Health & Wellness Retreats in Queensland
Orpheus Island provides one of the most beautiful locations for a health and wellness retreat in Queensland. The private island resort combines coral reefs and white-sand beaches with yoga and meditation classes and unique experiences.
In October 2021, you can even visit the island resort for a three-night wellness retreat including yoga, fine dining, breath work, meditation, snorkelling and hiking. Here are three other health retreats offered around Queensland as part of the extravagant Northern Escape Collection.
1. Daintree Ecolodge Yoga Retreat
Nestled in the Daintree Rainforest, the environmentally friendly Daintree Ecolodge is perfect for a yoga retreat. The resort hosts Hatha yoga sessions five days a week, so you can maintain or improve your yoga practice while soaking up the sounds and smells of the rainforest.
The resort complements its tranquil setting, including a sacred waterfall, with a range of wellness offerings. You can revitalise your body and mind with treatments at the Daintree Wellness Spa and treat your body to healthy, local fare at Julaymba Restaurant & Bar. There are also a number of rainforest walks, snorkelling excursions and nature safaris to choose from.

2. Couples Spa Retreat
Are you craving a much-needed escape with your partner? Orpheus Island Lodge offers the ideal setting for a relaxing spa retreat for couples. The on-site Gwandalan Spa translates to “rest and peace” in the local Aboriginal language. It certainly lives up to its name with a variety of restorative and rejuvenating treatments.
These treatments range from therapeutic and pregnancy massages to pedi spas and sea wraps. There are also signature ceremonies; all-encompassing spa journeys that include up to three hours of scrubs, wraps, massages, facials and hand and foot treatments. Gwandalan Spa also uses high-quality Australian botanicals and organic ingredients for natural indulgence.
3. A Serene Retreat Aboard the M.Y. Flying Fish Luxury Yacht
The opulent M.Y. Flying Fish is now moored off Orpheus Island and offers once-in-a-lifetime cruising around the Great Barrier Reef. This is a wellness retreat for those whose health favours nature, outdoor activities and extravagant comforts.
Just picture yourself diving into the Great Barrier Reef off the back of your private yacht and exploring deserted beaches. The gorgeous vessel has a master suite with king-size bedding and a spa bath, along with three deck levels with inviting indoor and outdoor areas. Guests on the M.Y. Flying Fish are also treated to degustation dinners at Orpheus Island Lodge, as well as unlimited use of the resort’s infinity pool, kayaks, yoga mats and catamarans.
