After their very first event last year, Wellness Wander are back with another weekend packed full of events and activities in the Adelaide Hills… and this time, Aleenta Health Club is taking part!
You may have already seen that Aleenta is partnering with Lot 100 to deliver you a blissful morning of Yoga, Pilates and brunch on Saturday, April 1st (which you can still grab tickets for here). However, did you know that Wellness Wander is a weekend-long event starting on Friday March 31st? Why not turn your Saturday brunch into a weekend getaway in the Adelaide Hills, or even make it a fun weekend for the whole family? There are dozens of activities to choose from, so many in fact that we can’t list them all here… so we’ve picked a few of our favs to highlight:
With 9,500 apple trees to choose from, this is a fun, low-cost way to get out in nature and be rewarded with fresh, delicious apples too! This experience runs as a part of Wellness Wander from March 31st to April 2nd. . And if the apples weren’t enough, there is also plenty of wildlife on property, including a resident Kangaroo family, vintage tractors for kids to play on, pedal go karts, new outdoor giant games and a first apple row mini golf, all included in the entry! With entry fees as little as $3 (and free for those under 2!).
Speaking of apples…
These apples are definitely for the adults! Join your host Damien as he teaches you about the process of making cider and of course, you’ll get to create your own too. This event takes place on both the 1st and 2nd April..
Taking place from Friday to Sunday,, this 90-minute tour takes you through certified organic and biodynamic crops at Jurlique Farm. A fellow South-Aussie company, Jurlique is a skincare brand founded by Ulrike and Jurgen Klein. The pair specialise in botany and biochemistry, using their knowledge to craft natural, sustainable products. As you stroll through their farm, you will learn about nature, unique and sustainable farming principles and the science behind Jurlique skincare products.
Amber from “Foliage by Amber” and Paul from “TreesPlease!” collaborate on this unique experience that takes you through the Heysen Property picking native and wild grasses, flowers, shrubbery and foliage. You will then assemble your findings into your very own bouquet! Foliage Foraging takes place on April 1st and April 2nd - check the link above for more details. .
After your morning brunch with Aleenta Health Club, why not venture down to Ukaria for a unique event tantalising your five senses? Featuring guest speakers such as Barry Du Bois from Well Traveller TV and Network Ten’s The Living Room, an afternoon tea made by award-winning Executive chef Kane Pollard, and a sound bath led by Shanti Sounds, this is an eventful evening for surprisingly little cost. And that is just some of the gifts and activities included in this delightful package! A Sensory Journey takes place one-time-only on April 1st at 2pm.
Join certified Reiki master and crystal healer, Sarah, at the Fairy Garden in Hahndorf for an educational and creative session all about the chakras. You will start by learning about the chakras at the fundamental level, followed by an introduction to the many crystals that align with each chakra. Using your newfound knowledge, you will then get to choose from these natural stones to make your unique chakra bracelet! If you have crafty little ones, children are welcome too. This is a one-time event on April 2nd at 10am.
There are seriously so many more activities that didn’t make it on this list, from overnight retreats to horse experiences to sunset picnics; if you want to see the full Wellness Wander program, you can find it here.
