Experience tailored NDIS Respite with Byron Bay Retreats — an exclusive escape where your social, emotional and physical well-being takes center stage.

What is Short Term Accommodation or Respite?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) states that Short Term Accommodation (or STA), also known as respite, is funding for support and accommodation for a short time away from your usual home. It covers the cost of your care in another place for up to 14 days at a time. You might have a short stay with other people, or by yourself.

What is Respite or STA for?

A short stay away from home can:

  • Help you to relax and enjoy recreational activities

  • Meet new people and make new friends

  • Try out new things and activities

  • Experience new scenery

  • Get you out of your comfort zone

  • Develop a greater sense of independence

  • What’s the difference between Byron Bay Detox Retreats and other retreats?
    Byron Bay Detox Retreats provides a beautiful, natural sanctuary among 30 hectares of native bushland, and fronting onto the turquoise waters of Tallows Beach, which is the ideal environment for you to rejuvenate your body, mind and soul. All of our therapists are fully trained and qualified with years of experience and are personally committed to you. They are hand-picked to ensure all of our treatment options are world-class. We keep our numbers small so that you can receive personalised care, nurturing and support from our team. We only use organic produce, sourced locally where possible, and our cold-pressed juices are of the highest quality. Seminars and educational tools are given to you so you can implement a healthier regime when you return to your every day life. Byron Bay Detox Retreats believes in holistic approach, focusing not only on the physical but also on your mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing, allowing the space for your transformation, growth and healing to occur.
  • What makes Byron Bay Detox Retreats such a life changing experience?
    Most people think that disease and ailing health are simply an inescapable and unpredictable part of life. What they don’t know is that good health and radiant wellbeing are possible, starting from now. Detoxifying the body is a powerful way to help bring your mind, body and soul back into balance and wellbeing. It gives your body the capability to detoxify itself – as your body is your friend and strives for your good health, but can only use what you give it to work with. Most bodies have, for years, been dealing with processed and fatty foods, chemicals from tap water and common household products, as well as possible toxic waste produced by intestinal parasites. Completing a detoxification program at Byron Bay Detox Retreats effectively gives your body the boost it needs to start performing more efficiently. This is why people using our program often experience increased energy, weight loss, a feeling of regained youthfulness and improved physical and emotional health. Going from a life of sluggishness to a life of strength, revitalisation and a general feeling of wellbeing is truly a life-changing event. When you start feeling better, you start taking better care of your body. Then you can reap the positive mental, emotional and spiritual rewards that are truly limitless. Before you know it, you have changed your life for the better and can continue making positive affirmations for a living healthier, happier and longer.
  • Where is Byron Bay Detox Retreats located?
    At Byron Bay Detox Retreats, you stay in a selection of luxurious and rustic cottages that are dotted among 30 hectares of tea tree-strewn native bushland that fronts onto the turquoise waters of Tallows Beach, just south of Australia’s most easterly point, Cape Byron. The centre is equipped with a colonic hydrotherapy machine, treatment rooms, infrared sauna and a pyramid-like yoga shala for yoga, meditation and sound healing sessions. You can be assured of a tranquil, negative-ion rich sanctuary to assist your purification journey. Only the sounds of nature, such as the kookaburras’ delight at breaking waves, accompany you on during the tranquil journey of restoring internal balance to your body in this sub-tropical paradise. Heritage bushwalks, beach paths, protected swimming areas, sites of indigenous significance and bird watching vantage points are all at the retreat centre’s footstep.
  • Can I have my own room?
    Yes, everyone who stays at Byron bay Detox retreats has their own room. If booking a room with its ensuite is important to you, we encourage you to book well in advance to ensure that your first preference is available. Depending on which retreat you decide to attend, the availability of rooms vary. Typically, you might stay in a renovated, timber-floored cottage with bedroom, living room, kitchenette and decking, where you have privacy and solitude, and you would share an ensuite with a neighbour.
  • How can I prepare for my retreat?
    We will send out pre-cleanse information once a booking is made. These guidelines will ease the transition in to your detox and minimise any side effects.
  • How do I get to Byron Bay Detox Retreats?
    You can fly in to either Ballina/Byron airport (about 30 minutes’ drive away) or Coolangatta airport (about a one-hour drive away). There are shuttle buses that will bring you directly to the retreat centre – $20 from Ballina/Byron airport or $40 from Coolangatta airport. Once you have booked your retreat, we will send you information on how to book an airport shuttle.
  • Do you have a payment plan?
    You attending one of our retreats and commencing a purifying journey towards a healthier, happier self is important to us, so if you are having difficulties in making payment within the required period, speak to us and we will endeavour to assist you.
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    All payments made, including deposits, are non-refundable and changes to your booking will incur cancellation or postponement fees. However, we want you to undertake a detoxifying journey with us, so any credit will be held on your behalf for you to use at a subsequent retreat within 12 months of the original booking. Please refer to our T & Cs for more information.
