Need to escape the daily grind of working in Perth? Or perhaps, you’d simply like a unique retreat experience to help you discover such a large and fascinating state?

With incredible coastlines and vast inland deserts, there is certainly much to see and do. But of course, we’re focused on retreats, and you’ll certainly have every need well and truly covered, from the top of WA, right through to the bottom.

Edgewalkers Creativity Retreats

These retreats are designed to help you explore your self-expression and creativity, learn from their team of dedicated artists and reconnect with nature during exciting walks or transformative retreats… and maybe discover just how creative you really are.

Using tools and techniques from applied transformative theatre, embodied learning techniques & arts-based activities, the sessions have been designed by specialist practitioner Dr Erika Jacobson, to give you opportunities to identify, dismantle and examine some of the obstacles that are holding you back from the creative expression you are yearning for.

During the retreats the creative process is harnessed by guided walks immersed in nature through some of the most pristine and biodiverse environments in the world, including sections of the Cape to Cape track & Boranup forest in southwest Western Australia. In addition, special workshops with contributing local artists during each retreat will enhance your creativity experience.
