Enrich your spirit at the Crystal Castle & Shambhala Gardens
Tucked away in the Byron Hinterland, a short scenic drive from Byron Bay, the Crystal Castle and Shambhala Gardens is a magical place where you can behold the enchanting beauty of crystals, from gigantic formations to exquisite jewellery. Visitors can walk among gods through stunning botanical gardens and rainforest, follow an ancient labyrinth, turn the ‘Mani’ wheels at the Southern Hemisphere’s only Kalachakra World Peace Stupa, an amazing monumental project blessed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Summer is always a wonderful time to visit the Crystal Castle & Shambhala Gardens, and this year even more so with the launch of a new daily program of three amazing new experiences as well as the hugely popular Crystal Castle Peace Experience.
The Shambhala Gardens Tour leads you on a fascinating journey through the gardens, opening a mystical door into legend, history and spirit.
“Opening a mystical door into legend, history and spirit”
The Music of the Plants from Damanhur is a profoundly moving and memorable experience, an expression of the innate intelligence of the plant kingdom, during which you have an opportunity to sit in relaxation and listen to plants play their music. You will never forget the first moment you hear a plant express its unique vibration through music and connect to the deep beauty of nature in a completely unimagined and often life-changing way.
The Peace Experience includes an enriching sound healing bath, a visualisation meditation and sacred ‘Kora Walk’ around the World Peace Stupa. This unique Crystal Castle offering will deepen your inner and outer sense of peace.
After a full day exploring and experiencing, relax at the Lotus Café and drink in the breathtaking views of the Byron hinterland while enjoying delicious healthy food and tempting treats. There’s an extensive collection of books, CDs, body products and gifts for all ages. You can even have your Aura photo taken or book yourself in for a reading and during the school holidays there’s face painting for the kids.
There something for everyone to enjoy this summer at the Crystal Castle & Shambhala Gardens.
Open 10am – 5pm (NSW time) except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and Good Friday.
