Ara Arcadia Retreats

Ara Arcadia is Greek for: ceremony, peace and simplicity.

Over the past 3 years we have gathered regularly in sacred circles of women to catalyse our personal growth through ceremony, peace and simplicity. Over time, we’ve each developed our capacity for supporting and journeying deeply with our sisters, empowering them to be the creators of their own lives.


Ara Arcadia Retreats are an invitation for you to join our circle. An invitation to rejuvenate, reset and reconnect in a compassionate and supported environment where you can design your reality and let your evolution take place.

The complementary skills of a collective of amazing healers, creates the alchemy that makes Ara Arcadia Retreats truly transformative.

Through dance, stillness, sound vibration, silence, music, food, creative writing and exploration, you'll be guided toward deeper connection as you work gently to remove any blocks that arise.

Nature therapy clears the mind and creates space for new perspectives, boosts creativity and enhances problem-solving abilities. The meditational ebb and flow of the tides of the nearby beach and river, calms the mind, lowering anxiety and stress, reducing headaches, and lifting depression.

Turtle Reefs offers a magnificent, architectural designed tri-level home and luxury retreat to relish in the isolation of being the only footsteps on the beach and immerse in the crystal clear waters of the Coral Sea.


Set on over 300 acres of pristine coastal forest, the spoils of today's world are at your fingertips in the gourmet kitchen and tea bar along with a firelit rooftop bar to absorb the herbal teas, yoga, ocean, sun and stars.

Women's Circle with Nita

What Our Customers Say

Women's circles have always been a source of nourishment and depth over the years, but never in my life have I so immediately felt like part of the family!!


The weaving of such down to earth, yet daringly open, women in Agnes had me feeling astounded, humbled, challenged and totally nurtured. By the end of the retreat I had experienced such a change across my mind soul and body - all levels were utterly satisfied and had been catered for with such thought and love.


I returned home with treasures both physical and internal that carried me joyfully for many moons after, and still now feel I have been welcomed into new and inspiring dimensions, which continue to unfold...highly, highly recommended. What a gift!!

"warm heart flows,

glows with embers live.

I hear the whisperings,

always conversing,

as I stop and tune in

I can hear...

well come Sister. "
