Relax and smell the roses this Spring

Does your partner want to escape a stressful workload? Are you sick of staring at your phone? We have the perfect remedy to scratch your travel itch. 

From retreats and meditation to dazzling nature walks the Blue Mountains Road Trip has an experience fit for any post-isolation thrill seeker or exhausted worker looking for some downtime, leading you right to the beautiful Blue Mountains Botanic Garden Mount Tomah.

The Blue Mountains Botanic Garden Mount Tomah

Nature Therapy Tours are exclusive to this spring at the stunning garden with a new wellness experience destined to make you reconnect with your inner Zen in a serene cool climate rainforest environment.

Originally from Japan, Shinrin-Yoku (forest therapy) walks are a preventative health practice designed to increase your mental clarity and reduce stress using your own spiritual awareness.

The Lady Nancy Fairfax Walk will leave you feeling calmer mentally and physically, destined to lower your blood pressure and heighten your senses. You can also sip on some tea at the Japanese- inspired tea ceremony post walk to reflect and reconnect on your spring journey.

Tomah Retreat

If walking isn’t your thing, then rejuvenating in silence is definitely on the agenda at the Tomah Retreat where you can book a one hour:

  • How to Mediate Class

  • How to Heal Animals

  • Reiki (spiritual energy) Treatments

Tomah Retreat is an animal refuge that is home to many furry friends like Flora the Pig and it is the perfect spiritual and informative experience for people looking to become more internally ‘whole’ and balanced within themselves.

Bronwen Logan is the owner of the retreat and she highly recommends the Japanese inspired energetic practice, Reiki designed to give the client “the intention to take whatever they need in the moment.”

“It is a healing space; it is like a deep sleep and you are aware of everything that is happening around you. It encourages your body to let go of anything you are holding onto,” she said.

Animal healing is a similar trust building and relaxation exercise that includes your best friend (the one with four legs) as you take the lead and embark on a listening and trust practice with your companion to spread energy outside of yourself.  

Logan’s student practitioners also teach beginner Reiki classes that will help you discover more about this personal spiritual practice art form.

Spicers Saganoma Retreat

If you are looking to be pampered Spicers Saganoma Retreat is a refined and exhilarating retreat where you enter a world of “complete rejuvenation and reconnection.”

There is a variety of packages suited for any occasion involving some private downtime in luxury with the All-inclusive getaway package, which serves three rounds of mouth-watering à la carte breakfast’s, lunch on arrival and chef selection dinners, taking all the hard work out in deciding what to eat.

The Bloom Babymoon package is for couples wanting to enjoy their final moments of peace as they switch off with private remedial massages, romantic Bath Butler’s and daily non-alcoholic cocktails.

The distance and isolation caused from COVID-19 has been an uncertain stressful time, but the spring blossom gives you and your loved one an opportunity to recoup with nature and people. We promise you there is not a symptom of stress in sight.
