A unique accommodation experience surrounded by nature

Inside Dome 700x350

Imagine staying somewhere different, with unique accommodation that’s away from the hustle and bustle, surrounded by the bush and native wildlife and all without having to travel too far from town.

Weltevreden Domes Retreat is situated just one hour from Brisbane and Toowoomba, 45 mins from Ipswich and 1.5 hours from the Sunshine Coast on the outskirts of the quaint country township of Esk. Overlooking Lake Wivenhoe, our retreat offers unique geodesic dome accommodation to help reduce your stress levels and allow you to relax.

The geodesic dome shape is a highly structured space that copies the fundamental geometry of creation to enhance the relaxation process.

Relax at the retreat with short walks, a swim in the pool or relax with a good book. You can also take the opportunity to experience the beauty of Queensland’s Somerset Region.

Wallabies, koalas and lorikeets all visit the retreat throughout the day, particularly in spring and summer. You may even spot the odd kangaroo or even our local symbol, the Red Deer roaming through the bush.

Book a night or two online with our Bed & Breakfast option or book a yoga retreat. It’s entirely up to you.

You won’t believe it’s so close to town when you’ll feel so far away from it all.
