Sunday 23 April- Tuesday 25 April (Anzac Day) 2017
Your beautiful little family is invited to indulge in a magical retreat experience. This short break has been created with the intention of offering a space for relaxation and re-connection.
Our Motherground retreats are traditionally designed just for mama and baby, however we’re so excited that this will be our first ever retreat for dads to enjoy and be part of as well.
We invite new families to come away together to enjoy this special dedicated time and space to indulge in celebrating the parenthood journey so far and re-connecting with each other.
We all know how huge the transition into family life with a baby can feel, particularly within the first 18 months. We aree committed to supporting mamas to unwind, relax and honour their motherhood journey. However, we also know how important it is to acknowledge and celebrate the role of the amazing dads in our lives as well. We want to create a beautiful space for your whole family to share in together*.
The setting for this Retreat has to be stunning, nurturing and peaceful. The truly spectacular Elements of Byron Resort is the ideal location for this Retreat and offers a luxurious rest for new families (just 30 mins from Ballina Airport & 45 mins from Gold Coast Airport).
Elements of Byron offers you 22 hectares of beachfront paradise to bask in, the ideal space to invite back in a sense of calm and balance. With a focus on relaxation and connection, this retreat will host a selection of beautiful workshops tailored to supporting and enriching you across your parenting journey, delicious dining experiences, spa treatments, daily yoga & meditation. There will also be access to a nanny service, should you fancy some extra time out to re-connect.
