What Will Become Of The Corporate Retreat?

Jun 14, 2021

In a business + technology special, Qantas Travel Insider magazine provides revitalising corporate getaway suggestions as Alexandra Carlton explores how to connect when virtual work is the new norm. Providing opportunities to reconnect with nature and your fellow colleague, Luxury Lodges of Australia, The Louise, in the heart of the Barossa Valley and immersive Top End wilderness camp, Bamurru Plains make the list of ‘experiential off-site’ recommendations. 

| The Louise |

“The Louise in the Barossa Valley has recently added a host of wellness experiences to its food-and-wine-focused offering (although the latter is still a major attraction, particularly after the refurbishment of the property’s fine-dining restaurant, Appellation.) A typical Louise corporate itinerary might include sunrise yoga sessions, morning meetings and then a private gin tasting hosted by Seppeltsfield Road Distillers before guests retire to the hotel’s 15 spacious suites.”

| Bamurru Plains

“All 10 bungalows can be hired at the same time at this Top End safari camp. The main lodge is available for meetings or seminars but the real team-building begins when you step into the wildlife-packed wilderness around the property. Birdwatching and barramundi fishing along the floodplains and savanna will give work-weary executives the chance to reconnect with nature and each other.”

– Alexandra Carlton, Qantas Travel Insider Magazine.
