The Gaia Story

From the humble beginnings of a shared vision between four close friends, a magical creation was set in motion as the dream of Gaia Retreat and Spa was brought to life in the stunning surrounds of Bunjalung Country, the healing heartland of Australia.

“When I first stood upon the land that has become Gaia’s home, I knew it was a very special place. I felt an incredible energy – it was so powerful.”

G.R.O.W

Co-founded in 2005 by Gregg Cave, Ruth Kalnin, Olivia Newton-John and Warwick Evans, aptly and affectionately known as G.R.O.W, Gaia Retreat and Spa has become one of Australia’s most awarded lifestyle and wellness retreats and internationally renowned as a global leader in personalised health and wellbeing.

A place of Heart

Gregg, Ruth, Warwick and Olivia, set out to create a place of heart, a laidback-meets-luxe home away from home, where guests could indulge in a personalised wellness experience and own their own journey – to refocus, rebalance and truly restore.

Our Philosophy

The Gaia philosophy of Gratitude, Respect, Organic and Wellness (G.R.O.W) carries through in all that we do and sixteen years on, our journey continues with our commitment to supporting every guest’s wellness journey.
