Wellness tourism is any travel that is also associated with enhancing, kickstarting or maintaining mental, physical, and social wellbeing.

  • Mental wellbeing – How we think. This is the resilience to cope when times are tougher than usual. It is also feelings of contentment, confidence, contribution, and engagement.
  • Physical wellbeing – How our bodies feel in our day to day. This is not just the absence of disease but a proactive approach to keeping our physical bodies in a healthy state.
  • Social wellbeing – How we connect. This is our relationships with others, a sense of belonging to a community and making positive contriobution to society.

Wellness wander selects exceptional regions and cities around Australia to deliver low impact sustainable events for both visitors and the community. We celebrate local artisans, producers, creatives and practitioners.

Wander through picturesque nature and alluring local stores, explore charming farms, bliss out with bodywork treatments and meditations, take a journey of self-discovery or allow your inner creative to come out to play. With activities for adults and children alike, there is something extraordinary for everyone to enjoy at Wellness wander. Should you need a place to stay, we’ve selected some wellness-oriented accommodation, each offering something truly unique and special.

We showcase each location's unique wellness offerings and empower businesses to expand what they currently offer to integrate wellness opportunities they might be missing. To help visitors navigate we group experiences into five different categories.

  1. Nature
  2. Relax + Unwind
  3. Provenance
  4. Learn + Create
  5. Stay

Some experiences cross multiple categories which means visitors soak up various aspects of wellness at one time. 

We love supporting regional communities

Our aim is to not only support local community health, wellbeing and sustainability, but also to highlight the value of accessible wellness experiences for all and contribute to a thriving and resilient tourism community.

Partnering with tourism businesses and operators in the area we support regional areas and local communities to embrace wellness! So even though Wellness wander runs for a few days we support the host region to be an ongoing incubator for wellness opportunities.

Does this sound like something your region or city might be keen on?

“Our vision is a thriving and sustainable tourism industry that supports people to take a break and prioritise their own wellbeing.”
