“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples”
- Mother Teresa


Amara Retreat endeavours to facilitate knowledge for a sustainable future by inspiring human beings to re-ignite their love for life and nature.

— Susannah Crouch, caretaker and guardian of this piece of paradise

Waking up at Amara with the sunrise provides each day with a glorious moment of feeling lucky to be alive. Watch the mist roll over the hills and into the valley beneath the Main Retreat House as you take the path to the 100 sqm Yoga/Seminar Centre "The Heart Centre", which overlooks the expansive northerly view to the coast. 

Allow your guests to slip into meditation as the sun peaks over the hills and the new day begins with renewed aspirations. "There is a vibration here that resonates visibly with our guests. You can see stress and tension disappearing immediately, even as soon as you drive through the gates at Amara". 

The stunning Hampton's Style Retreat House offers outside areas for people to lounge and relax with light breezes and sweeping views to the North. The double daybed offering a cozy place for reading and several nooks and crannies for people to recede into privacy. 

Walk the 45 undulating acres to be surprised by grazing Kangaroos and Wallabies whilst being serenaded by Kookaburras and native birdlife. A rock balancing garden provides another meditative space amongst lush riparian forests. Swim in the 4000 sqm dam or repose in the 6 people steam sauna and a dip in the Magnesium Salt Pool to wash away any residual tension. Then, finish the day with the setting sun over the valley with a fire circle ceremony at our purpose built fire circle area. Reset, recharge and inspire. 

Amara also offers two rustic cabins and ‘Ruby Baby’ a beautiful bus, all styled by the owner to give a sense of being enveloped by nature as well as a feeling of luxury bedding and cosy comfort.

Only 7 minutes away are the world famous Eumundi Markets operating on a Wednesday and Saturday. Eumundi is a thriving small village with several cafes and restaurants offering some of the best food on the coast. And, only 10 minutes drive away you can spend some time on one of the most gorgeous beaches on the coast at Peregian Beach.

Amara also offers a host of practitioners who can make your Retreat even more memorable by offering therapies, massages, surf lessons and adventure programs.


Amara Retreat is a 45 acre property in the Noosa Hinterland. The entire property is available for hire.  Amara Retreat Facility can comfortably accommodate 16 guests twin share. The main retreat house consists of 6 twin share rooms which can also be configured into king beds. There are four bathrooms, a chef's kitchen, dining, lounge and two large verandahs for lounging. The main house faces North and has spectacular 180 degree views across to Noosa and Mount Cooroy. 

On the property there is also a 100 square meter yoga/seminar facility with the same spectacular views. 

We also have two self contained cabins which can accommodate up to 4 people each but are most comfortable as a twin share. One is completely off the grid offering solar energy and full bathroom facilities and the other is powered by electricity. They are the most charming cabins and are the epitome of tiny house living. ‘Ruby Baby’ our 1975 Leyland bus has its own area and is renovated to sleep 4 people twin share and has it's own kitchen and bathroom area.
