Feeling very privileged to have been in the company of so many amazing & inspiring people over the weekend, best investment of $$ & time that I’ve spent on myself in a long time. Deb Morland

I attended the recent Wellness Summit as a first timer and long-time listener of the Wellness Couch podcasts.

My heartfelt THANKS to all the speakers / team / crewfor what was truly a brilliant weekend! I appreciate all the very hard work that so many must have contributed – EPIC!!!

I attended alone, but felt so comfortable amongst all the like-minded folk, it was just wonderful! I have been able to share my experience with work colleagues, family and friends, and hope I can bring some more tribe members along next year – wherever that may be.

So, thank you, thank you, thank you to all!

Leanne Poon

What a great day filled with fantastic information delivered in a lighthearted way. From the mind to the body to enlightenment and a deeper understanding of what you are capable of, this seminar encapsulated it all.
It was refreshing to see the presenters so motivated by their own words of wisdom. You literally felt their passion.
Never before have we been to a seminar where the presenters felt so aligned with each other. This is a seminar worth every dollar. Thanks so much for your huge efforts to bring your work to the world.

Sandy & Allan

I jumped out of my skin literally at the opportunity of meeting Cyndi, Kim & Carren as well as being able to meet the Wellness Guys. Its difficult for me to sum in and put the words together but I’ll try to explain as best as I can.

THIS WAS FRICKING AMAZING.  I can’t begin to tell you how empowering, fantastic, earth-shattering, life-changing it was to get there, not only to be motivated to make change and shift my way of thinking but to feel grateful for finding people out there that are like minded, and to be gathered together in one room was fantastic.

PS, if The Wellness Couch puts an event on in your home town, do IT!


Your very first summit was just fabulous and I was pleased to have been a part of it. All speakers shared their wealth of knowledge and were entertaining. I know my friends and I walked away after a 10 hour day having laughed and almost cried when listening to the speakers and yet felt like we’d been there only a short time. Bring on more summits. Great work guys/girls! Trish McFadyen

I wanted to mention how electrified and reinvigorated Felicity and myself were post the event.  Glad we had an hour drive home to ‘come down’. We both felt ‘at home’ yesterday and proud of the wellness journey we have already undertaken in the last 6-8 years and really excited about the future for ourselves, our business, our families and our communities.


Best seminar I have ever attended! Fabulous talented speakers, very genuine, inspiring & motivating! Bring on the next one!

Frequently Asked Questions


What is The Wellness Basecamp?

The Wellness Basecame is a one-day event hosted by Australia’s #1 health and wellness podcasting network The Wellness Couch. The Couch was founded by the hosts of the network’s flagship podcast The Wellness Guys, with annual downloads now exceeding 1.5 million. With over 20 podcasts and 30+ hosts located all over Australia and the world, The Wellness Basecamp was created in order to connect listeners with podcasters and the wellness sector of the local community where the event is based.


What time does The Wellness Basecamp begin?

Each Wellness Basecamp event begins at 10am and concludes at 5pm. Registration will take place from 9am. The Wellness Basecamp includes three breaks – morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea (food not provided).


Is the event venue close to food and accommodation?

Yes! All our Wellness Basecamp venues are in locations that are in close proximity to food and accommodation.


Can I bring my Partner or Teenage Child along?

Absolutely! We highly recommend bringing your partner if at all possible and if you have teenage children between the age of 12-16 years who are inspired by the health and wellness message then we can’t recommend this event enough!


Why did we create The Wellness Basecamp?

You’ve been asking for it! After running The Wellness Summit each year in Melbourne, listeners from all over Australia have been demanding we run events in other locations! In addition, there’s only so much information you can share on a podcast! With over 20 podcasts now on The Wellness Couch, we recognise that listening to a podcast is one thing, but having the accountability of learning alongside other wellness enthusiasts is an entirely different game. Workshopping your way through a live event like this one can also help to bring clarity to your wellness journey.

On top of that, we love meeting our listeners and hearing your stories of success first hand. It’s the fuel that keeps us doing what we do.


Will my Dietary Requirements be looked after?

Whilst food is not provided, many of our exhibitors provide samples. And being The Wellness Basecamp, all dietary preferences are included in our exhibitor area. Alternatively, local restaurants and cafes will definitely cater to any dietary requirements. If your requirements are difficult to cater for, we suggest bringing your own food where possible.


Who is speaking at this years' event?

In short? Your favourite Wellness Couch podcasters plus a few extra special guests! The intention behind The Wellness Basecamp has been to provide local speakers from The Wellness Couch community to you. That way, the wellness community you live in can grow even more congruently via the “proximity is power” principle.

In short, you are more likely to improve your health and life when you have incredible people around you. And the closer they are, the better!
