Krishna Village Eco Yoga Community

About us

As an eco yoga community set on an organic farm, the Krishna Village endeavours to provide the blueprint of a simple, mindful, spiritually based lifestyle. By allowing our guests to share this experience, we propagate a wholesome (in Sanskrit: sattvic) and sustainable lifestyle that is good for all living beings and conducive to a joyous and loving attitude.

For the last few years we have been developing the Krishna Village from a completely volunteer based farming community to a retreat space for people focused on their personal development and spiritual growth. Staying at the Village will allow you to be immersed in a beautiful community of spiritual seekers from all over the world who are coming together with the intention of sharing their gifts and talents and supporting each others' learning and growth. Rather than providing a scheduled retreat program, we offer a range of classes and activities from which you can pick and choose. Thus, you are able to create your own experience and adapt your activities to your individual needs.

Society at large is becoming increasingly disconnected: more and more people suffer from stress, burnout, fatigue and chronic illness. The happiness that lies in simple experiences like feeling the grass under your bare feet, digging your hands in the soil or sitting with friends around a campfire under the stars has become a distant memory. At the Krishna Village, we aim to create such a space. So take your time, breathe, reconnect to yourself and re-evaluate your life and your priorities. To support you, we invite you to experience:

  • The simplicity of life on an organic farm

  • A delicious vegetarian diet

  • Beautiful yoga and kirtan sessions

  • Personal growth through meditation and Life Coaching

  • A peaceful and deeply spiritual temple atmosphere

If you look at the big wisdom traditions of the world, you will notice that certain values have being cherished throughout the ages, across time and space. It is our intention to live true to them and bring them out in ourselves and others:

Love: friendship, kindness, loving service and care for the Divine and all living entities: humans, animals and plants alike
Wisdom: respect, curiosity and open-mindedness, spiritual practice and personal development
Balance: sustainable living, an equilibrium between work, rest and play, giving and receiving
Congruity: aiming to align body, mind and soul, honoring our individual qualities and our personal soul journey
Gratitude: acknowledging the gifts we receive abundantly from the divine, mother nature and those around us

So get ready to slow down, connect to yourself and experience the sattvic way of life!

The spirit of the land here is tangible; a calmness, peace, and feeling of ultimate goodness pervades the atmosphere, and seeps onto your bones. This is a place where the radiant, abundant nature of life is beautifully expressed, in all it’s beauty and simplicity. The perfect place to leave the world behind and come home to yourself.

Venue Highlights

Nestled in the foothills of Mount Warning, in the heart of the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, our Hare Krishna Farm “New Govardhana” is a beautiful 1000 acre property with orchards, organic veggie gardens, cows, horses, streams and swimming holes in abundance.

From the moment when you cross the rustic wooden bridge over the Oxley River and pass through the beckoning avenue of trees which comprises the entrance to the farm, you will notice that this Vedic Yoga Sanctuary is a special place and that your soul finds peace and a sense of coming home.

New Govardhana serves as an ashram to a community of yogis who aspire to live according to their deepest vows and commitments on their path of service, spiritual contentment and happiness (Bhakti Yoga). Their service and dedication make this location a beautiful place of growth, healing and spiritual awakening.

Apart from immersing themselves into their spiritual lives, the devotees also run a school, a cow protection program, big organic gardens and orchards, and an infinite number of yogic festivals and retreats throughout the year. In this context, the Krishna Village serves as an outreach program, inviting retreat guests, course participants and spiritual seekers from all over the world and all ages to participate in the farm's activities and experience a simple, happy and wholesome lifestyle.


The Krishna Village offers single, double and twin share rooms as well as camping spots for up to about 75 people. All rooms have shared amenities.
