Maitripa Centre hosts courses and conferences on interfaith, meditation, yoga, martial arts, philosophy, the arts and the helping professions. Located in the heart of the beautiful Upper Yarra Valley, Maitripa Centre is an hour and a quarter easy drive from the Melbourne CBD. Surrounded by hundreds of acres of State and National forest, Maitripa Centre's 53 acres of forest and well established gardens are an ideal venue for retreats, workshops and conferences.
Maitripa Centre boasts a rich diversity of native Australian wildlife, the grounds being home to numerous wombats, wallabies, a wide variety of colourful parrots, including the beautiful green and red King Parrot. The grounds also host a number of rare and elusive Lyrebirds, famous for their extraordinary ability to mimic almost any sound; animal, bird or mechanical! You might even catch a glimpse of the occasional deer that live in the dense forest surrounding the retreat centre. The delights of the Yarra Valley's wineries, restaurants and the Healesville Wildlife Sanctuary are all within a few minutes drive.
