The Trip
No chores, no cooking or cleaning… get away from the chaos of busy weekends and let us look after you so you can spend quality time with your child. We have a weekend packed with activities that you can enjoy together including kayaking, nature walks, nighttime spotlight walk, campfire, high and low rope courses, yoga, activities and games. We also have the opportunity for you to spend some quality time just for you, either join one of our workshops, yoga sessions, horse riding, or why not relax to the full and book a massage as we entertain your child. They will be kept busy with cooking classes, games, archery, and more.

The accommodation is in the old athlete's village units from the 2000 Olympics, the rooms are clean and spacious sleeping 4-6 people, each with their own bathroom. The grounds are well maintained with an area just for mums too. There are several big communal areas, as well as campfire and games area, beautiful natural bushland, a petting farm, and some yabbying is also onsite.

CFL is also only 10 min from Angelsea, where we will head to the beach for activities, a walk and even try some beach yoga. The weekend schedule is planned, so you and your child can do as much as you want to do together, including our extra activities of horse riding and massages.

This time is about you and your child, be apart of something that encourages health and hands on activities together. We believe that being in nature and fresh air, away from the chaos of busy lives, competition, and screens, you will have time to focus on your relationship with each other and yourself. The focus is on mindfulness, health and wellness, and time for each of you to feel rejuvenated, connected, and most importantly to forge a memory and relationship that will last a lifetime.
