Who we are...
Govinda Valley is a retreat project that has been enthusiastically serving the Australian and International community since 2006. Our aim is to provide a relaxing, nurturing and nourishing space for all our guests. Not only do we host clients from the yoga, meditation and wider spiritual community; we also welcome diverse social, community and business/ corporate groups. We can arrange a conference or commercial event with a difference – one that is vested in good health and well-being.
Govinda Valley takes sustainability and environmental welfare seriously. We do our best to minimise our impact on the environment and are constantly finding ways to keep on improving. We are self-reliant in regards to our water, using purified rainwater from our tanks for drinking and cooking and other collected water for our showers and washing. We grow as much of our food as we can in our organic gardens and try and make everything we need through recycling and upcycling.
We care for our own vegetable gardens and flower beds and pass our knowledge on to others by developing an educational centre, where people can learn sustainable and eco-friendly gardening methods such as permaculture. We are advised in these efforts by Milkwood, who are one of our regular clients.
