We will start the last day with a workout and breakfast, then check-out by 10am. We recommend booking your flight from lunch time onwards on the last day or stay and enjoy more time either side of the retreat, it is your choice.
Can I book an extra night at the same hotel the night before or after the retreat?
Yes, you sure can. Just email Journey Crew at [email protected] to arrange this.

In Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast, there are taxis or shuttle services you can book.
I’m coming with a friend, does the twin share package cover both of us?
The twin share cost is per person, i.e. if you are coming with a friend you would purchase 2x twin share packages. If you’re coming solo but purchasing the twin share package, you will be roomed with another guest also attending solo.
If I come alone will I get paired with someone in a room? Or can I opt for my own room?
It’s completely up to you! Sharing a room is slightly cheaper and is an opportunity to make a new friend. If you don’t wish to share a room with someone you don’t know yet, then book a single room.
What level of fitness do you need?
Our training is very holistic and can be tuned up and down depending on your requirements. We have a basic ‘fitness test’ and we say that if you can do that, then you can 100% do Journey:
- 2km slow jog
- 90 second plank hold
- 10 push ups
- 60 sec wall sit
- 40 bodyweight squats

Do I need travel insurance?
We still strongly advise getting travel insurance. Here are some key reasons to still get travel insurance:
- Natural Disaster
- Baggage (including any items that may not be covered by your home contents insurance – think electronics or jewellery)
- Sports Equipment (should you bring anything of your own)
- Liability (if you accidentally injure someone else, damage or loose someone’s property)
- Medical expenses including covid-19 cover

Do you cater for vegans on all retreats?
Absolutely! Our menu has plenty of delicious vegan-friendly options available on each retreat as well as gluten free
Is there always a photographer shooting the days/activities?
Do I have to participate in every session?
Can I bring my child/children on the retreat?
Our programs & events are designed to cater to adults. Therefore, children of any age under 18 are not permitted to be present or partake in any and all activities as per the itinerary as shared by Journey Retreats. The cost of each retreat package only covers one adult.
Any additional costs incurred includings things such as food, accomodation or care for the child/children is entirely the responsibility of the parent and needs to be arranged independently of Journey Retreats, and also in a way that doesn’t impede on the experience of both yourself and other guests taking part in our week long experience.
What happens if there's another COVID-19 outbreak?
Should there be another COVID-19 outbreak that closes borders or prevents you from attending our retreat, then you will receive a full credit for either the rescheduled retreat date, or any other retreat of your choosing.
