Amarant retreat catering
1475 Don Road, Yarra Valley, VIC 3136
what a great weekend I had!
I had a pleasure of catering for a workshop at Amarant retreat near healsville. such an amazing place...
This retreat is set in lush mountain ash forest, next to Yarra Ranges National park. totally secluded and is the perfect location to relax, unwind. The view from Dining and commune living area is just stunning, so cozy with beautiful wood heater warming up the rooms, hearing parrots and cockatoos in the morning. The place is very eco friendly with all the double grazed windows and their rain water tanks. Their drinking water is so clean and delicious as well. They have been planting herbs, vegetables around the house.
They run workshops and different amazing events through out the year.
