The Archer Retreat & Spirituality Centre
UNFORTUNATELY DUE TO COVID THE ARCHER IS NOT TAKING NEW BOOKINGS UNTIL FURTHER ADVISED - EFFECTIVE 11 JANUARY 2022
The Archer Retreat Centre, 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.
Make a personal retreat (with or without spiritual direction), join in a program on our calendar or rent the space for your own group program.
Just north of Brisbane, overlooking the beautiful Stanley River Valley at the base of Buruja (Mount Archer) we provide an experience for you to reconnect with yourself and the Earth. We provide accommodation for up to 9 people in private single rooms and cabins with a possibility of twin share and/or couple accommodation. Overflow camping may also be possible.
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.
May we 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.
We invite you to pause to connect with that spirit of the land and the people and continue to honour the connection.
And we invite you to reflect on those of this land, and our own loved ones, who have gone before us.
Archer Mountain Community
Mountain meets valley
Sky touches mountain
Earth nourishes human nourishes earth
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.....
