North Stradbroke Island (Minjerribah)

The details


Ready for a heartfelt adventure? Over 4 nights and 5 days, immerse yourself in our interactive retreat with massages, spiritual practices, self- discovery, and island adventures. Wake up in paradise with majestic views out over the Pacific ocean, bathe in turquoise waters of the pristine beaches, and embrace the Hawaiian way of living. Join us on an inward and outward journey to explore yourself immersed in the island’s spiritual power through massage, intention setting, letting go processes and sound/heart meditations. We cultivate and support a heart centred state of being in alignment with all the natural elements we visit across Straddie.

Why North Stradbroke Island (Minjerribah)
A place as natural and picturesque as it is wildly spiritual, Minjerribah, affectionately known as ‘Straddie’ offers a perfect retreat venue for heart activation and Hawaiian massage. Enjoy the natural state of living by ‘island time’ exploring the many and varied natural features. The headland beaches wrap around the point so that no matter the wind direction or the swell, a perfect beach option is almost always guaranteed. To further support Hawaiian philosophy and processes we use, the deeply sacred inland lakes, rockpools, natural springs and walking trails, gently yet profoundly inspire the natural way of life in accordance with universal truths.

The headland formations are further out in the Pacific than any of the Australian mainland, attracting all sorts of large marine life in visible view. From whales, dolphins and turtles to large manta rays and sharks, our visitors marvelled at the regular sightings. Not to forget the abundant land life, you may just catch a joey relaxing in its mother’s pouch or a cheeky Kookaburra on your deck looking for a feed.

We hold space on the sacred lands of the Quandamooka people and respect the original custodians of Minjerribah (Nth Stradbroke Island).
