Tasmania has long been a popular destination for mainland Australians, and international tourists. With a rich history, incredible scenery and unique areas to explore, it’s a place to meander and relax, as well as seek out that little bit of adventure.

Of course, you can also indulge in a structured retreat, which take advantage of the rugged coastline, serene outlooks and unique bushland.

Here, are just a few of our favourites.

The O Retreat

The O Retreat offers both physical relaxation and spiritual reconnection, in a tranquil environment. Choose a retreat length to suit you, with just 2 days, or up to a week, with vegetarian meals included, along with some fantastic, relaxing activities, including yoga, meditation, transformational talks, spa and aroma treatments/massage, Reiki energy healing and nature walks. There are also a variety of add-on therapies, to enhance your stay.

Accommodation is described as ‘light-luxe’ with either a private or shared bathroom. If you’re the private type, you’re in luck, as they cap the retreat participants to a maximum of 5 for each retreat, providing for plenty of individual attention.

Retreat stays start at just $260 per night.

Tasmanian Walking Company

This may not be your traditional idea of a retreat, but it’s a perfect way to escape for a few days for the more adventurous, who like a good physical challenge.

Tasmanian Walking Tour Company run a wide range of walking tours right across Tasmania, but our pick is the Overland Track, at Lake St Claire National Park. Choose between 4-day, 6-day or 8-day adventure walks when you’ll discover history, incredible scenery and simply get back to nature. No internet, no phones – just sheer thrill and discovery.

But never fear, despite spending most of your day hiking in the wilderness, you’ll still return to a comfortable bed, a hot shower, incredible meals and Tasmanian wine.
