Essential wellness experiences for your winter Corporate Retreat

Corporate wellness has become more of a priority over the past few years, and this extends beyond the employer. As job seekers, we are increasingly paying more attention to workplace well-being when applying for jobs.


Corporate wellness plays a vital role in our job satisfaction. A corporate retreat is the ideal setting to promote wellness, boost morale and improve employee productivity and positivity. Allow your employees to disconnect from their everyday stresses, and come together as a team, in an environment designed to leave them feeling relaxed and return to work with a clearer mind.


We love including a wellness component to our onsite conferences and our corporate retreats are very much focused on wellness experiences. Enhance your next corporate getaway on the Great Ocean Road! Learn more about some of our favourite wellness activities and how they can help you and your team…


Nature Movement Workshop

Spending time outdoors and strengthening your connection with the natural environment improves both your physical and mental well-being. Movement in nature is all about bringing the forever growing and adapting energy, vibrancy, and negative ions that nature provides, to help support and recalibrate our nervous system. Be guided through this nature movement workshop as you work to relax your nervous system and feel your body begin to self-heal as you use all your senses to take in the beauty that nature provides.

Sound Healing

Sound healing is the practice of using sound and frequency for relaxation and healing. Sound healing has the capacity to slow down your respiratory rate, relax your brainwave patterns, lower your heart rate variability and calm your nervous system. Let us take you through this unique healing session in our light filled Atrium, or take it outdoors for a truly special experience surrounded by nature.



Yoga has numerous benefits proven to improve both your physical and mental health, including reducing stress and improving your mood, awareness, and sleep. Take the opportunity to step away from your screens to focus on clearing your mind and relaxing your body, as our local yoga instructor guides you through one step at a time. Our yoga classes are always customised for the abilities of the group, so whether you have experience or not, we can switch up the style to suit your level.

Guided Nature Walk

Take your time to appreciate the natural surroundings as our local guide shows you along some of the beautiful walking trails and lookouts near Anglesea. Get your body moving and breathe in the fresh ocean air as you venture along the river or beach, or take a hike along the Surf Coast Walk at Point Addis as you discover the native wildlife, abundant flora and towering cliffs along the way.


Infrared Sauna

This light therapy uses specific wavelengths of light that create heat and penetrate past the skin’s layers. So rather than a surface sweat, you have a deep sweat, without gasping for air. Infrared light has been scientifically proven to deliver numerous health benefits including cellular detoxification, pain relief, improved circulation, increased endorphins, weight loss, relaxation, and increased collagen production for anti-ageing. Infrared light is the soothing heat people feel when exposed to the sun but without the harmful UV rays. Infrared Sauna assists cells, muscle, tissue and skin to regenerate and repair themselves and improves the circulation of oxygen-rich blood. This spa experience is a great addition to your next retreat, either as a stand-alone experience or following a signature spa treatment at our onsite day spa, Lux Spa & Wellness.

Mindfulness Workshop

Why not try one of our mindfulness workshops? These immersive experiences are uniquely personalised to your personal or team wellness goals, where no two workshops are the same. Those who experience stress or anxiety may benefit from a back-to-calm workshop, a journey designed to bring your nervous system into a space of calmness. Our ‘Awakening Sensory Experience' aims to awaken all five of your senses to ground you to the present and increase your mental awareness. This workshop will teach you techniques to integrate the senses into your well-being and make everyday tasks easier. No matter what your concerns may be, our wellness team will tailor the ideal mindfulness content for your group.

At Great Ocean Road Resort, we always work with local facilitators. And we love receiving feedback from corporate guests, whether they tackle simple or more complex content, but always manage to take away key 'a-ha' moments from our workshops - particularly around how the nervous system works!

Join our retreat hosts on one of our upcoming wellness retreats for an unforgettable experience designed by our Wellness Director. Our retreats are tailored to your unique needs in a small group setting.
