Mt Jukes Eco Village is one truly amazing, beautiful and peaceful place in the middle of stunning nature full of wonderful wildlife, tropical fruits, good weather, kind and hard working people, super tasty food (!) and really nice comfortable tiny houses next to a big majestic Jukes mountain. We instantly felt good there, in very high energy and easygoing relaxing vibes. I would happily go back any time to relax, meditate, be humble with others and my authentic self and just enjoy the beauty of nature. Thank you for creating that space, showing your kindness and hosting us so well! One of the best experiences and definitely a place to visit in colourful Queensland! Visited in August ‘23, still thinking about it and the good memories!:)

Thank you Mount Jukes Eco Retreat for an outstanding visit! This break away to reconnect was just what I needed! Friendly and welcoming hosts, beautiful accomodation that takes in the awesome natural surroundings, delicious and deeply nourishing meals. Dave gently guided us through a form of traditional yoga practice that is very rare today, and a sound healing session gave me some profound insights. Walking through the many different fruit trees, I discovered some fruits that I had not seen or tasted before. The sauna session followed by a refreshing swim in the creek was a winner too. Thank you so much Dave and Aune! I will be back again!

This place will quiet your mind while you invigorate your soul and awaken your spirit. How?

Dave and Aune have created a space that is perfect for us to let go of the daily grind and focus on nourishing our mind, body and soul. This retreat offers guests Yoga, swimming in fresh natural spring waters, infared sauna, walks amongst the gardens, Ayurvedic meals with the taste of sun kissed fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices grown on the grounds, sound healing and informative teachings on topics specific to Mt Jukes Eco Retreat plus so many other beautiful surprises. I won’t give away all their secrets! This is a place that we all deserve to enjoy and be a part of. Thank you Dave and Aune for sharing your paradise with me. I look forward to another visit soon.

It was an amazing experience on a full day retreat - sauna, yoga/meditation, sound healing and Ayurveda lunch! The Ayurveda meals was delicious! Aune is such a great cook! I would definitely recommend anyone to go at least for a session and see for themselves. It is only around 40 mins drive from Mackay. Thank you Dave & Aune!

About Your Teacher

Dave Deakin has been practising yoga since 2012. He has travelled and practised yoga in India, Bali and Thailand with many world-class teachers. Dave did his teacher training in Bali, where he studied Tantra/Hatha, a lineage-based yoga over 2500 years old, not altered for the audience in the modern world.

"Meditation is one of the main goals of yoga. The best gauge of your yoga practice is how well your life is going. Are you happy, vibrant, and in good health, mentally, physically and emotionally? This is the science of yoga. Be the best version of yourself to live your life with infinite possibilities. Yoga is built for optimum well-being, not flexibility."

Dave is also trained in traditional Tibetan Singing Bowls, Ayurveda/ The Science of Life, and NLP.
