Are you caught up in the stress of work in this concrete jungle and probably forgotten how to look after yourself? According to recent research, Australians work some of the longest hours out of anyone in other developed countries. More people are working part-time and earning a minimum wage meaning they must work longer hours in order to sustain themselves.
We all know that working long hours and getting caught in the rut of earning well is not ultimately the healthiest. Due to all this, we are easily subject to burnout and emotional exhaustion. As a result, humans need to recharge themselves to stay happy and healthy. So if you’re a tourist just wandering around the country, then make sure to visit one of these places to find that balance within you!
Kalyaana Spa and Wellness Retreat – Bridgetown, WA
Having trouble remembering what sleep is? Don’t worry, us too. Perhaps a ‘sound therapy’ treatment here will remind you. Located in the heart of beautiful Blackwood River Valley, east of Margaret River, this secluded retreat has only two suites and offers fully-customizable packages including reiki, shiatsu, kinesiology, therapeutic massage, art therapy, and guided meditations. The sound therapy package involves using vibrations from Tibetan singing bowls to send you into a dream-like state and research shows it can detoxify the body at a cellular level!

Eden Health Retreat – Currumbin Valley, Queensland

There are no TVs, computers, wi-fi or mobile reception at this lush Hamptons-country-club style estate. Stress and cravings are soothed by the blanket of green outside your room and a daily timetable of activities and spa treatments. For some, morning qi gong then a day spent reading by the saltwater pool will suffice.
