Formerly known as our Secret Garden Festival... we have evolved in inspiring ways!!
We are honored to host you at our Mudbrick Home, in the hills, off–grid and surrounded by nature, serenity and exquisite birdsong. This is so much more than a Festival, it feels like coming home to your family in the forest. Lyrebird Retreat offers a community space to share, grow and be inspired... a haven to remember and express your soul song.
This is a full weekend of Heart Food, Body Nourishment and Ignition of your Soul Vision. Bring your gifts, explore your creations or just come… breathe, dance.
“ I experienced more connections in 24hrs than in 7 days at Burning Man. Every conversation I had was an unexpected inspiring story that engaged my curiosity. I left feeling recharged which is highly unusual after a Festival! ”
— Carl Billy | Artist @coastalfornication
“ Hello to the beautiful organisers of the Secret Garden Festival. My partner Aaron and my best mate Karlie attended the festival on the weekend. We were blown away by the event. What a beautiful space you have created. We all left on Sunday afternoon with a great feeling of community and connection. You should be all proud of yourselves for creating this space for people - it is so needed. See you next time. ”
— Melanie Nicholson, Newcastle
