What people say about their retreat experience.


Catherine PATERSON | Manager Big4 Adventure Whitsundays

“The retreat was amazing! There was so much to take away from it - I didn't even realise. I came home very relaxed and refreshed…”

Greg McKINNON | CEO Big4 Adventure Whitsundays

“I love to break away from what I do every day and what my life is. My job is very stressful and this is a perfect relaxation with most beautiful Byron food and outdoor exercise you can imagine.”



Jane & Mike MULLER | CEO McDonals Whitsundays

Jane & Mike MULLER | DIRECTORS McDonalds Whitsundays

“We had the entire house at Wategos just for ourselves. It was just magical to watch the dolphins and whales while doing our morning exercise or relaxing on the verandah. We are so happy we could attend two years in a row. “

All physical activities were perfectly in sync and the food was just magnificent. The breakfasts were the best.

My experience with the HBFR was the perfect balance of activities, helping me to create daily movement habits along with a good dose of relaxation and quality time in good company. This was also enhanced with amazing food, a stunning location AND plenty of tips around all aspects of health from eating, sleeping, moving and de-stressing!!! All of the fundamentals and hosted by the 2 most passionate, sincere  and beautiful health hosts you could ask for.

THANK YOU SO MUCH❤️ Jan and Chantel for creating this AMAZING experience
