Well­ness a draw card in the bush

Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

A bold new ad­di­tion to the Kar­ratha events cal­en­dar promis­ing in­dul­gence in the Pil­bara bush has of­fi­cially been launched.

The Ad­ven­ture Re­treat Com­pany’s Pil­bara Well­ness Re­treat will be held on Kar­ratha Sta­tion from July 22 to 25.

Peter Sharp, aka the guy with the dance moves who took the TEDx stage by storm and mas­ter­mind be­hind the world’s big­gest eye con­tact ex­per­i­ment, has been con­firmed as the key­note speaker.

Mr Sharp is a Perth-based so­cial artist who will break a three-month tour of the US to at­tend the event.

Ad­ven­ture Re­treat co-di­rec­tor Amanda Ewin said the launch in Perth last week was at­tended by a who’s who of WA’s tourism in­dus­try.

“We can’t wait to share the beauty and magic of Peter’s work with our guests,” she said.

“(Peter) uses fun, play­ful ac­tiv­i­ties to ex­plore the power of hu­man con­nec­tion, en­cour­ag­ing com­plete strangers to share mo­ments of love and kind­ness — it’s ab­so­lutely spine tin­gling to watch.”

Other speak­ers on the bill in­clude health, well­ness and mind­ful­ness ex­perts Dr Jenny Brockis, Mike House, Jill Buck­ton and Nicky Arthur.

Co-di­rec­tor Ky­lah Mor­ri­son said the speak­ers were just one part of what was shap­ing up as an un­for­get­table week­end.

“Our hope is that ev­ery­one who at­tends the Pil­bara Well­ness Re­treat walks away with a truly life-chang­ing ex­pe­ri­ence,” she said.

The Pil­bara Well­ness Re­treat will also fea­ture cul­tural im­mer­sion tours in­clud­ing bush tucker for­ag­ing, tribal danc­ing and a visit to one of the world’s big­gest an­cient rock art gal­leries.

There will also be sun­set yoga, bush walks, a pop-up gourmet long-ta­ble din­ing hall, stylish glamp­ing vil­lage, fine food and wine.

Three-day all-in­clu­sive pack­ages start from $1797 per per­son.
