Springmount Eco Retreat is a genuine
off grid retreat that is fully self contained.
We accomodate up to 12 people comfortably.
Please read the information below to ensure Springmount is suitable for your group
From $500/per night
(minimum of 2 nights stay)
Our retreat is designed on sustainable living principles using open space for natural heating and cooling.
The concept of Springmount Retreat requires you to share in communal living spaces. Setting the fire, preparing meals, cleaning up and practicing yoga are activities shared by everyone.
We believe our retreat is a special place to commune, we invite you to bring your favourite games and activities (eg - a guitar).
We encourage a technology free haven to bring people together. A variety of games are on hand.
Our retreat is home to many native birds and animals.
Kangaroos often graze and relax a few metres from the premises and eagles soar on the ridgetop. We believe we are guardians of this land and would like all visitors to equally respect this amazing place and enjoy the 90 acres of conservation park.
