Permaculture Sunshine Coast

Permaculture Sunshine Coast Community, Noosa Hinterland.

We are beautifully nestled in the lush forested foothills of Mothar mountain in the subtropical Noosa hinterland town of Kin Kin on the Sunshine Coast Queensland Australia. This area has  been awarded Biosphere Status by the UN, meaning it is one of the most bio diverse natural settings in the world. Noosa Forest Retreat has 162 acres of lush and fertile subtropical forest surrounded by National Park, and is a haven for Sunshine Coast permaculture and sustainable living. The property is proudly  home to some rare old growth forest and a beautiful seasonal fresh water stream emerging directly from the national park onto the property.

Permaculture Sunshine Coast Community Gardens

We have developing food systems designed with permaculture knowledge that incorporate veggies, leafy greens, fruits, medicinal herbs, and fruit forestry. We focus on the health of the soil and the ecosystem to cultivate the tastiest and most nutrient-dense food. We catch and store rainwater in tanks for pure drinking water, and dams to increase biodiversity and ensure water security for the dry seasons.

Be a part of this growing Sunshine Coast permaculture community living project by volunteering through our work-exchange program, visiting, or attending a weekend course. Seem more on our community on our community living page.  We currently have four staff with a Permaculture Design Course Certificate (PDC), so if you are interested in being immersed in the blooming permaculture movement, Noosa Forest Retreat is the place to be.
