Olivia Newtown John's Gaia Retreat & Spa
17:30 AEST Sat May 25 2013
Olivia Newton John's Gaia Retreat & Spa is one of her big passions in life. In Greek mythology, Gaia is the primal goddess of the earth, and her property is all about surrendering yourself to its beauty and healing cultures.
Just 20 minutes from Ballina Airport and 15 minutes from the centre of Byron Bay in northern New South Wales, Gaia is on the highest point of the Byron Shire and has a wonderful outlook across rolling green hills.
Olivia and her close friend Gregg Cave launched their dream retreat in 2005. Natalie met Olivia for an update on Gaia and one of the first things she saw was how huge the tree Catriona planted in 2006 now is. There are 2500 trees on the 10 hectares and it’s something all visitors are invited to add to.
