Family Getaways with Spicers Retreats
Nature, friends and fun make the perfect recipe for lifelong memories. If you enjoy the outdoors and like the idea of not having to pitch your own tent, then the new Spicers nature retreats are a fantastic option.
Each Spicers retreat is booked exclusively for you and your group. These destinations are designed largely as self-catering getaways (except for Spicers Canopy Luxury Tents, which is all inclusive), and offer a private group destination perfect for families and friends to enjoy a getaway together.
For the kids there is plenty to do; bush walking, mountain bike riding, board games and enough space to enjoy a good old-fashioned game of tiggy! These retreats are the ultimate place for an escape for a weekend or the school holidays.
