Gunnebah accommodates all guests in private rooms in our charming mudbrick bungalows. All rooms open out onto covered patios, with outdoor furniture and native gardens. Each room is simple, clean and attractive with comfortable beds and storage space. Bedrooms have ceiling fans but not air conditioning. Heaters are provided in winter. Bathrooms and toilets are shared. 

Gunnebah hall

Hall

Our spacious hall is 180 sq metres with ample windows giving air and light, great acoustics, ceiling fans and a wood fire.

This is usually where we have yoga classes, group fitness, boxing fitness and activities such as African drumming. See some of our activities on our program page.

The hall’s large, magnificent wooden doors open up to a level space for outdoor activities, leading down to a magical creek (home to turtles and platypus) and an outdoor fire pit.

Lounge & Dining

Gunnebah’s lounge and dining area is its ‘community’ hub. Built away from the hall and accommodation, to create a separate social space, it is perfect for chatting, listening to music, games, reading and dining. Built from mud bricks, with an exquisite stained-glass window, it holds great charm and character.

Our outdoor eating area provides diners with a relaxed, natural environment overlooking the garden. Spaces include year-round ‘indoor/outdoor’ enclosed and weatherproof dining areas.

Inside, there is an ample servery area, a hot drink station, and a lounge area with comfortable couches, fireplace, coffee table, an interesting library (with everything from novels to self-help books) and a DVD collection.

gunnebah labyrinth

Labyrinth

We have a five circuit labyrinth, modelled on the ancient labyrinth at the cathedral of Chartres, in France. Labyrinth walking is an ancient practice used by many different traditions for reflection, contemplation, and prayer. Some people find it a helpful way to tap into new insights or ideas, especially for a deep question that you may have or an intention that you may wish to set. At the entrance to the labyrinth, bring the question to mind and ask yourself to be open to whatever may come up as you walk the labyrinth. And then, putting the question aside, walk the labyrinth slowly and mindfully allowing whatever arises. You can read more about labyrinths at the Veriditas website.

Gunnebah lawn and trees

Walks

Walk through lush fields or along our quiet street, passing contented cows, streams and natural forest. As a no-through-road, it has little traffic.

A short drive away are beautiful beaches and national parks to visit, including Springbrook and Wollumbin (Mt Warning).
