Mindful Living retreat – Outback Queensland

August 15 - August 19

In this life changing retreat you will immerse yourself deeply into the science and ancient wisdom of mindfulness surrounded by the incredible and vast natural beauty of the Australian outback.

You will be invited to reflect deeply on the nature of the mind, its connection with the body, and how it shapes our life experiences and relationships. New ways to see your life, thoughts and feelings will be discovered.

This experience is designed for people who are looking for practical tools and new insights that equip you to:

  • be more calm, conscious and connected with the people around you
  • shift unhelpful habits or your reaction to situations that cause you ongoing stress and grief
  • have greater clarity of thinking
  • be more grateful, kind and compassionate to yourself and others
  • reduce feelings of stress and overwhelm
  • have more self-confidence

Each morning will comprise a mindful walk or silent meditation, followed by morning mindfulness lessons, an afternoon bush activity and then more lessons and reflections in the late afternoon and evening.

Suitable for newcomers to mindfulness or those looking to deepen their practice with new skills and perspectives that last a lifetime. As part of the program you receive a mindfulness manual, all relevant mindfulness audios and an eight week daily mindfulness reminder program.


Bush activities
For some, reclining at camp and absorbing the surrounding breath-taking views will be the ideal way to enjoy afternoon activity time. Others might grab a kayak and paddle across the lagoon, go for a tour of the property or head to the springs for a swim.


Kinrara Expeditions is located 3 hours drive west of Cairns and set at the crater of one of Australia’s youngest volcanos. The volcanic earth gives rise to stunning beauty and a magnificent lagoon flooded with bird and plant life – the perfect setting to reflect and transform.

Guests stay in either queen or shared-twin camps, all with super comfy beds and luxurious linen.


Costs are all inclusive of transfers to and from Cairns, four nights accommodation, all food and beverages, bush activities, and three days of mindfulness workshops and materials. Note this is an alcohol free experience.
