Sometimes you just need a break, somewhere beautiful, alone, to figure things out.

Retreats to Nuture and Restore

The Women’s Healing Sanctuary is designed to help restore mind, body and spirit, providing a safe and gentle space for you to rest, connect with nature, be nourished with beautiful food, read a book in the sun, stroll through the garden or meditate in one of our quiet spaces.

This special place is designed for you to restore and recuperate. Our services are tailored to your individual needs, whether it’s for privacy and solitude or participation in one of our activities or workshops…at the Women’s Healing Sanctuary you are able to do as much or as little as you need.

Enjoy the freedom to sleep in, dine in or outside, sit under a tree and read a book, stroll around our water lily dam, enjoy a nap, unwind in a bubble bath, dust off your journal, unpack your art supplies, take another nap, gift yourself time to focus on your writing project, or simply do nothing at all. The choice is yours.

We also offer specialist workshops and themed weekends. Subscribe to our newsletter to stay informed of upcoming events.

Womens Healing Sanctuary Angel Program

Angel Sponsorship

Our fundraising supports women in distress who can’t afford full accommodation fees. Every time you contribute to your stay at the Women’s Healing Sanctuary you are not only gifting something special for yourself, you are also paying it forward to other women in need.

Our intention is to offer a retreat to any woman who may benefit, regardless of their capacity to pay. For women seeking Sponsorship , please call 0456 150 619 to discuss how we can help.

Emotional or physical exhaustion can occur when we are focused on caring for others, or due to prolonged stress, and the trauma it causes can often go unnoticed for a long time.
