Gondwana Sanctuary

Click to enlarge

Gondwana Sanctuary is a residential and wildlife sanctuary which has been in existence since 1987. It is located just north of Byron Bay near the most easterly point of mainland Australia.  The Gondwana property is approximately 40 hectares, and is situated two kilometres from Tyagarah beach with wonderful views to east and west of Cape Byron and of Mount Warning. Gondwana has a quiet meditative energy, perfect for relaxing away from the stresses of the outside world.

The Gondwana community seeks to manifest an integration of community and spiritual life. Its inspiration derives in large part from a variety of eastern spiritual traditions - including that of Osho with his vision of celebration, meditation, and awakening.

We hold meditations, working bees, community meals, and other community events, and have ongoing landcare regeneration and other projects. We have an openness to personal and spiritual growth as a core value, and endeavour to achieve a harmonious balance between the individual and the community.

Gondwana currently has 14 shareholders - that is, community members who own a dwelling on one of the 10 residential sites.  In addition, there are approximately 15 guests and long-term residents.
