DIRECTIONS to MAYA SANCTUARY
Finding us is very easy. Below are screenshots of possible driving routes from Sydney, Canberra and Orange.
Google Maps have recently updated with a lot more detail, including private roads, so just be aware that sometimes while it may appear that you can go through back ways, they may be blocked off.
Please drive carefully!
Take it slow on the country roads, especially around dawn/dusk, when the animals come out.
To access the property, and your cottage, you will need codes that are sent via SMS on the day of your arrival. Please make sure to fill out your details in the Guest Form, so that we can contact you.

Make sure that you take this route through Mt Victoria Pass, rather than try to come straight from Blackheath via Shipley Rd and Kanimbla Drive, as you will hit a dead end and have to come all the way around.
