Welcome to our first venture in this gorgeous part of the world. Restore and replenish yourself in a week of singing, walking and music in the beautiful Lamington National Park, in the Gold Coast Hinterland. Our home for the week is the iconic O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat.
Our program offers two music streams- singing or instrumental. Choose daily singing and choir workshops with Rachel Hore or Celtic melody playing and accompaniment with Dave O’Neill. You will be in the same music stream all week, and we’ll join the classes together to work together on a song.
Add to this fabulous walks of 1-3 hours led by Jo Cresswell and Woo O’Reilly. The walks can be hilly but you can choose your level amongst the signed or guided walks.
O’Reilly’s offer activities that you also are welcome to engage in. These include signed walking trails, massage, spas, facials, infinity pool, bird walks, a Flying Fox adventure, Birds of Prey show.
