  • About The Host

Wybalena is a stunning 170 acre organic farm located in the Byron Bay Shire. We are available to host retreats, functions and special events. We are a purpose built retreat centre with a yoga studio, infrared sauna, magnesium swimming pool and architecturally designed accommodation. The natural beauty, serenity and privacy of our property make it ideally suited for yoga, meditation and wellness retreats.

The first thing most people notice is a stress-relieving relaxation of the muscles. Tension melts away and the deep penetrating warmth is very soothing on aches and pains. Also felt is the benefit of a healthy cleansing sweat that purifies the body and improves circulation. After the first session most people notice clearer skin and a more restful sleep.

From the very first time you jump into a MagnaPool you can feel the difference. The water has a gentle, silky feeling against your skin. There is little or no irritation to your eyes and your hair won’t need washing to get rid of that chlorine smell or sticky salt feeling associated with chlorine and saltwater pools. Magnesium Chloride is absorbed through the skin at a cellular level. This extremely important mineral can aid in the reduction of stress, anxiety, aches and pains and provides your muscles with energy. It also plays a vital part in detoxifying the body.

Recently renovated! With smooth oak floors and beautiful views overlooking the private valleys of Wybalena the yoga hall is the perfect setting for groups to gather. The hall comfortably holds 20 yoga mats or 30 chairs and includes air conditioning, kitchenette and bathroom.

Delicious meals can be created from our large kitchen which combines country warmth with commercial functionality. It includes double sinks, generous bench tops, two fridges, two ovens and two dishwashers. We encourage our guests to enjoy the various walking trails through the natural habitat of our farm. The trails are kept short for easy navigation and peace of mind. We have walks ranging from 10 to 40 minutes return.

Raz & Julian Mateer

Wybalena was purchased in 2014 by brothers Raz and Julian Mateer. They had previously studied and worked in a number of fields including finance, public service, renewable energy, and permaculture. It had been a long standing dream of theirs to own land in the Byron Shire and create a sanctuary where they could share their passions of organic farming, sustainability, health and wellbeing.
