Accommodation

“I enjoyed myself so much! It was the perfect place to be to relax, focus and learn what Prem Rawat wanted to share with us. No distractions, so comfortable and quiet.” Amaroo Guest

Thank you for choosing Amaroo!

All that Amaroo has to offer is available when you stay on-site. Time spent not travelling to and from hotels will be time well spent. Wake to a chorus of birds and end the day with a magnificent star filled sky. You may even meet a wallaby or koala in your campground!
Treat yourself to the comfort and privacy of an air-conditioned Ensuite Cabin, and know you are significantly contributing to Amaroo. Your practical support also helps to pay for essential maintenance & everyday running costs, and makes Amaroo possible!
Thank you and see you in September!
