Moreton Island is just off the coast of southeastern Queensland, Australia (a 75minute ferry from Brisbane). Known as 'The Gem of South East Queensland', it's a protected sand island known for its pristine beaches, steep dunes, dive sites featuring shipwrecks and colourful, amongst others! Moreton is almost completely sand with no roads, so we'll have private 4WD to track around.
If the thought of being squished into a two-man tent with no bathroom in sight makes you cringe (and run for the hills), yet still love the idea of sleeping under the stars, then welcome to the world of glamping. Where all the good parts of camping are combined with luxe features and creature comforts you'd prefer not to do without. We’ve got 11 beautifully furnished tents, complete with your choice of queen or single size bed, private ensuite and veranda overlooking the giant Melaleuca trees. When you’re Moreton Island glamping, there’s no tent to pitch, no sleeping bag to unroll, no fire to build! Glamping is truely a way to experience the great outdoors without sacrificing a little bit of luxury.
This retreat includes daily yoga classes taking relaxation and healing to new heights. Expect nourishing yin yoga, energising movement and wellness workshops that will take place in the yoga shala or outdoors in the fresh air to soak up the tranquil environment around you.
It's our mission to offer high-quality yoga accessible for absolutely everyone of all backgrounds and body types. With that in mind, we bring along all the yoga props to make this experience as enjoyable as possible for you. We provide yoga blocks, straps, bolsters, blankets, small trigger balls and large trigger balls. You just have to bring your trusty yoga mat!
