This is the year to focus on your health and wellbeing. Not only during your every-day life, but also while you’re on holiday. Fortunately, Queensland is blessed with some of the best destinations for retreats.
From the Daintree Rainforest to the coastal enclaves of Port Douglas and the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, here are three must-do retreats in Queensland.
1. Sunshine Coast Yoga and Wine Retreat
This wonderful Queensland retreat is easily accessed for stressed-out Brisbanites needing to escape the city. The Sunshine Coast Hinterland sets the scene with magical rainforest scenery, including waterfalls, dense forest and rolling hills.
The retreat lasts for three days and includes a variety of activities designed to boost your mental and physical wellness. Daily yoga, meditation, breathwork and Ayurveda wellness rituals help set the foundations for your healing journey. You’ll also be treated to healthy, vegan meals in the atmospheric Rainforest Sala.
And let’s not forget a very important part of relaxation and rejuvenation: a little indulgence. This Queensland retreat includes a food and wine tasting tour across the beautiful hinterland. It culminates in a gourmet dinner at The Barrel and artisan chocolate tasting. You’ll also have the opportunity to draw forth your spirit guide during a 2.5-hour workshop. There’s plenty of free time to explore the townships, relax with a spa treatment or simply do nothing at all.

2. Daintree Ecolodge Rainforest Retreat
The ancient Daintree Rainforest offers one of the most incredible settings for this four-night rejuvenation retreat. It includes numerous opportunities to get in touch with yourself through a deeper connection with nature. These include a traditional smoking ceremony on arrival, immersive rainforest walks, a Daintree River cruise and a visit to the historic Daintree Village.
Enriched, fresh and seasonal dining is enjoyed throughout the retreat at the on-site Julaymba Restaurant and various renowned restaurants around the region. You also have guided yoga, meditation and breathwork sessions each morning with an internationally acclaimed Mind-Body Coach. However, few moments define this retreat like the revitalising massage or the ceremonial release and manifesting session at Tranquillity Falls.
