Permaculture Sydney Institute and Bandusia Country Retreat are opening the farm gates for personalized and group tours. The tour includes information and explanation of the farm design, and its elements, principles and techniques.

TOUR ONE – (One hour tour) takes you around Bandusia Retreat. It features zone one kitchen garden systems and plants; aquaponics systems; composting and soil systems; and small animal systems such as quail, guinea pigs, turkeys, chicken, ducks and bees.

TOUR TWO – (Two hour tour) includes all of the above plus a tour of zone one, three, four and five – The Pecan Nut farm and the PSI farm across the river. Here you will see larger animals such as cows and alpacas; larger scale earthworks such as a dam and swales controlling the on-site water management.

Not only do these tours explain and introduce you to permaculture (much of which you can’t see unless guided), your tour fee contribution supports an ethical service and the development and activities of Permaculture Sydney Institute.


  • One hour tour $60 – Tour of Bandusia Country Retreat zone 1 and 2
  • Two hour tour $100 Bandusia and the PSI Farm zone 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5

Each tour includes tea and refreshment. Each participant is invited to plant one vegetable during the tour. We welcome schools, individuals, environmental groups, garden clubs and everyone. Also a great gift idea.
