Event description


We gather on Bundjalung land to return.

We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land and pay our respects to all peoples past and present.

You are invited to return to wholeness, to nature, to knowledge, to ourselves and to one another though a series of workshops, discussions & community empowerment.

The Returning is an one day women’s gathering, empowering each other and creating skills that we can intergrate back into our life to help heal ourselves and the world.

The Returning is a gathering that happens in the Byron Shire four times a year.

It is a weaving of women from all over the globe. A global conference of maidens, mothers, queens and crones.


~ Autumn Returning ~

Come together to celebrate the Summers end and prepare for Winter months ahead. The Sun and earth fall into more stillness and less light is upon us as we are asked to go inward for reflection as winter begins.

A time to celebrate the darkness that awaits.

Time to embrace the Shadow side, the Dark mysteries of the Earth adn ourselves.

A time to honour our ancestors.

A time to let go.

Release the wild women, let us meet our edge, learn, go inward and spread ideas for how to handle the winter.




Explore movement, rituals and wellness, along with discussions on topics thats need addressing, as we come together as sisters to learn from elders, mother and maidens.

A one day event for female identifying woman located in the lush nature surroundings of Mt Jerusalum.

Cradled in the arms of Mumma, we will explore movement, rituals and wellness, along with discussions and panels on topics thats need addressing.

A combination of creation and clarity as we come together as sisters to learn from elders, maidens and mothers.

This all ages event is curated for women, by women.

The Land:

The Returning will be held on on the border of Mt. Jerusalem National Park, Bundjalung land just outside of Byron Bay. Enjoy amazing views over the treetops, through the valley to the ocean. Come and embrace an abundance of native wildlife on the grounds which boast a spring fed dam, creek, waterfall and a Zen archery dojo.

An ‘off the grid’ country retreat offering great privacy, whilst being only 20 minutes from Mullumbimby, 35 minutes from Byron Bay and less than an hour’s drive to Gold Coast International Airport.



We gather on Bundjalung land to return. Combining Woman's Business during the day with a night time celebration of sisters whos voices will light up the mountain with music.

Woman will heal, learn, laugh, move, be heard and create together. A event that calls us to return to our bodies, our health and each other.

Through movement, talks, workshops and music we retrace our steps from our ancestors to rewrite our new paradigm of living. A new way of connecting.
