Dress-ups are fun !! on all our trips we encourage our guests to play dress-ups. Please pack a funky little outfit thats not too big and bulky and fits the theme of radical self-expression. Bring your own artistic expression, maybe colour& brightness, black & darkness, cross-dressing or animal embodiment. Whatever fits your vibe. Perhaps you have always felt like a Dragon and that's what you want to embody, so be a dragon. Be bold, be fun and feel free to express this in your costume.
Also please keep in mind that we have limited space in the trailer for luggage so try to pack as light as possible and opt for a duffle bag over a suitcase.

We then have a 1-hour drive to Columbus Falls, the option to spend time at the falls or take a 3km hike to discover Tasmania’s famous Big trees. Groups choice, I vote for big trees :)
Prepare the body and mind because today is a big one! Today we will make our way to Freycinet National Park, Freycinet has global appeal – it is iconic, memorable and breathtaking.

This day will end with a relaxing yin class, healthy dinner and campfire chill time to download and integrate the experience of the day.
