  • About Us

    Bathurst Retreat is a privately owned venue on 250 acres of Australian bush on the Macquarie River located just outside the City of Bathurst, NSW.


    Owners Robbie and Steve host various groups for workshops and retreats, offering you the chance to partake in guided art or wellness lessons with experienced teachers. Across the year, and with the changing seasons, we tailor our programs to suit everyone, both novices and experienced students.


    Our hosted stays include accommodation and meals so you can truly relax and spend time exploring your creative side, going for beautiful walks or just sitting down at the river.


    Whatever the season, our philosophy is for you to relax, be comfortable, enjoy the scenery and be in harmony with nature. We love to look after you and are rewarded when you go home feeling healthier and refreshed.

    Bathurst Retreat can suit many requirements for relaxation. Andrew Meers came with his partner who joined an Art workshop with Chan Dissanayake.

    Andrew was happy to relax, walk, swim kayak and practise his saxophone. This also delighted the others who painted or walked on the site whilst the beautiful music wafted through the trees.
