Yama-nui Studio

Welcome to Yama-Nui Recording Studio

Nestled on a quiet acreage on top of Kiels Mountain on the Sunshine Coast, Yama-Nui Recording Studio is a space to collect your thoughts, breathe the fresh air and capture your music away from the hustle and bustle. Designed to be professional, comfortable and creative, our 90 m2 studio has 3 recording rooms and a large control room, specifically suited to recording fully live and features fantastic visibility and flexibility between all rooms. Surrounded by a young permaculture garden and fruit forest, situated only 15 minutes from the beach and the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, whether you’re laying down tracks or relaxing between takes, Yama-Nui is full of refreshing and nourishing creative options.
