The 400 acre property “Murrindal” is located near Cann River in east Gippsland, just under 5 hrs drive from Melbourne. The property is a mixture of regenerating and old growth forest including pockets of threatened warm temperate rainforest along the Bemm River and Goolengook Rivers.

The property is surrounded by several of Victoria’s most untouched, extensive and remote National Parks including Errinundra National Park (27,000 ha) just 15 minutes drive north and Croajingalong National Park (90,000 ha) 30 mins to the south.

Nature Based Therapies

Murrindal was purchased with the vision of providing a flagship location for conducting and researching nature-based therapies. The location provides unique opportunities for immersive nature-based activities surrounded by stunning views, abundant wildlife, fresh air and secure surrounds.  

Murrindal is in a remote area of Victoria hence offering peace and tranquillity largely undisturbed from human sounds and visual interruptions. As such the property is entirely off-grid with solar generated power and hot water, wood fired and gas cooking and rainwater.


Our Programs Include:

Rustic Well-being

The house made of rustic bridge timbers, is surrounded by approximately 40 acres of cleared land offering opportunities for a range of activities including hammock star gazing, fireside cooking and storytelling, yoga and meditation, wildlife spotlighting, birdwatching, gardening, group games and …..or just taking in the beautiful view of the Combienbar Mountains.

Cabins and a camp kitchen are located a short walk from the main house and offer beautiful easterly views.
