About This Event

Revitalize on Holiday and come Thrive in Paradise!

Immersed in tropical rainforest, learn sustainable nutrition and conscious lifestyle.

Travel, experience and learn!

What is the most valuable good anyone owns independently? It is the lifetime of each human being. Time is precious.

Simply travelling for the sake of sightseeing is no longer popular and has been replaced by travelling with a clear purpose to experience something new and expand knowledge. Knowledge is power.

We spend time thinking about things we don’t know and complain about how much better life could be if it was different, without making a change. Why?

All too often we live so far from how nature intended...

• Feeling lost, empty and lacking purpose and inspiration because we don't make the time to engage in introspective activities daily, such as time in nature, journaling and meditation.

• Lacking daily routine and discipline

• Eating processed foods, on the run, mindlessly

• Attempting to cope with stress and anxiety daily

• Feeling sluggish, physically and mentally, because we aren't moving and nourishing our bodies daily

• Taking shelter in endless screen hours (or other forms of addiction and behaviors!) because we aren't actually taught how to deal with life’s problems properly and effectively.

Lack of resources is a common excuse for not taking action…

Do you want to take action and start arming yourself with the knowledge and tools to live your best life?

The best investment you can make is in yourself. Take time to make time…

Wisely invest your holidays on you.

Treat your health with the respect you deserve.

“To eat is a necessity, [and] to eat intelligently is an art” -François de La Rochefoucauld -

Venue Highlights

Come Thrive in Paradise!

Dundee Park is a meeting-point for like-minded beings in need of nurturing and nourishment. Knowledge is the key to finding stability in an ever so-fast paced environment. Vibrant health is a result of optimal balance between body function, lifestyle and mindset.

The former wildlife park is a very special place. It was the selected venue for 5 Mission Evolve and 2 Coalescence festivals where thousands of people enjoyed its environment.

Being a traveler that holds no expectations, I can say that when I arrived at Dundee I was surprisingly open-mouthed about the place and its absolutely astonishing surroundings.

Although Dundee is no longer a formal wildlife park, it is still a wild park surrounded by native wild life. Animals such as the iconic and endangered southern cassowaries, possums, agile wallabies, melomys, white tail rats, bandicoots, green tree frogs, echidnas, goannas, pythons ... and crocodiles in the rivers and mangroves. As well as many song birds like, curlews, kookaburras, cockatoos, Australian white ibis, sunbirds, peacocks, hens, and interesting insects like the largest Australian Hercules moth, and the giant swallowtail blue Ulysses butterfly, the tourism emblem in Queensland. It also features various ponds, where crocodiles once lived, butterfly breeding grounds, a massive aviary, a distinct skull-shaped phantom bat cave and the latest addition, 2 very unusual, real and authentic Antarctic survival melonhuts.

Visit true paradise, perfectly imperfect, where self-sustaining life fits together with human life to embrace the real connection. Here is the ideal place where you can coexist harmoniously with nature, re-connect with your body, and embrace earth. Whether you want time away from ordinary life, to decompress from your demanding job, are travelling cross-country or you want your work-team to destress and revitalize. If you are low-maintenance, a bit rustic, love the outdoors and want a face-to-face, unique experience with Mother Nature, the park is the place to be. Expect nothing but low-tech environment and a low-impact, sustainable lifestyle where being honest and open-minded are compulsory!

The 64-acre property has an unspoiled, rough and wild theme, where nature rapidly grows and leads the way. The well-traveled family that owns the park want to maintain it this way, to preserve the beauty of nature, slightly conserved by man’s minimal touch to make it functional and sustainable.

Mission Beach is home to the World Heritage Wet Tropics Rainforest and haven to wildlife. Considering the diversity and unpredictability of it, there is no guarantee to spot these creatures; however, I can guarantee that you will be extremely satisfied to visit. Actually, you will wish you could stay longer!

“It’s not the appearance, it’s the essence. It’s not the money, it’s the education. It’s not the clothes, it’s the class.” -Coco Chanel
