Opened my mind, opened my heart. Thank you! It was intimate, informative and important. Loved it! Kelly D

I was expecting diet and exercise, but was pleasantly surprised that you focused more on the mental side of things which I have been (deliberately) avoiding. Love, love, loved it. Thank you! Melissa R

Inspirational and deep. I appreciate each speaker sharing their personal experiences of health and relationships to inspire everyday people to improve their quality of life. Jackie D

“Great day listening to passionate, real, inspirational, educated people” Lisa M

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 2 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 available for purchase).

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.

Will my Dietary Requirements be looked after?

Whilst food is not provided, many of our exhibitors provide samples and there is food for sale. 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.

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 Australasia 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. If you’re new to us, we look forward to meeting you and helping you along your wellness adventure.


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!

What topics does The Wellness Basecamp cover?

Each Wellness Basecamp is different, with a variet of speakers at each location. Click on “Dates & Venues” to see what each speaker covers at each event. Across all three events, topics include female health, gut health, low tox living, wholefoods cooking, stress management, mental health, mindset, barefoot living, longevity, self-care, mindfulness, relationships, movement and more.

Who is speaking at this years' event?

Each location for The Wellness Basecamp features four to six of your favourite Wellness Couch podcasters plus a special guest! 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!
