Top 5 Girls Getaways


One of my best girlfriends shared an article recently, which really resonated that we can’t expect our partners to be everything in our life and that spending time with our girlfriends is good for our health!

The article states  - Women connect with each other differently and provide support systems that help each other to deal with stress and difficult life experiences. Physically this quality “girlfriend time” helps us to create more serotonin – a neurotransmitter that helps combat depression and can create a general feeling of wellbeing.

Women share feelings whereas men often form relationships around activities. We share from our souls with our sisters/mothers, and evidently that is very GOOD for our health. He said that spending time with a friend is just as important to our general health as jogging or working out at a gym.

So, suspend that gym membership and book a girls getaway and spend some quality time with your best girlfriends! Here’s our round up of the best girls getaways:


Calabash Bay Lodge, Berowa Waters NSW

Calabash have hosted a large number of girls groups celebrating gourmet hens and birthdays. You can combine your stay with some in-house pampering – think a spa afternoon with manipedis and massages. If you really want to indulge, a Michelin-star trained private chef can cook a 3 course lunch or dinner to create a unique and luxurious weekend away. Calabash Bay Lodge offers 4 bedrooms (4 x Queen + chais lounge, sleeps maximum 8 sharing existing bedding).


Lavender Manor, Blue Mountains NSW

Lavender Manor offers you the whole venue to yourselves so you can lounge around in your pyjamas, pad across into the studio/treatment room for a massage, and collapse back in front of the fire with a big glass of red and a cheese platter after - sounds good doesn't it! Well it is, simply heavenly. Simply book and then pick your treatment in consultation with the property manager. Sleeps up to 12 guests (4 queen beds, 3 singles, 1 King sofa).


La Maison Pacifique, Casuarina NSW

Set in Casuarina, between coastal towns of Cabarita, Salt Village & Kingscliff you’ll enjoy a beachfront location and absolute luxury. Stylishly sleeping 10 guests (1 x king, 3 x queen, 2 x king singles) and each booking receives their very own La Maison Pacifique candle made by local candlemaker, Jaabay Candles to remind you of your stay. Additional candles can be purchased on request.


The Rise, Noosa QLD

The Rise offers three bedroom apartments, combining style, comfort and affordability for a mini-break with your besties.  Enjoy champagne and canapés on the balcony overlooking Noosa, we recommend a pit-stop at Belmondo’s for supplies and even book a yoga instructor to come to the apartment for a private yoga session for a special treat.


The Vintry, Hunter Valley NSW

The Vintry is simply the perfect weekend escape for a group of friends. Sit around the 100 year old dining table and share great food and great wine. The Vintry is The Hunter’s finest accommodation catering for up to 8 guests (1 x king, 3 x queen) in style and comfort.
