Ananda Marga Riverschool
Maleny, Queensland, Australia
The Ananda Marga River School is located on the
Ananda Kamala Master Unit, with a jagriti, school and adjoining
family community on 50 beautiful rainforest acres with a flowing
creek, just outside the small community of Maleny, Queensland.
The school is 1.5 hours from Brisbane, and pick-ups can be
arranged from the Brisbane Airport.
(The Sunshine Coast airport is even closer, and the Gold Coast
airport is also not very far.)
Accommodation will be mostly in the school buildings and
jagriti with shared shower and toilet facilities. Alternatively,
participants may choose to book accommodation in the Maleny
area (many picturesque lodgings are available, but we advise
you to book early.)
Delicious vegetarian meals will be provided. Collective
meditation and kiirtan chanting will be held twice daily.
$250 AUD (around $170 USD)
Maleny is 30 minutes from Sunshine Coast
beaches, 20 minutes from the Irwinís Australia Zoo (a great
place to enjoy Australian native animals), and full of beautiful
spots such as Mary Caincross Rainforest Reserve, The Glass
House Mts and Kondalilla Falls National Park. Maleny also has
a large number of cooperative enterprises on the main street
and is a half hour away from the Crystal Waters Permaculture
community. Collective excursions can be organised.
