Want to Experience the Exotic Without Leaving Australia?
Open to a tantalizing taste of colourful Tibetan Buddhist culture arising from lush green Queensland rainforest? This peaceful setting has much to offer for the curious and there is certainly no hard sell. Less than thirty minutes from the coast via Eudlo one is transported to a very different space within 160 acres of rainforest. Feel yourself relax as you negotiate the scenic route along Ilkley Road with vast views over the forest-clad hills.

Forest Path
Stroll through the Trees

Wander about to soak up the forty years of calm, the paths meander between small rustic cabins and very tall trees. Enjoy a real coffee with fresh cake or a vegetarian lunch at the Big Love Cafe or browse their shop of Asian goods. Glimpse those drifting about in maroon robes just like the Dalai Lama or explore one of their courses or mediations. Better still, hire out their facility to run your own course yoga, city escape, therapy, training, etc. Their new expanded facility has plenty of space with two additional 'offices' attached for private interviews.

Tibetan Buddhist Art
Prayer Wheel, Statue and Bodhi Tree

They can provide delicious vegetarian meals and charming rustic accommodation with plenty of parking. Come a bit earlier, not just for that chai, but be prepared to test your fitness climbing the stairs or if sincerely challenged you can be dropped off near their shop.

And as you drive away along Highlands Road please don't forget to buy some fresh organic fruit and veg direct from the farms stalls and the exquisite gerberas in season.
