Diptipur has its origins as a family home, constructed with mud-brick, and grown with love and the joyful creativity of family life, on land regenerated with forest trees, and with birds that delight with their joyous song. A place to be shared.
Welcome to Diptipur. Diptipur is located in the hills of Bangalow, the hinterland of Byron Bay. Diptipur provides a place for rest and reflection, with its primary purpose for retreat functions, including writers, artists, yoga, healing, spiritual and women’s groups. Diptipur has hosted red tent weekends for women, book groups and yoga retreats. The warmth and creative energy of the place endears itself for reflection and rejuvenation. Its ambience tinkers with the soul in the most beautiful way.
The place is also ideal for family groups who are simply needing a restful time. Throughout holiday time, Diptipur is available for short term possibilities.
