Thrive New Years Retreat Festival

A transformative festival retreat on the land


Welcome to Thrive, a retreat festival on the land where we come together to celebrate the New Year with conscious intention and deep connection. Thrive is all about tribe and community, creating a safe space for individuals and families to gather and thrive together.

This family-friendly retreat offers a unique experience for everyone. Parents can enjoy the offerings of the retreat while their children are engaged in the vibrant Kids Club, ensuring a balanced and fulfilling experience for the whole family.

Thrive is a space where you can explore the depths of tantra and dive into transformative activities that awaken your senses and expand your consciousness. It is a safe and supportive environment for personal growth, self-exploration, and heart-centered connections.

Immerse yourself in the enchanting sounds of live music and the rhythms of talented DJs, moving your body to the beat and experiencing the joy of dance. Take a refreshing swim in the crystal-clear lake, purify your body and spirit in the sacred sweat lodge, and nourish yourself with healthy and nutritious food that supports your well-being.

THRIVE is a festival-meets-retreat space, carefully curated to bring together great space holders and participants who are co-creators of this transformative journey. Bring your heart and art, as we weave a tapestry of intention and celebration. This exclusive event has limited spaces to ensure a meaningful and nourishing experience as we set intentions for the year ahead and create the tone for 2024.

We are inspired by the energy of the bees, working together in a thriving hive to manifest abundance and create a high-frequency experience. Join us at Thrive, the first of its kind, and be part of a thriving community that embraces conscious celebration and personal growth.

What our friends say

A most magical destination, filled with loving and supportive facilitators. The combination of land, water, trees, energy and safe space of love and compassion. I cannot recommend this location enough, please do yourself a favour and visit the Well-Being Sanctuary.
Well Being sanctuary is exactly what the name describes, A sanctuary of sacred serenity and abundant simplicity where Mother Nature gifts a beautiful balance of Earth, water, fire and air. My soul is nourished, revived and inspired after being there every time.
Wow what a magical place! I’ve been here for a number of festival and even a wedding. It’s out of this world! The setting of the wedding ceremony overlooking the vast lake with the sun setting in the distance over the lake was magical and so romantic. It’s a fabulous setting for festivals too or even just for a break away week or weekend on your own or with family and friends. We loved swimming in the warm waters of the beautiful lake. The forest walks were enchanting! The facilities are great and the service of the team there is excellent, responsive and friendly. I really recommend this place, it’s a hidden gem
Wonderful serene place to get away from it all and connect with nature - and yourself. Glamping accommodation that is clean and comfortable and caters for every need. Off the beaten path but close enough to civilisation. Beautiful walking paths through indigenous forest, breathtaking views and insane sunsets. Ideal for nature lovers and bird watchers. Enjoying fireside chats, SUP’ing on the river/ lake, horse riding and reading. Highly recommended!
What a piece of paradise. Beautiful nature with amazing energy. Loved my stay here and looking very much forward to the next visit.
I have been to the WBS many times. It feels like home. Tranquillity, nature, lake. Comfortable glamping. Peace.
Love this place. So very special! The serene beauty. I love the ethos and respect for the land. Thank you Mariette for being such a fantastic host.
Amazing place to relax if you are looking for somewhere off the beaten track, peaceful , quiet and beautiful. Mariette is a most generous and responsive host - great communication and so informative about the land and all its magic. What really adds to your whole experience is that the it centres around sustainability with a fantastic glamping experience. The tents are spacious and the beds are super comfortable - had such a good sleep after all the day’s activities: Beautiful walk along the banks of the lagoon followed by the longest swim. Tip - try out all of the beaches - each has its own unique character!
Such an incredible wholesome space and place to unwind, rewind and refuel. Mariette and her team have created an incredible natural sanctuary that simply lets you exhale all the stresses that come with living and inhale much needed rest and restore. It is transformative in the most gentle of ways. The Well-Being Sanctuary is just that - a sanctuary to restore our senses and return to wellbeing. My advice if you are reading this - go!!!
