Escape Winter with our Top Retreats
It’s a fact, the Winter Blues hit hard especially in Melbourne where the seasons change with the wind; And, half of the state runs away to a European summer. Winter also makes it extremely hard to focus, or exercise, which is why combining a holiday escape with some much needed wellness is the perfect solution, to say goodbye to the winter blues and to welcome in spring.
Check out this list of Australian retreats available to you throughout winter, and all through spring and summer. Go solo, take a friend, round up the work team and just take a break. Even better, most places offer flexible packages to suit the length of time you want/can manage, as well as cost so you can manage your health as well as your bank balance. There’s literally nothing stopping you from taking some time for yourself.

Located only 45minutes from central Sydney this retreat let’s you escape the hustle and bustle of the city without having to worry about a long drive to and from airports and transport. With packages starting at $250 for 1 night, with twice daily yoga, meditation and all meals and snacks included, tis is perfect for those quick retreats to clear your mind and reset.
Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat, QLD
With Courtesy transfers from Gold Coast Airport, Gwinganna is great for those longer stays. Stay for 3,4,7 or 9 nights with a bundle of amazing activities, food and facilities available to you. Travel or your own, or with a friend and experience the indulgence of a classic massage and facial included in your package, daily yoga and meditation available, and all high quality food, coffee, snacks and seminars included. Soak up the winter sunshine and experience the amazing weather Queensland has to offer.
Tranquil Point Retreats, TAS
Obsessed with Bikram yoga? Then this is the perfect retreat for you. Located in the beautiful Huon Valley in Tasmania, Tranquil Point retreat specialises in Bikram (hot) yoga, with classes running daily. Challenge yourself with a Bikram yoga package, or perhaps a 6-night rejuvenation package and mix your yoga with other activities including a day long bush walks, and plenty of down time to soak up the beautiful scenery.
Griffins Hill Retreat, VIC
Don’t really want to travel far from home, or would prefer not to take a plane. Then don’t worry this Victorian retreat will still have you relaxed and rejuvenated with the stress and hassle of airport experiences. Located near the Grampians, Griffins Hill offers a wide range of retreat and package options. Take a weeklong hiatus from city life, or perhaps even just escape for a Sunday Yoga workshop and brunch. With experienced staff their yoga is for all experience levels. Which is great if like most, the idea of yoga and relaxation sounds amazing but your core muscles aren’t up to scratch and the idea of intense yoga sounds terrifying. I recommend giving it a go, with affordable prices and the Grampians National park a hop, skip and jump from your room, there’s no better way to give a retreat a go.return to news
