JULIAN AND RAZ MATEER
Wybalena was purchased in 2014 by brothers Julian and Raz Mateer. They had previously studied and worked in a number of fields including finance, public service, renewable energy, and permaculture. It had been a long standing dream of theirs to own land in the Byron Shire and create a sanctuary where they could share their passions of organic farming, sustainability, health and wellbeing.
Dani, originally from Germany began living at Wybalena in 2016 and is our in house cook. Dani is passionate about food, health and yoga. She has created amazing menus for retreat guests and puts a huge amount of love and attention into all her cooking.
Everyones favourite member of the team, our beloved farm dog Ella. She helps with cattle duties and general morale around the property.
