March 24-26, 2017
UNWIND Festival- in 2017 we have created something special:
UNWIND Festival invites you to kick back, relax, and enjoy the weekend in bohemian style, with soundtrack to match!
Through Ben Walsh’s curation we invite select artists to join the retreat and create unique combinations to perform for our guests in a variety of formats. Its a boutique festival event, where each edition is a unique, never to be repeated, musical experience.
In March, we’ll welcome Tabla Legend Bobby Singh; Violin Virtuoso, Shenzo Gregorio; Rhythm Guru Greg Sheehan; and our curator, Ben Walsh.
From intimate dinner recitals, to outdoor Jazz concerts, live score’s to film and Saturday night concerts…there will be a curated festival spectrum in a single weekend.
A selection of Australia’s most interesting musicians is on the menu with a few international delights to help transport our guests into a greater escape.
UNWIND festival aims to bring art and music into an already wonderful resort atmosphere to assist the senses into submission. We not only aim these weekends at people interested in getting away, but to those who wish to view musical performances in a lush setting without being driven by alcohol sales or corporate sponsorship.
UNWIND celebrates artists who are creative, diverse and of a high quality caliber. We take the best care of them and invite them to deliver something special over 3 days that they, like you , won’t forget. Recording is part of the process and you will be treated to a digital copy of the music from the weekend to take away with you.
At all other times where music is not on the menu, you will be sleeping in secluded cabins, walking in 67 acres of hinterland, swimming in the pool or river , soaking in our natural spa, watching the treetops overhead or under the stars, putting your feet up, or in our yoga hut stretching out.
Organic food fresh from the garden will be served by our kitchen, and will be a sensation on its own. Paradise One is known to serve up nourishing food for the soul and plenty of it, as our huge organic farm is just outside the doors for those interested in permaculture and putting their hands in the earth.
The property boasts a plethora of wildlife- Owls, many native birds, possums and wallabies, and the river hosts platipi if you are quiet and still at dawn and dusk. They are our beloved neighbors and we treat them with respect.. So you are bound to have a few visits on your balcony, and a symphony at dawn and dusk guaranteed!
The Main Wooden Octagon with Balinese style balconies house most performances and meals.The double Decker tree-house is another wonderful venue for cocktails and bands, the river bank has a stage of its own, and a cute outdoor cinema is the icing on the cake. All driven from Paradise One’s very own solar farm we we have taken extra care to put good energy into every aspect of the process…which is our philosophy and mantra.
This is not just a resort or a business, it’s our concept of Paradise, a family run home to many caretakers who tirelessly toil only to share it with others….won’t you join us?
UNWIND in Paradise and discover the art of relaxing.
