Bellbunya Mist
Bellbunya is a living, breathing community of people committed to increasing our own and the planet's consciousness. We're 25 min  from Noosa, 10 min from Eumundi train station on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland in Queensland. Australia.  Get a taste of community life as a visitor or a volunteer, or allow us to host your next conference, retreat or workshop. Limited positions with private en-suite rooms available for new community members  committed to natural living. Learn with us by doing and sharing, or participate in a course. We host workshops and courses on permaculture, yoga, holistic health, sustainable design, alternative economics, group processes and more.

Bellbunya is owned by a not-for-profit association (also a tax-deductible gift recipient). It's set up as an intentional community on 16 hectares (40 acres). We have organic food gardens, wildlife corridors, a creek and lagoon, a conference hall and restaurant and accommodation for up to 25 guests. The Centre is run on 100% renewable energy through our 7.2kva solar panel system and by buying wind farm energy.

Bellbunya was established in 2008 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. Our approach to caring for the earth uses permaculture principles, including 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 growing sustainable enterprises that develop the healthy interplay of relationships with our environment and each other.

As a community member, visitor or volunteer you will get to be a part of this. Enjoy your community experience, which will incorporate activities such as organic gardening, healthy eating, and community living.

With comfortable private  accommodation, a registered commercial kitchen 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 sustainability 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.  

Bellbunya has a new lease of life.  We have some amazing committed talented residents who offer healing therapies and permaculture experiences for short, long term stays and workshops.
