Daintree Dreaming Day Tour - Adventure North Australia
Posted: 20 Jul 2017
WELLNESS expert Mandy Millan believes there’s no place more relaxing than the Daintree Rainforest. That’s why Ms Millan, owner of Flo Wellbeing, is bringing her Sydney-based pilates retreat to the scenic destination for the first time. She said retreats were essential for people living hectic lives. “My two passions are pilates and wellbeing. “They’re a great combination for strengthening your body and relaxing the mind,” she said. But she said Far Northerners didn’t have to go to her retreat to experience the benefits of the region. “I looked at taking this retreat to Bali but it’s nowhere near as stunning as Cape Tribulation,” she said. “If locals can’t come, they can always practise the same sort of wellbeing in their every day lives by stretching, taking the time to see what’s going on with their bodies and just sitting and breathing in nature.” Flo Wellbeing founder Mandy Millan is bringing a pilates retreat to the Daintree. She said embracing pilates in everyday life was a great way to break up the monotony of working at a desk. “When you’re rushing through life, you often don’t take the time to connect with your body,” she said. “Our bodies can’t sustain just sitting at desks all day, but taking part in pilates can improve that. The feeling afterwards is like you’ve poured honey into your joints.” She also recommended daily meditation to give busy minds a break. “Our brains are always juggling thoughts, so it’s important to take time to breathe slowly and let those thoughts go,” she said. “Adding music to meditation can help block out those thoughts. I always aim for deep, slow, calm music for meditation.” The pilates retreat will host 12 people from August 24 to 28 at the Daintree Eco Lodge.

About Palm Cove
Where the foothills of the rainforest clad mountains meet the palm fringed beaches of the Coral Sea nestles Cairns' premier beach destination - Palm Cove.
A dawn walk in the ever present company of brightly coloured lorikeets, kookaburras, flocks of sulphur crested cockatoos, wallabies and rare green tree frogs, belies the fact that Palm Cove is just 20 minutes north of the Cairns International Airport.
Palm Cove, your ultimate lifestyle destination, is both affordable and caters for all accommodation needs, from international standard resorts to self catering holiday apartments, all carefully positioned amongst majestic melaleuca trees interspersed with coconut palms and tropical gardens.
Wherever you stay in Palm Cove you have access to the World Heritage rainforest, the Great Barrier Reef boarding from the Palm Cove Pier or you can simply enjoy nature's playground with an exciting challenge and adventures like white water rafting, canoeing, horse riding or trekking. Those who are less energetic can enjoy a fascinating glimpse of this ancient world dominated by pre-historic tree ferns, travelling by four-wheel drives, rainforest cableway, train or coach.
Palm Cove, with its distinctive character and intimate ambience, its old world charm with splashes of tropical colour, its Australian architecture, its idyllic setting, glorious sunshine, serenity and security - will enchant you! So take a leisurely stroll along the picturesque esplanade and enjoy the experience of the village shopping precinct with its many specialty shops. Take a swim on the patrolled beach, walk to the tranquil beaches of Clifton or Kewarra.
It's your holiday... floral scents, flashes of gigantic butterflies and the tiniest of brilliantly coloured sun birds, balmy nights and a magnificent beach front setting - this is Palm Cove. So whether you do it all or chose to do nothing, Palm Cove will leave you with a lifetime of memories to treasure.
Palm Cove is Cairns' most popular holiday beach, for locals and visitors. Its long sandy beach is lined by tropical coconut trees on one side and the clear, blue waters of the Coral Sea on the other. The beachfront esplanade is shaded by ancient paperbark trees and peppered with hotels, restaurants and retail opportunities. Cairns and its international and domestic airport is a 40-minute drive south, the rainforest is on the mountains behind you and the Great Barrier Reef lies offshore, waiting to be explored. A stunning destination in paradise.
