We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of this land. 

We would like to remember The Aboriginal people of the Brisbane River Valley and Kilcoy region who are the Jinibara People, and in particular, the Dungidau people, centred in the Kilcoy region and the junction of the Stanley and Brisbane Rivers; - these are the local People, who walked this country for thousands and thousands of years.

And we remember their descendants who still walk this land.

We invite us all to honour the spirit and the story of this land, of this country of the Jinibara and Dungidau People, and their ongoing connection and stewardship of this land upon which we are walking, sitting and reflecting.

I invite us all to pause to connect with that spirit of the land and the people and continue to honour the connection.

And I invite us all to reflect on those of this land, and our own loved ones, who have gone before us.

Archer Mountain Community

            Natural sanctuary
                        Mountain meets valley

                                    Sky touches mountain

                                                Earth nourishes human nourishes earth

The Archer Mountain Community, a place of Earth Centred Spirituality, is a space for you to take some time to reflect upon who you are and to explore where you are on your journey through life. In entering into this space you will touch your story, feel the grass between your toes, meet the mountain, smell the earth harvest and taste good food. Come for Sabbatical Time, Individual/Earth Retreats, Reflection Days, Spiritual Direction/Counselling, Daily Meditation and/or Teacher In-service opportunities. We have an ongoing calendar of retreats and workshops but can also tailor programs for individuals or groups.

Just north of Brisbane, overlooking the beautiful Stanley River Valley at the base of Mount Archer we provide an experience for you to reconnect with yourself and the Earth. Also, we provide accommodation for up to 9 people in private single rooms and cabins with a possibility of twin share and/or couple accommodation.

Our Vision:

Archer Mountain Community is grounded in earth-centered spirituality with the unfolding Universe Story as the cradle of all Sacred Stories. We recognise and celebrate the evolving consciousness of our planet and we seek a more sustainable way of living and a deepening consciousness of the sacred in our lives.
We are challenged and nurtured by:
  • Being attuned to earth’s rhythms
  • Seeking new understanding of our place in an evolving universe
  • Engaging with ‘the great work’ by responding to the cry of the earth community
  • Living interdependently and responsibly within the particular ecosystems of our places and spaces
  • Learning and applying the wisdom of the original custodians of the land
  • Experiencing hospitality and opening our hearts and spaces in gratitude for all that is
  • Reverencing and enjoying the beauty, solitude and silence that the land holds
I asked the moon what should I say and the wind said “Tell them my story”    
And I asked the wind what should I say and the wind said “Tell them my story”
And I asked the clover out on the lawn, what should I say and the clover said “Tell them my story.”
My story, the mountain story, the river story, your story, the indigenous story, the great story.....
