Visiting Ontos is a chance to pause and relax amidst the timeless serenity of the mountains and forests. It
is also a great starting point for exploring the Snowy River and its national park, the Alpine National Park, the
Buchan Caves and even the beach at Lakes Entrance which is only an hour away.
We are both teachers and active practitioners of yoga. We adhere to the Integral Yoga philosophy and teach in the style of Sri Swami Sivananda. This is a classical style of yoga that encompasses all branches – Raja (including hatha), Bhakti, Karma and Jnana.
Ontos Farm is conducive for a peaceful contemplative experience. It has many walking tracks through the bush or around the farm which guests can use for silent contemplation, walking meditation or just walking to enjoy and reflect on the beauty of the bush, the wildlife and the fresh mountain air.
There is a variety of accommodation options at SIBA, the Tibetan Buddhist retreat centre next door to us which can be booked through Airbnb.
Come and join us – combine your stay with the opportunity to practice/begin your yoga journey in a peaceful pristine atmosphere.
Fred is a very dedicated and knowledgeable gardener and delights in growing good healthy organic food. We have an extensive vegetable garden which produces seasonal vegetables all year round. We also have an extensive orchard with many varieties of apple, stone fruits and citrus. We also grow avocados which took a while to establish but now produce a large amount of fruit.
Any extra produce is sold through the local food co-operative or through a fruit and vegetable shop in
Bairnsdale (our closest shopping town).
