Welcome to the HQ Getaway! This is where you walk in wanting a rest, time to breathe, internal and external nourishment, and time to just ‘be’.

Located in the beautiful Yarra Valley close to Healesville, surrounded by lush green forest, Amarant Retreat is an eco-friendly sanctuary for reflection and immersion.

You will have the space to connect with the energy and spirit of the forest and gorgeous fellow females, ultimately deepening the unique connection with your innermost self.
