Join us on our upcoming trip to Australia!
We have 8 days of action-packed adventure in store for you on this all-inclusive retreat to down under!
You'll have the chance to explore some of this incredible country's most beautiful natural wonders such as the Great Barrier Reef, ancient rainforests, the sights and wines of Sydney, and spot wild kangaroos and koalas in their natural habitat. With our expert guides leading the way, you can relax and enjoy every moment of this unforgettable journey
Please note that everything is completely optional. The itinerary is subject to change due to weather and availability. This retreat is a little more active as we will be moving from place to place as we cover a lot of land, but we hope to provide you with a nice mixture between relaxation and excursions. Please also note that the retreat officially starts on the first day at the welcome dinner and ends after breakfast on the last day.
Please also note to keep the costs down on this particular retreat, the excursions will be shared with others not on our retreat.

There’s no physical visa label; it’s electronically linked to your passport.
In the event of trip cancellation before the 90-day deadline, $500 of the deposited amount is non-refundable as well as any airfare, train tickets or ferry tickets purchased as part of your trip package due to the strict cancellation policy by foreign carriers ( If applicable).
Trip cancellations requested after the final payment deadlines listed above are non-refundable, and guests are encouraged to file a claim with their travel insurance for reimbursement.

For your free time, we suggest you explore the Sky Tower for a view of the city.
Sydney Tower is Sydney's highest open-air attraction. The Skywalk is a breathtaking 260 m (853 ft.) above Sydney. Harnessed onto a moving, glass-floored viewing platform extending out over the tower's edge, you can view all of Sydney's landmarks, including the Sydney Harbor Bridge, the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbor, and even the Blue Mountains beyond.
The Sydney Bridge Climb-an amazing experience, though a little expensive. This should be booked in advance on your own if you are interested in climbing on the bridge itself: https://www.bridgeclimb.com
