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 40 acres. We have organic permaculture food gardens, syntropic gardens, wildlife corridors, a creek and lagoon, a conference hall and restaurant and accommodation for up to 30 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, bushland regeneration and syntropic farming. 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 and permaculture gardening, healthy eating, and community living.
