i like: Gwinganna sleep retreat
Can’t sleep? This works. It truly does, in a gentle, lasting way. Gwinganna retreat in the Gold Coast hinterland is where I did mine. I can’t recommend it enough. I learnt that you shouldn’t eat grapefruit at night and that sleep cures most things – auto-immune, cholesterol problems, weight issues. Four months later and I’m still living out the tips I learned there. Aside from anything else, the place is authentic in its commitment to wellness. Some of the best healers on site, organic food, a wise old legend who lives on the estate and leads walks each morning, Qi Gong practice at sunrise and staff who give a damn. Really. One other thing: the experience is effortless. A 20 minute ride from Gold Coast airport and you’re there, a gazillion miles from everything you need to leave behind.
