Bellbunya is a demonstration centre for sustaining living on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland in Queensland Australia. Allow us to host your next conference, retreat or workshop. Or, get a taste of community life as a visitor or a volunteer. Learn with us by doing and sharing, or participate in a course - permaculture, yoga, holistic health, sustainable design, alternative economics, group processes and much more.

Bellbunya is owned by an environmental charity and set up as a small eco-village on 40 acres. We have organic food gardens, wildlife corridors, a creek and lagoon, a conference hall and restaurant and accommodation for 30 guests. The Centre is run on 100% renewable energy.

Integral to the Centre is the Bellbunya Sustainable Community, established to explore ways to create a re-localised and sustainable future. Our “4-bottomline” approach includes: (1) personal and spiritual growth, (2) social sustainability, (3) economic sustainability, and (4) environmental sustainability. We practise permaculture, organic growing and bushland regeneration. We employ a broad range of group process skills and techniques for group facilitation, collaborative decision making, team building, conflict resolution and project management. We have developed various processes and structures to enable us to function effectively and to continue to learn and grow – both as a community and as individuals. We are developing sustainable enterprises that develop the healthy interplay of relationships with our environment and each other.

As a visitor or volunteer you will get to be a part of this. Ask us about community experience packages, incorporating activities such as permaculture, yoga, healthy eating, and community living.

With comfortable accommodation and well-equipped conference facilities, Bellbunya provides an inspirational environment within a rural setting that is ideal for:
* Yoga, spiritual retreats and personal awareness
* Group eco-awareness
* Permaculture and sustainable farming workshops
* Sustainable building and green technology workshops
* Community and team-building retreats
* Healthy living and cooking classes

We welcome visitors so please contact us in advance to arrange a suitable time. Receive regular updates on what we are up to by joining our email list or Facebook group.
