Healing Dreams Art and Wilderness Retreat

Name of Residency: Healing Dreams Artist Residency

We have a spectacular residence in Australia on a small island called Flinders Island, Tasmania. We offer a fully equipped Arts Centre, for painting and ceramics. Our accommodations include 2 free-standing cottages equipped with queen beds and ensuite. We are remote, wild and wonderful! Artists have been coming here for many years and enjoying the inspiration and solitude of this location. Ocean views, nestled in Mount Strzelecki, and surrounded by wildlife–it is a creative haven.
