Truly the place to rest your soul.

The Crystal Castle is home to the Biggest Crystals in the Worlds as well a Tranquil Garden embracing multi Cultures of Energy and Healing.

The Crystal Castle is 30 minute drive from Byron Bay through Lustrous Green Nature, Bendy Roads and Mini Mountains.  I found getting there early was the best idea. We were able to enjoy the garden and its peacefulness in full.

Adult Day Passes are $28.00 this also includes a booklet with a map and a story behind every part of the garden. (Sculptures, Crystals & History).

The Highlights to see in the Crystal Castle are the:

The Enchanted Cave was formed Millions of Years ago when a Bubble was blown into Molten Lava. It is an incredible beauty to behold that you want to curl up inside and be at peace. Once a day for an extra cost, you can pay to climb into The Enchanted Cave to meditate.

The Blessing Buddha is situation in an Rose tinted Amphitheatre.  Buddha is the largest in the Southern Hemisphere and sits upon a Rosie Lotus Flower Pond. What helps focus the energy is a labyrinth of Rose Quartz Crystals centered in the Amphitheatre.

Kalachakra World Peace Stupa was build by Tibetan Buddhists and is in use by Buddhists as a place of pilgrimage. This is the only Stupa in the Southern Hemisphere making it one of the Seven in the world.  While we were waiting for the gates to open for the day, we were lucky enough to see all who worked there walked around to start their day and bring peace into the world.

 

Lotus Cafe
