News flash! We need to commemorate special occasions in order to be happy.
It’s official. That wonderful organisation, Project Happiness says to help us create happiness for ourselves and the world, one of the things we need to do, is to celebrate anniversaries and important milestones. We humans are instinctively driven to commemorate important moments in our lives, and Spicers Retreats can help you to do just that.
From romance to adventure, food to wine, we offer a broad range of experiences for you to celebrate and get happy. Here are some suggestions but there are lots, lots more:
Spicers Signature Heli Experience
Want to create an unforgettable memory for you and your partner, why not take to the sky with a scenic helicopter flight like no other. Gently lift from the beautiful grounds of Spicers Peak Lodge, and wind through the Great Dividing Range, to a clearing that opens atop your private mountain destination – Mount Mistake.
Here you will enjoy a picnic of sparkling wine and cheese on the escarpment edge with views east over the Lockyer Valley. Feel like the luckiest people alive while you take in the incredible beauty of the valley with not a soul in sight.
Spa Anise – Spicers Sangoma Retreat
Indulge in the ultimate spa experience in the foothills of the Blue Mountains at Spicers Sangoma Retreat. Be sure to avail yourself of our treatments and the artistry of our restorative massage techniques. Escape to a place where nature provides the space to disconnect from your busy world. Take your partner, friends or just yourself for a weekend to rejuvenate the mind, body and soul. Go on, you deserve it.
5 Day Scenic Rim Trail
Rekindle your sense of adventure and special friendships and hike as part of a group along the Great Dividing Range. This wonderful experience not only gives you the chance to explore undiscovered parts of Queensland, but to also enjoy Spicers’s relaxed luxury all along the Scenic Rim Trail. There’s nothing like sharing the sights and sounds from the day’s hike and a sense of achievement over the beverage that greets you on arrival at the end of each day. Well, perhaps when combined with the knowledge that you will also be able to enjoy a shower, a gourmet meal of locally sourced produce; and then jump into a Spicers bed of crisp linen and fluffy pillows for a well-earned rest. Ah bliss.
Hunter Valley Balloon Flight
Soar softly over Spicers Vineyards Estate and Australia’s oldest wine region, the Hunter Valley, with a sunrise hot air balloon flight. Float above the picturesque cellar doors of Pokolbin, Lovedale, Rothbury or Broke where you will feel the sensation of no movement at all as you glide effortlessly through the crisp morning air. Your one-hour balloon flight also includes a digital photo package to capture the delights of your lofty experience, plus a full a la carte mouth-watering breakfast at éRemo Restaurant at Spicers Guesthouse. What a way to create an exhilarating morning of joyful and happy memories.
Peak to Hidden Vale Koala Safari
Share a very special experience that combines a scenic helicopter flight from Spicers Peak Lodge, a divine lunch, and the chance to track koalas in their natural habitat. Your flight will take you over the Little Liverpool Range before arriving at Spicers Hidden Vale for an award-winning dining experience at Homage Restaurant, followed by a 2-hour Koala Safari. On the safari tour you will explore parts of the 12,000-acre property, and the Hidden Vale Wildlife Centre; if you are lucky, you might even see “Skroo”, “Jude” and “Miriam”, the local resident koalas.
Project Happiness talks about how celebrations provide us with the perfect opportunity to engage in the things in life that make us happy, such dance, song, food, play and laughter.
So, whatever the special occasion or milestone achieved, Spicers can create the perfect setting for life’s special moments to be celebrated and shared, and for you to get happy.
