Health Retreats in Queensland
Feel your soul glow in the Sunshine State!
A holiday in the Sunshine State conjures images of the outdoors—surfing waves at the beach, snorkelling over reefs, hiking through lush rainforests, playing sport, riding roller coasters…the list goes on! While it’s great to get out and do all of these things, especially when the weather is so nice, it’s also important to take time out for yourself; to experience ‘calm’ and completely relax! In Queensland, you can do just that. Have the best of both worlds and rejuvenate in one of the state’s many health retreats! No matter where you travel in Queensland, you’ll find plenty of places to cleanse, detoxify and heal your body and soul.
Queensland’s hinterland regions offer the perfect escape from the bustle of the outside world. Known for their lush tropical rainforests, bubbling creeks, crashing waterfalls and nature trails, these areas are peaceful and unpopulated. The majority of Queensland’s hinterlands are covered in national parks. They have an eco-focus and are not built up—in them you can be at one with nature and clear your head. Embrace the local wildlife, listen to bird calls and enjoy the cool feeling of the wet tropical breezes—hinterlands in Queensland make for the ideal retreat!
There are hinterlands all over Queensland, from the tropical north to the south. They include the Tamborine Mountain, Springbrook, Binna Burra and O’Reillys around the Gold Coast; the Glass House Mountains, Maleny and Montville around the Sunshine Coast and the Wet Tropics in the north (just to name a few!). There are so many locations to choose from and all offer slightly different kinds of retreats! Choose between eco lodges in the rainforest, yoga retreats overlooking the coast, day spa-style pampering, or indulgent food and wine trails! Whether you want to stretch your body, open your mind or simple stop and be zen, these are the places for you!
While our hinterland retreats are truly magical, you don’t have to travel too far for the opportunity to unwind and relax. Many of our My QLD Holiday resorts have award-winning spas onsite! Check-in to the Reef House Resort & Spa Palm Cove, Reef View Hotel Hamilton Island, Sofitel Noosa Pacific Resort, Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort Gold Coast or Peppers Salt Resort & Spa, Kingscliff (amongst many, many more) to enjoy pampering treatments by expert professionals.
The luxurious spa programs on offer at our Queensland resorts have been designed to ensure your wellness, health and beauty are carefully nurtured during your stay. Rejuvenate with healing mud baths, feel how your skin glows after a facial or let your stress slip away with an Oceanside massage. At some resorts, in-room treatments can be arranged so afterwards you can calmly drift off to sleep—if that isn’t the sign of being relaxed, we don’t know what is!
