Tuesday August 30th to Sunday September 4th 

Do you sometimes feel physically and emotionally drained?

Do you feel as though you've lost your motivation to eat well and strive for great health?

Do you question your reflection in the mirror and fight with your inner critic on a daily basis?


​You've been living your life day in and day out for quite some time now right?   You've got it down pat.  You meet the expectations you have on yourself, and the expectations put on you by others. Life becomes automatic and you just do anything and everything that ticks the boxes for the day..

But when do you get time to look after you? 

When do you truly stop to assess and strengthen your mental / emotional health?

When do you get time to plan your food, your fitness, your health now that your body is ageing?

When do you get to factor in daily relaxation time to do what it is you would like to do, and ....... breathe?

Step away from the “rinse and repeat” expectations of daily life.  Come together with like-minded women in a natural, stunning, and relaxing environment to do as much or as little as you want for 6 days and 5 nights.

This retreat is all about YOU - the woman that deserves time out of her life-loop to experience what 5 days of peace and quiet feels like for your mental, emotional and physical well-being.  Together with other wonderful mature age women, we will explore nature,  be inquisitive around brumby's, birds, and running fresh water streams, float in hot springs and reignite our spirit in ancient caves.  You will return home feeling calmer, stronger....... empowered.

Come explore and soak in the relaxing environment of Tumut,  located in the Riverina region of New South Wales.  Elm Cottages is the Snowy Mountain's best kept secret - set on a backdrop of unique Australian plant and wildlife, and of course, the sublime landscape that is the Snowy Mountains. It's the ultimate getaway experience.


If you're seeking an unforgettable location for an escape from daily expectations, this Connect, Unwind and Reprogram Retreat in Tumut is just what you are looking for.
