With Spring now upon us, the Biome team are excited to get out in nature and explore some of our favourite local escapes to relax, rejuvenate and be inspired. Here is where we are headed.
Tallow Beach, NSW
Courtney favourite natural escape is Tallow Beach, near Byron Bay in New South Wales. She loves how calm and at peace it makes her feel. In fact the Byron Bay region is well known for evoking feelings of peace, tranquility, healing and rejuvenation, and one of the reasons why Olivia Newton-John decided on that region to develop her internationally acclaimed, award winning Gaia Retreat & Spa and skin care range, Retreatment Botanics. We are also pleased to now offer the full Retreatment Botanics range for you to enjoy.
Retreatment Botanics is pure age defying skincare of the highest quality. Toxin free, palm oil free, vegan and cruelty free, Retreatment Botanics is luxurious to use, with natural and organic active ingredients brimming with life. Retreatment Botanic's daily rituals remind and guide us to surrender our stress, relax our emotions, inspire our spirit, love and appreciate our bodies. Taking a little time every day to nurture our precious self, helps us to stay poised, centred and calm, with more joy to share with others and, importantly, for ourselves.

Carolyn's favourite spot is Uki in the Tweed Valley. Surrounded by trees that roar like the ocean when it is windy, and hills that are perfect for a meditating mindful escape. Carolyn loves walking through paddocks with her KeepCup of hot tea, pausing to spy a goanna in the grass, finches in the bushes and heading to the fruit trees for hand picked oranges after breakfast, collected in a Biome string bag.
Biome 100% GOTS certified organic cotton mesh bag is perfect for collecting hand picked citrus and other produce, shopping at markets or for use as a day bag. It is lightweight and easily foldable, making it perfect for carrying with you everywhere.

Booloumba Creek, QLD

Mia loves the Booloumba Creek area of Conondale National Park in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. There is a beautiful freshwater creek to swim in, and waking up to the sound of birds and the smell of the rainforest is one of the best feelings ever! Hiking through Conondale National Park is a treat too, with elaborate bower bird nests and other animals to spot.
Don't forget to pack your reusable water bottle if you're going for a hike. The Cheeki 1.6L stainless steel water bottle is loved by our customers for it's size, features and the fact it is so lightweight.

Michele's favourite spot for a quick natural escape is to Burleigh Heads on Queensland's Gold Coast. Wandering through the Burleigh Heads National Park will allow you to explore a living museum of plants, and you might even spot a humpback whale if it's the right time of year! Finish the walk off with a chilled picnic on Burleigh foreshore relax on Echo Beach.
