Retreats & Services

Whether you’re faced with a cancer diagnosis, living with multiple sclerosis, or simply want to reach a greater level of wellbeing, we’re here to help…

The Gawler Cancer Foundation and Yarra Valley Living Centre is a not for profit, non-denominational organisation, that promotes a whole-person (holistic) and integrative approach to health, healing and wellbeing.  We believe health and wellbeing are greatly influenced by how we eat, think, exercise, relax, and relate to ourselves and others.

For over 30 years our foundation has been helping thousands of people improve their quality of life through the delivery of expert lifestyle education, guidance and support at our retreat programs.

We can teach you how to incorporate healthy lifestyle practices which will restore your natural state of balance, support your body’s healing processes and reconnect you with a deep sense inner peace.

Our approach

In line with current restrictions on public gatherings in Victoria, March to October programs have been postponed to the latter part of 2020 (or 2021). New 2020 dates can now be found on our What's On Calendar. 2021 dates will be announced shortly. We are hopeful that will be able to resume our retreats and trainings soon, however, we continue to be led by the advice of the government. In the meantime, participants are fully protected by our flexible transfer and cancellation policy. We have recently launched a variety of online events that may interest you,Click here to browse our Online Events
