Flinders Peak + Bunjil Geoglyph

You Yangs Regional Park (Ude Youang/Wurdi Youang)

What does it mean to live from a place of deep connection?

Our journey through Wathaurong country will guide us to the granite peaks and panoramic views of Flinders Peak, as we gaze over the volcanic plains greeting the ocean. River red and yellow gums line the rocky trail hugged by boulders of the ancients who seem to change colour with the light. As we descend to the exposed plains below, through valleys of forest, we greet Bunjil, a rock art sculpture in the form of an eagle, the creator spirit. Together we will rediscover our inner creator, and emerge invigorated and reconnected. (Sneak peek the trail here ).

Our day retreats draw on yoga, meditation, mindful hiking, nature interpretation and ecology, seasonal bushfood and re-wilding practices, Join us, and rediscover yourself in the wild.

* Moderate hiking grade: General level walking on well-made trails. Uneven surfaces are present (rocks, tree roots, leaf litter etc). Some peaks with decent incline and large steps. Slippery surfaces at times, particularly after rain. Some level of walking fitness and sturdy footing required.  (Sneak peek the trail here ).

Note: This is not a "walk in the park" :) As with all hikes in wilderness areas, the walking trails will of course be unpaved. As such, all hikes (including those categoried as 'easy') will have plentiful uneven ground, rough, slippery and undulating surfaces. This is the wild after all! If you have any concerns about the trail, or any injuries or illnesses which you'd like to discuss, please feel free to contact us (there is also a place to provide this info during online registration).

With wholehearted gratitude for country, spirit, and its people, throughout the lands on which we live, teach, and practice, we respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Owners, their cultures, knowledge, and their continuing care for their country. We pay respect to their Elders past, present, and future. Sovereignty was never ceded.
