Nestled next to a national park and amongst the rainforest, Kondalilla Eco Resort is a magnificent place to hold a Conference, Retreat, Workshop or Concert. Our beautifully renovated building, Picnic Creek, lining the rainforest and overlooking a large pond, provides an ideal event venue. For over thirty years, the owner Gene Thompson has been involved in facilitating and participating in running mind body retreats. Long before Gene acquired the property in January 2015, he and his partner Janet have had a personal experience with the formerly known resort, Treehouses, utilising many times as a retreat venue.
Kondalilla Eco Resort is an ideal place for collaborative sharing of ideas, as the surroundings are secluded and reflective, and offer a haven to come away from every day life and make the most out of. The benefit to hosting a conference with us is the accommodation available onsite, with guest rooms in just one part of the property able to cater for up to 44 person group, twin share; plus full catering facilities including a commercial kitchen for you or your caterer to prepare your event meals. Choosing Kondalilla Eco Resort to host your next event offers a blank canvas for you to design your conference or private function to meet the needs of your group. We wish to encourage teachers and facilitators to consider the suitability of our Resort for their programs as we are keen to build the reputation of our Resort as a prime function location.

I would like to thank you soooo much for making my Earth Healing Retreat the best ever!
I was so impressed with the assistance, clarity and professionalism given so freely, by yourself especially and your lovely staff.
We were made to feel so welcome from beginning to end. All the participants felt it as did my lovely ‘foodie’ Di’anne.
I would also like to highly recommend your venue as the perfect place to host a retreat. I just loved the grounds, the restaurant, the kitchen and the magical teaching venue Picnic Creek. The venue had everything and more that I desired to host my event.
I love the facilities and energy of Kondalilla Eco Resort. The Picnic Creek Event Room provides the perfect setting for group work and healing, looking out over the picturesque trees and pond with everything a facilitator could need provided by the resort. The Treehouse accommodation rooms are equally beautiful and cosy with the log fires and beautiful surroundings. Jacqui and her team are efficient, friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them which is why I shall continue to use Kondalilla Resort for my retreats.”
I felt a need to express a little more fully my deep appreciation to you, Janet, and Gene and Jodie for the week just passed.
Your attention to detail and particular care of everyone and everything from even before the retreat started, was beautiful. Your introduction, carried a particular care of bringing everyone on board with the need to feel safe and I felt it set the tone for the openness and trust that was so palpable in the group.
This retreat, being our second one, took our relationship to a new level of openness and intimacy which I never believed possible. As you know, both Chris and I have been practising meditation for nearly 40 years and are very committed to the fulfillment and journey of Spirit in this life. What I found on this retreat was the power of the physical exercises, movements, and Kundalini meditations. I felt their potency in bringing about clarity, balance and harmony in my body and mind which left me with a great stillness, peace and presence. Coupling that with Diana Richardson’s teaching and applying it to our lovemaking was profound.
There is something magic about coming to a place where everyone who is involved in the running and organising of the event is so warm, loving and attentive. That wasn’t just the three of you, but also the caterers, reception staff , the gardener…etc
It certainly makes you feel at home.
