Weekends of Wonderment

A new event series at qualia designed to appeal to those with a love affair for all things luxurious and artisanal

Weekends of Wonderment 

29-31 May, 2015 

Weekends of Wonderment is a new event series at qualia designed to appeal to those with a love affair for all things luxurious and artisanal, who travel for the senses and are seeking a unique, hands-on experience in the region.

The series is set to become Australia’s most intimate and unique weekend getaway – a weekend not to be missed for passionate travellers who want to tap into their senses and experience the Whitsundays region in a unique way.

The inaugural weekend in June 2014 began with an intimate candle making class with Elise Balzac, founder of high-end Australian soy wax candle brand Maison Balzac. The journey continued with a hands-on crabbing experience with renowned chef and Tourism Australia’s ‘Restaurant Australia’ ambassador, Mark Best and expert crabber and marine biologist, Matt Vickers. The love for all things artisanal continued with an art of flower arranging session with founder of Grandiflora, Saskia Havekes; often referred to as the First Lady of Flowers. The weekend then culminated in an elegant ‘Weekends of Wonderment’ dinner at qualia’s renowned Pebble Beach as prepared by guest chef, Mark Best.

The itinerary for future events will continue to focus around bringing internationally acclaimed experts to qualia who will each create bespoke, unique experiences of the highest calibre for an intimate group of not more than 24 guests. By interacting with each expert in a relaxed environment, not only during their session but throughout the weekend, every Weekends of Wonderment guest will connect in a tactile manner with the beauty surrounding qualia and leave fulfilled and inspired as a result.

The itinerary for the next Weekends of Wonderment event in May 2015 is being finalised. Please check back here soon for details, or contact our Luxury Specialists on 1300 780 959 or email reservations@qualia.com.au to register your interest.
