Qiihouse Eco Meditation & Relaxation Retreat – Lorne

Energy Inspired By Nature
“Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into the trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while care will drop off like autumn leaves.” John Muir, Our National Parks
A spectacular weekend getaway nestled in a tranquil, lush rainforest haven on top of Erskine Falls. A bushwalker’s paradise, this venue offers exclusivity and is ideal for a cosy romantic weekend away, an intimate wedding, a corporate retreat, small groups or simply for meditation.

This original “quirky” architectural gem circa 1977 was built to specification by renowned architect Edgard Pirrotta of Melbourne and is of high local significance. Qii house has been beautifully restored by local artisans in a bespoke manner and melds with its landscape.

Unwind and explore the unknown. Enjoy a relaxing retreat away from “business as usual” overlooking Japanese inspired gardens of simple beauty and an endless forest wilderness landscape.

The Qii house experience will ignite all your senses ensuring you leave feeling refreshed and energised!
