The Wilpena Women’s Weekend is an all-inclusive 4-day, 3-night retreat that invites you to enjoy all of Active Rest Retreats favourite things.

This retreat is held in the ancient Ikara – Flinders Ranges National Park, about 5 hours from Adelaide. It’s known for its big open spaces, rugged mountain landscapes, peaceful tree-lined gorges and the wealth of wildlife.

Guests are treated to luxurious glamping in safari tent accommodation, nourishing restaurant prepared meals, yoga and meditation classes, plus breath and rest workshops. There are also guided bushwalks through the National Park and cultural experiences with a local Adnyamathanha guide on Country.

Elise and Sarah, your retreat hosts, will be there to support you and the weekend will leave you feeling connected, restored and transformed, with a deeper sense of place and belonging, on Country and in life.

The retreat is offered seasonally for small groups of 8-12 women (over 18) at the Wilpena Pound Resort Safari Camp. Private bookings are also available upon request.

A word from your host

Elise and Sarah, Retreat hosts.
“It’s so rewarding to see the transformations that happen not only on retreat, but also those beyond the Wilpena Women’s Weekend. What a privilege that we get to provide a space where women can come together to explore and restore for themselves, knowing the ripple effect this will have on the broader community.”
