Wanderlust Festival, the fast-growing global yoga lifestyle event, follows-up its hugely successful 2014 downunder launch series in Melbourne, Auckland and Sydney with multi-day summer festivals to be held in two of Australasia’s most stunning and unique resorts.
These one-of-a-kind getaways will be held in the height of the 2015 southern hemisphere summer.
Experience transformative yoga, adventurous outdoor activities, organic dining by renowned chefs and sustainable brands, local wines, craft beers, family fun, art, live music and a thought-provoking speakeasy series.
The Wanderlust series begins in Great lake Taupo, New Zealand, at the iconic Wairakei Thermal Resort – luxuriously set amidst soaring volcanic peaks, healing geothermals, bush-clad hills, the country’s best hiking and mountain bike trails, the dramatic Huka Falls and Australasia’s largest fresh water lake.
The multi-day retreats will gather together yoga enthusiasts, families, foodies and mindful adventurers for an unforgettable getaway. Wanderlusters can stay onsite either in four-star hotel accommodation, “glamping” tents or they can choose to stay with the plethora of accommodation offerings just a short shuttle bus away.
Attendees can practice yoga from renowned instructors, take in live music from some of today’s best conscious artists, attend inspiring lectures, venture into outdoor activities such as hiking, paddle-boarding, mountain biking, and indulge in organic delicacies. An impressive line-up of both local and international talent will bring together the conscious community in one life-changing celebration.
