Everyone seems to have a bucket list these days, and more often than not, these lists are filled with wild, outrageous activities you only get to do once. A travel bucket list might include Machu Picchu, an African safari or an epic shopping trip in Paris. For the really adventurous, this list might also include things like yak skiing in India, volcano sandboarding in Vanuatu or waterfall kayaking in Oregon.

But why should your bucket list be so, you know… frenetic?

Why not create a bucket list full of peace and serenity? Why not create a bucket list that you know you’ll enjoy? Why not create a bucket list that’s realistic and affordable and will do wonders for your health?

In other words, why not create a bucket list that includes some of Australia’s best-loved spas and wellness centres?
