If you're seeking time out from professional overload or personal situational change, this is the place to reset and reconnect with nature, think clearly and be nurtured by the warm and knowledgeable folks at Gwinganna.
My experience at Gwinganna was better than I had envisioned. So well planned. So well executed. Un-parralleled friendliness and helpful staff. The passion of the staff was of the highest level. I will be back!
My return to Gwinganna was equally amazing as the first time I went 7 years ago. The Retreat has been very well maintained. You feel welcomed and valued from the second you arrive till the time you sadly have to leave. So much to do, so much to learn, so many opportunities for insight and growth. I'll return again for sure.
The experience was excellent and as I expected it probably would be. The only blemish was the safe in the room was faulty and would not work which I think is something that should not happen particularly given that the windows are louvres which are never secure.
This is a beautiful, stunning 500acres of Australian bush. Wallabies grazing right outside your rooms, Koalas in the trees, just magnificent, a very special property. Beautiful walks, hikes and a very challenging driveway!! Unfortunately the rooms are very tired and in need of a refit and upgrade. Linen, very shabby, blankets awful. The health and wellness information and experience far outweighs the very tired rooms. The SPA experience too is very special.
I am unable to fault this programme. The property is an amazing setting for an intense 5 days of relaxation, education, inspiration and positive energy. The food was exceptional as were each and every person from our wonderful program manager Jo through to all the instructors, therapists, volunteers and Chefs. Yes it’s not cheap but there is enormous value in the investment my in health and wellness given the world we live in today.
great program, great staff and great cohort of guests - very good community spirit very well curated in a highly professional manner , but very personal and not trying to be too over the top slick . Wellness not well - Mind /body/ nutrition done
Loved every second of this amazing location and experience. If you are looking for a full reset body, mind and spirit this is it. Nature and team are incredible - couldn't ask for better professionals.
This was an extraordinary week as I came away ten fold better, with a renewed sense of calm and energy. Gwinganna's holistic approach to body and mind in an amazing property in the hinterland of Qld, is unique as they cover nourishment for the body and soul through food, movement and experiences to bring personal insights. You can do as much or as little as you want so flexibility to suit your own personal needs. The calibre of the personnel was exceptional in their knowledge, experience and ability to communicate clearly, diplomatically and with humour. Best week ever and will do this again!
Excellent on all levels. Great leanings to be had from the activities and seminars, and well worth doing.The staff are amazing - incredibly kind and caring - and the retreat is beautiful. A great way to reset and examine your thinking. Lots of options for both active people and also those who want to take some time to reset their busy lives though more introspective activities - and you can choose on a daily basis both activities. Masses of options. The spa treatments are also first class - and there are many, many options.
