Frequently Asked Questions

What is The Wellness Breakthrough?

The Wellness Breakthrough is the signature two-night three-day transformational retreat hosted by Australia’s #1 health and wellness podcasting network The Wellness Couch. The Couch was founded by the hosts of the network’s flagship podcast The Wellness Guys, with annual downloads now exceeding 1.5 million. With 20 shows and over 30 hosts covering the big stories and issues in the wellness world, The Wellness Breakthrough was created in order to turn the digital podcast experience into a life-changing transformational experience.

What time does The Wellness Breakthrough begin?

The 2017 Wellness Breakthrough gets underway at 6pm on Friday February 17. Check-in is from 4pm at Country Place in Kalorama. The weekend concludes at 6pm on Sunday February 19 with a shuttle bus taking interstate attendees straight to the airport.

How does accommodation work?

Your registration to The Wellness Breakthrough includes twin-share accommodation with another attendee from the weekend. Country Place is excellent accommodation (it’s regularly used as a wedding destination) and the facilities are outstanding. If you prefer to be in a room by yourself the single supplement fee is $150, which can be paid shortly after registering.

Is there a couples discount?

Yes 🙂 There is a $500 couples discount when you attend The Wellness Breakthrough with your partner.

Who is speaking at this years' event?

Four experts in health, wellness, business, nutrition, fitness, family and life purpose – at your disposal for an entire weekend! The four leaders of The Wellness Couch – Laurence Tham, Damian Kristof, Brett Hill & Marcus Pearce will be your guides during The Wellness Breakthrough. And there may be a surprise appearance too.

Why did we create The Wellness Breakthrough?

There’s only so much information you can share on a podcast! And there’s only so much transformation that can take place at The Wellness Summit (with over 900 people in attendance this year it’s difficult to get into groups and workshop through the information). With 20 podcasts now on The Wellness Couch, we recognise that listening to a podcast is one thing, but having the accountability of learning alongside other wellness enthusiasts is an entirely different game. Workshopping your way through all aspects of your life in an intimate environment with an exclusive group of attendees and four professional facilitators is our way of taking the experience to the next level.

Will my dietary requirements be looked after?

Absolutely! It warms our hearts that feedback on the food provided has been outstanding for each Breakthrough we have conducted. We bring in a wholefoods inspired-by-wellness catering team who provide delicious and nutritious fare for the whole weekend. Whether your paleo, vegan, autoimmune or high-allergy, you will leave this weekend feeling incredibly well nourished.

What is the schedule of events?

We begin at 6pm on Friday night and conclude on Sunday night at 6pm. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served in the communal dining area, and in between meal times we’ll be conducting life-changing, transformational experiences. Unlike a seminar or presentation, there is no strict time constraints. We might be up late and up early, and we may not. This experience is VERY fluid and dynamic (just like life).

Where is The Wellness Breakthrough held?

The beautiful Country Place, nestled in the Dandenong Ranges has been The Wellness Breakthrough home since 2015. Nestled on 10 acres in the small town of Kalorama, Country Place has held over 1500 conferences – from weddings, business events, retreats and so on. We love it for the open-plan dining areas, overlooking the Dandenongs whilst kangaroos hop by. We love it for it’s plethora of break-out rooms where we can workshop with attendees and guide the transformation process. We love the Country Place for it’s proximity to the national rainforest and multitude of natural wonders just a short stroll away.

Located 75 minutes from Melbourne airport, we transfer all interstate and international attendees via shuttle bus. Ample car parking is available for those commuting by car.

What is the refund policy?

Enrolment to The Wellness Breakthrough is 100% transferrable. We do NOT offer refunds to the retreat given the intimate size of the event, catering and accommodation requirements. You are welcome to re-sell or gift your enrolment to your friends, colleagues or family should you be unable to attend. Simply send an email to [email protected] with the change of name details.

If I have a question, who do I contact?

Simply send an email to marcus@thewellnesscouch.com and Marcus will respond within 2 business days.

Overall I am blown away with the whole weekend. My highlights were getting to hear each speaker and having quality time with those we resonated with. I’m taking away a whole new approach to embracing motherhood and what I need to do to ensure I’m on a path to continual learning and betterment. 

Thank you to all the wellness leaders for such an amazing display of generosity and kindness towards us all. Your attitudes and care to ensure all our needs were met was incredible – how do you it?! Looking forward to many more experiences and breakthroughs xoxoxo

The weekend has been amazing! There is not enough space here to write everything I am taking away. So so much! In a broad sense I’m taking away personal growth and personal insight to help me on my path.
