Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had the most incredible cooking experience on the weekend. The team, Greta, Jo and Georgia were amazing, very fun & relaxed. The setting is stunning & the kitchen & barn are a joy to work in. Now have all these wonderful recipes to use. Could not recommend Bhavana more highly. 10 out 10

An incredible morning & afternoon cooking and eating the most delicious organic meal. I dont think there is a more gorgeous setting to both cook and enjoy a divine lunch. Over looking the beautiful valleys of the Northern rivers, taking in all that nature has to offer our senses, we chatted, laughed, learned new skills, made new friends and were hosted with heartfelt warmth and luxury.
Bhavana has set a standard this is hard to match from quality, service, knowledge and setting. If you are looking for a cooking school that is relaxed, fun, honours local organic produce and is set in absolute heaven, Bhavana is a real treat!

I decided to book a girls weekend away at Bhavana Organic cooking Farm and stay on site to reconnect with my friends. From the moment we arrived on this stunning property we felt a sense of calmness and completely relaxed. We were greeted by Greta who was so friendly and made us feel like family arriving for lunch. We settled into the Accommodation, enjoying the surroundings and were then guided through the garden to pick our fresh produce before experiencing the most amazing well organised lunch that was themed around 'eating for longevity'.The beautiful Jo explained things to us in detail and guided us through the cooking experience in such a fun way making it such a joyful thing to do together. The lunch was delicious and we all sat down together and enjoyed a relaxing afternoon enjoying what we had created together along with some beautifully paired organic wines. After lunch we relaxed around an outdoor open fire and watched the sun set over the hinterland. The next morning we walked to the neighbouring property and had the pleasure of doing a beautiful yoga session with Georgia. It truly was such an amazing getaway and I would highly recommend this as a great bonding experience. We also received the recipes from the day and all agreed we should definitely make it an annual event. We will be back for sure! Thanks for a truly memorable experience!

What a wonderful weekend getaway! Wonderful experience with the cooking school and such a yummy lunch. Very relaxing, peaceful and beautiful surrounds. Accommodation was amazing and the hosts were fantastic, welcoming and friendly. Yoga next door was a lovely experience too. I would love to return one day.

From the moment we arrived it felt like we were amongst friends although many of us had never met. Greta, Jo and Georgia were a wealth of knowledge and the converstaion was effortless. Once back from the garden we all had a chance to create beautiful dishes that I have since cooked for friends 3 times in the last week! With the background of the mountains and beautiful homestead it was truly a magnificent day. Jo shared many interesting things relating to nutrition and health and I look forward to going again for one of the Hormonal Workshops. What a wonderful way to spend a day ladies..Thank you!

What an absolute treat! As soon as we drove through the beautiful gates of Bhavana, I felt so relaxed. Breathtaking landscape so close to Byron Bay with the sound of cows in the distance. We started with a pot of warm herbal tea to ignite our sense before the lovely Jo and Greta took us through the menu they would help us create on the day. Using freshly picked organic produce from the garden, together we went on a journey in the kitchen to create a stunning lunch, better than anything I have experienced in a restaurant. So many valuable skills learnt and above all a lot of fun. I didn't want to leave! I hope to be back very soon.

A day I will never forget.

I cannot remember a day when the combination of fun, great learnings, delicious food, stunning surroundings and a sense of peace and relaxation were all wrapped up into one glorious day spent with wonderful women. It really was a first class experience. The breath and depth of Jo's knowledge will literally transform the way you think about food. The Female Hormonal Health cooking workshop is a luxury every women would benefit greatly from. The whole team managed to make me feel, welcomed, nurtured, valued and special - thank you!

Located in a stunning part of Byron's hinterlands. Simply beautiful. Highly recommend a day at Bhavana Cooking School. Being able to tap in to the broad knowledge of nutrition, growing produce, cooking and well being from three inspirational women left me feeling healthier and wiser... and with a divinely full tummy of organic wine and the freshest, organic produce you could find. What a fun, learning experience.

I’ve lived in Byron for most of my life and always looking for new experiences that are not only fun but a learning experience . I honestly have to say the weekend spent at Bhavana cooking school learning about cooking for your gut health was one of those perfect experiences .
In my opinion it’s the best “ experience “ on offer in Byron and the surrounding area .
The property itself is mind blowing beautiful, the staff are incredibly knowledgeable and offer way more than just a cooking school . It’s a must if your coming to Byron or I would even say it should be the reason for a Byron visit in itself .
Can’t wait to book another class soon .
