Individual Retreats

We have three self-contained cabins overlooking the East Macdonnell Ranges that are available for personal, self-directed retreats.

You’ll enjoy the sound of the birds, the desert colours at dawn and dusk, and the bright stars in the evening sky.

CABIN 3 – Restful Hermitage

Retreat, reflect and renew the spirit in this private hermitage (with ensuite), located within the desert meditation centre of Campfire in the Heart.
