Blue Green Sanctuary, 320 Picadilly Hill Rd, Newrybar NSW 2479

We are delighted to invite you to join Yummify’s vegan cooking retreat.

Held in one of my favorite destinations, the lush, tropical oasis of The Blue Green Sanctuary in Newrybar. Nestled in the hills twelve minutes outside Byron, the Blue Green Sanctuary invokes this overflowing beauty into five acres of paradise. A sanctuary that imparts serenity with its sublime landscaping, rolling lawns, gazebo over the lake, terraces and nooks, swings in the rainforest and wild ducks on the lake.

The Blue Green Sanctuary

The dream was to create a sanctuary to host health retreats and family holidays with a selection of accommodation options and a yoga shala that merged with the environment and reflect the casual Byron Bay lifestyle.  Handcrafted details enhance the sense of being part of nature; humble materials have been recycled, salvaged and re-imagined in unexpected ways that celebrate a spirit of creativity. A fusion of art and function, distilled to an ethos of simple luxury that nourishes the soul.
