About Strathean Retreat Centre

Most of our retreats are held at Strathean Retreat centre which sits south of Otaki amid paddocks and the Tararuas. A large house with kitchen, meditation room, and dining area is surrounded by garden and old totara trees. The Wellington Buddhist Centre has been running retreats at Strathean for over 40 years.

Where to Find Us

If you are driving, turn off SH1 onto the Otaki Forks Road, just before Otaki. Drive for 2.6 km then turn right onto Old Hautere Road. Strathean is 1 km along this road on the left. Ideally it takes about an hour from Wellington to get there. But bear in mind you may be travelling through Friday night commuter traffic, so it could take up to two hours.
