I have worked in the drug and alcohol treatment sector for a decade across various organisations, treatment centres, and boards. In my time working with The Banyans, they have stood out among all Australian centres in the AOD field that I have come across, most especially in terms of holistic care and valuing the dignity of each human person. I have witnessed the commitment and genuine concern they have given to all clients we have worked with together, whilst providing an outstanding service in a stunning facility and location.

I cannot speak highly enough of the staff at the Banyans. Their level of knowledge, experience, professionalism and confidentiality, teamed with great people skills, humour and sense of positivity and fun made my stay both a therapeutic and extremely enjoyable experience. Testimonial
Along with working with The Banyans for several clients, I also had the privilege of spending two days at their main facility. During this stay I observed the treatment and service provided to current clients, and was able to participate and view several services that were on offer, including equine therapy and music therapy.

I could not recommend The Banyans highly enough, especially for those seeking a highly confidential wellness retreat following a life crisis, or a re-start after a relapse. This truly is a place for interior healing. In my professional opinion, The Banyans has been and continues to be a spectacular service for high functioning individuals, seeking to resolve any emotional or mental health issues. Testimonial

I am thankful that I came and the changes that I have progressed through and the guidance that I have been given to love a happy, healthy and productive life.

The Banyans have succeeded to create an environment that provides the services, security and privacy to fulfil all your therapeutic needs. They also have created a setting that encompasses warmth, nourishment, compassion and feels like a 'home away from home'- and that is truly special! Testimonial
The Banyans is a slice of heaven, offering respite and a place of healing, surrounded by beauty, elegance, and smiling faces. The food was absolutely incredible, I wanted to poach their chef. The entire team were warm, kind and professional. Testimonial
How do I explain The Banyans? At the start, I wasn't well. I was down, depressed, anxious and not in a good place. I was at home saying that I needed help. I googled the best rehab retreat place in Australia and the Banyans came up. I had never heard of The Banyans but my first point of call was directly with the Director, Ruth. I was not in a great state of health, mentally or physically, and said that I needed help. She replied reminding me that I am worthy, I am a good person and told me that The Banyans could help. I then made the hardest decision of my life - going to get help. I describe it as the hardest decision of my life because when you're in that state, it's hard to accept that you need help. From the moment I arrived at The Banyans, I was treated with the most comfort, respect and support I could ever ask for. Testimonial
I spent six weeks at The Banyans being provided with a program that included getting support from psychologists, psychiatrists, doctors, and all the wellness coaches. On top of all that, I was rebuilding myself with activities such as Personal Training, Yoga, Music Therapy, Art, and Equine Therapy. Equine Therapy was incredible. for something that I didn't even understand, it was emotionally amazing to see that horses could actually change you. All of these therapies and experiences allowed me to find myself again. Testimonial
I would be extremely likely to recommend The Banyans as I have found my stay very beneficial. It was a well-organised and meaningful experience. The staff here are very friendly and welcoming and everyone here has been phenomenal. There are many different personalities but they all help in their own way. Everyone seems to really enjoy working together which really gives a positive feel to the experience.
The therapy team are very professional. They really get to know you and to understand the reasons as to why you are here. It is obvious that they really care. I found the individualised program very beneficial as I preferred the one on one experience. It was also a program specifically for my needs and what I needed for the time I was here.
All the facilities at The Banyans are a very high standard and the food is unbelievable - very high quality and taste. The chefs here are amazing. They have inspired me to be more creative with eating clean.
I am now better able to manage stress and anxiety, I have an enhanced sense of wellbeing, better understanding of myself and an increased level of confidence. Thank you for a fantastic experience.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you for looking after me during my stay. When I arrived I was tired, stressed, sleepy and over my position in life and regretted some of the core decisions I had made over the last 5 years.
When I left today I felt energetic, happy and ready to tackle the world. Most importantly I loved who I was and what I was bringing to the world again, after a couple of doubts. The food, the therapy, the grounds and surrounds, the exercise and the quiet really has got me back on track and I will forever be grateful.
