Epicurean adventures: Gwinganna Health Retreat

For some, indulgence is less about alcohol and degustation dinners and more about giving your digestive system (and mind) a rest. Gwinganna Health Retreat promises to do just that. Nestled in the Gold Coast hinterland, 30 minutes from the Gold Coast airport, Gwinganna offers a number of programs from a two-night Wellness Weekend to a seven-night Gwinganna Detox.

It’s a common misconception that “health retreat” equates with long days sipping on water and munching on pumpkin seeds. Not here. Food plays a major role in the rejuvenation process. Simply prepared yet wholesome, the meals include seafood and vegetarian dishes and the majority of produce used comes from the on-site organic garden and orchard. For those interested in shedding any trace of winter, look into the Gwinganna Spring Detox; seven nights of nourishing food, long baths, massages, and useful seminars including how to spring clean your relationships.

Staying there

Two-night packages start from A$980 per person twin share all-inclusive with a massage. For the Spring Detox, rates start from A$2,980 per person all-inclusive with two spa treatments and A$100 wellness credit.
