Brisbane Airport runs regular shuttles to Byron Bay from all Airports,
as does  from where we can pick you up in our mini-van for an extra fee of $40.
Fees for an Airport shuttle bus vary.
Another door to door option is Jayride 

Brisbane airport to Byron is approx. $60
Gold Coast Airport to Byron Bay is approx. $40
Ballina/Byron Gateway Airport to Byron Bay is approx. $22

Renting a car from the airport and returning it to the airport when you leave is also a good option.


Suggestions of what to bring:
clothing for warm-hot weather/cool at night
Swimsuit & towel for pool/creek
Sandals/walking shoes
Mosquito repellent-preferably natural
Please be aware not to wear any sunscreen, mosquito repellent,
or any other chemicals/creams if you are swimming in the creek, as this can harm the wildlife that lives there.
