You’ll be walking, cycling and swimming, sampling tasty treats at our local cafés and restaurants, or simply reading and chilling out in the spacious comfort of our architect-designed retreat. 

What do others think of Griffins Hill? 

"After looking for a yoga retreat that we could drive to (from Adelaide) we found Griffins Hill and stayed for a two-day retreat, Oct 11-13. We can't recommend it highly enough. Frank is one of the best Iyenger yoga teachers I have come across and Jane is the most fabulous cook continually providing variety of delicious organic vegetarian dishes. The accommodation makes you feel so comfortable and relaxed in beautiful surroundings with the Grampians a majestic backdrop." Read full review of Griffins Hill on Trip Advisor, 100% like Griffins Hill on trip advisor (see link below).

What do others think of Griffins Hill accommodation?   "With its’ five star accommodation, Griffins Hill remains a gracious home away from home for me and I am both renewed and inspired by my retreats to this wonderfully hospitable and friendly rural sanctuary". David (see trip advisor for full review)


"Apart from the yoga sessions there are splendid surroundings to explore on foot or to appreciate from a more relaxed position. Inside the Griffins Hill homestead a sense of light and space pervades, and the guest-rooms far surpassed my humbly yogic expectations. Much has been written about the excellent food provided – I can only agree wholeheartedly with every word- and look forward to my next visit. Thank you Jane and Frank!" Matina from Greece
