Attention, wanderlusters: This woo-woo castle-slash-garden destination is about to challenge the northern lights for the top spot on your travel bucket list.

Just 40 minutes from Australia’s Gold Coast airport and 20 minutes from Byron Bay, Crystal Castle & Shambhala Gardens features a host of treasures, including subtropical gardens, an enchanted cave, and a meditation labyrinth. (Plus, theres a cafeteria featuring vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free options).

Among the crystal collection is a pair of the world’s largest geodes clocking in at just over 18 feet tall and a mesmerizing amethyst cave where you can partake in an hour-long, guided meditation.

But the main attraction of this next-level wellness sanctuary is a collection of otherworldly crystals—some of which are 500 million years old according to the sanctuary’s website. Naren King, the owner of Crystal Castle, “has scoured the world for the most remarkable—and largest —crystals out there,” reports Popsugar. Among the collection is a pair of geodes clocking in at just over 18 feet tall and a mesmerizing amethyst cave where you can partake in an hour-long, guided meditation.

Scoring a pic next to these ancient powerhouses might just land you your most-liked Instagram post ever. But, more importantly for your soul, you’ll get to soak up all the magical vibes this sanctuary has to offer. So what are you waiting for? Pack up your go-to travel gems and head to the land down under for a seriously high-vibe vacay (full of avocados, no less).
