The ultimate girls’ weekend

There’s a girls’ weekend itinerary to suit all tastes

Gather your girlfriends for the ultimate girls’ weekend retreat.

Whether it’s with your best pals, a group of work friends, a much-needed break with your mothers’ group, a book or sporting club, an extravagant hen do, or a mother-daughter bonding trip, the South-West has everything you need for your girls-only weekend.

Indulge

The Margaret River region is famous for food and wine, so it makes sense your visit should include some gastronomic indulgence. Start the day the right way with a barista-made mug of coffee and a visit to a local café dishing out some of the region’s best breakfasts.  Spend the afternoon touring the local cheese, chocolate, ice cream, fudge and preserves producers, and satisfy your tastebuds with complementary tastings and treats to take home. For something more hands on, consider booking a Thai or Italian cooking class at Wildwood Valley or learn 5-star cooking techniques at Cape Lodge with lessons such as French Bistro Classic and Modern Mexican. Of course, no getaway to this world-renowned wine region would be complete without a visit to award-winning vineyards.

Adventure

The South-West corner of Western Australia is heaven for the adventurous and outdoorsy type. Water lovers, hire a boat, jet ski, stand up paddle board, surfboard or canoe for the day. You could take a few hours out to go cycling, horse riding, hiking, rock climbing or tree climbing, or explore the caves and shipwrecks in the region. Or book your spot on a whale-watching charter for whale spotting between May and December.

Retreat

Sometimes all you really need is to switch off, unwind and get away from the world. Bring a book, a selection of movies, board games, or any other indoor hobbies for your weekend of relaxation. Choose a home that suits your needs:

  • Does it have a spa, sauna or swimming pool?
  • Does it have a BBQ, pizza oven or outdoor kitchen?
  • Does it have a fireplace?
  • Does it have a home theatre or other entertainment available?
  • Does it have a tennis court, table tennis or pool table?
  • Is it a country retreat, beachfront or is it nestled in the forest?
  • Is it child-friendly or dog-friendly?

You don’t even have to leave the property. Our concierge service can organise hampers, a private chef to cook meals for you, transport, a yoga or Pilates instructor to visit your group at home, mobile spa therapists, and more.

Spacation

Book an indulgent ‘spacation’ and take in some of the local luxury day spas. Think hot stone massages, luxurious facials, pregnancy packages, Asian-inspired treatments, and even alternative therapies. There is something for everyone.
