Island Adventures

The headland beaches wrap around the point so that no matter the wind direction or the swell, a perfect beach option is almost always guaranteed. To further support Hawaiian massage and way of life, the deeply sacred inland lakes, rockpools, natural springs and walking trails, gently yet profoundly activate flow state in a heart based sense of adventure.


Connecting to others and oneself, we take all participants on a journey of sharing, releasing and intention setting from the heart.

Sacred circles, and self love tools compliment meditation and island exploration.

walks and headland explorations

The abundant wildlife on on the various nature walks around Straddie will amaze you.  The natural formations are further out in the Pacific than any of the Australian mainland, attracting all sorts of large marine life in visible view. From whales, dolphins and turtles to large manta rays and sharks, our visitors marvelled at the regular sightings. Not to forget the abundant land life, you may just catch a joey relaxing in its mother’s pouch or a cheeky Kookaburra on your deck looking for a feed.
