What PEOPLE are saying about The Wellness Summit

Feeling very privileged to have been in the company of so many amazing & inspiring people over the weekend, best investment of $$ & time that I’ve spent on myself in a long time.

Deb Morland

I attended the recent Wellness Summit as a first timer and long-time listener of the Wellness Couch podcasts.

My heartfelt THANKS to all the speakers / team / crewfor what was truly a brilliant weekend! I appreciate all the very hard work that so many must have contributed – EPIC!!!

I attended alone, but felt so comfortable amongst all the like-minded folk, it was just wonderful! I have been able to share my experience with work colleagues, family and friends, and hope I can bring some more tribe members along next year – wherever that may be.

So, thank you, thank you, thank you to all!

Leanne Poon

What a great day filled with fantastic information delivered in a lighthearted way. From the mind to the body to enlightenment and a deeper understanding of what you are capable of, this seminar encapsulated it all.
It was refreshing to see the presenters so motivated by their own words of wisdom. You literally felt their passion.
Never before have we been to a seminar where the presenters felt so aligned with each other. This is a seminar worth every dollar. Thanks so much for your huge efforts to bring your work to the world.

Sandy & Allan

I jumped out of my skin literally at the opportunity of meeting Cyndi, Kim & Carren as well as being able to meet the Wellness Guys. Its difficult for me to sum in and put the words together but I’ll try to explain as best as I can.

THIS WAS FRICKING AMAZING.  I can’t begin to tell you how empowering, fantastic, earth-shattering, life-changing it was to get there, not only to be motivated to make change and shift my way of thinking but to feel grateful for finding people out there that are like minded, and to be gathered together in one room was fantastic.

PS, if The Wellness Couch puts an event on in your home town, do IT!


Your very first summit was just fabulous and I was pleased to have been a part of it. All speakers shared their wealth of knowledge and were entertaining. I know my friends and I walked away after a 10 hour day having laughed and almost cried when listening to the speakers and yet felt like we’d been there only a short time. Bring on more summits. Great work guys/girls!

Trish McFadyen

I wanted to mention how electrified and reinvigorated Felicity and myself were post the event.  Glad we had an hour drive home to ‘come down’. We both felt ‘at home’ yesterday and proud of the wellness journey we have already undertaken in the last 6-8 years and really excited about the future for ourselves, our business, our families and our communities.


Best seminar I have ever attended! Fabulous talented speakers, very genuine, inspiring & motivating! Bring on the next one!

What is the Wellness Summit?

The Wellness Summit is the signature two-day event hosted by Australia’s #1 health and wellness podcasting network The Wellness Couch. Created in 2012 after the success of The Wellness Guys podcast, the Couch now attracts annual downloads exceeding 1.5 million and lifetime downloads of almost 7 million. With 23 shows and over 30 hosts covering the big stories and issues in the wellness world, The Wellness Summit was created in order to bring our podcasts to live in one real-world, life-changing weekend.

Who is speaking at this years' event?

The Wellness Summit is designed to bring our podcasts to life. So naturally enough, speakers featured at The Wellness Summit are podcasters on The Wellness Couch. The idea is that before and after the Summit you can engage and learn even more from your favourite speakers by tuning in to their regular podcasts.

What topics are covered at The Wellness Summit?

As a podcast network, The Wellness Couch is renowned for keeping its listeners at the cutting edge of knowledge in health, wellness and personal growth. There is a large focus on nutrition and its many components (from gut health and fermenting to dieting and intermittent fasting). Self-care and living congruently is on the agenda with Kim Morrison, Brett Hill and others. Longevity - and what it takes to live a fulfilling life - is shared by Marcus Pearce. Mindfulness, mindset and spirituality are regular themes. Female health, sleep, stress, movement and more all feature at The Wellness Summit.

What time does the Wellness Summit begin?

The Wellness Summit runs from 9am - 5:30pm on Saturday & 8am - 5:30pm on Sunday.Registration will take place from 8am on Saturday. The event has three breaks each day – morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. 

Is the event close to shops and accommodation?

Yes! Collingwood Town Hall is a short 2 minute stroll to Gipps St, renowned for its range of cafes, great coffee and incredible food. There is a bounty of accommodation choices for the interstate or rural traveller. Independent hotels in Collingwood or the larger establishments in the CBD are at your disposal. And then there is airBnb!

Why did you create The Wellness Summit?

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 experience. Workshopping your way through a live event like this one can also help to bring clarity to your wellness journey. On top of that, podcasts are lonely! And the icing on the cake is we love meeting our listeners and hearing your stories of success and challenge first hand. It's the fuel that keeps us doing what we do.

Will my dietary requirements be looked after?

Whilst food is not included in your ticket price, many of our exhibitors provide food. And being The Wellness Summit, all dietary preferences are included in our exhibitor area. Alternatively, local restaurants and cafes in Collingwood will definitely cater to any dietary requirements. We will send detailed information of your food options closer to the event date.

Can I bring my partner or child along?

Absolutely! We highly recommend bringing your partner if at all possible and if you have children who are inspired by the health and wellness message then we can’t recommend this event enough! To encourage as many young adults attend as possible, registration is just $97 for your child (17 or younger). We don't set an age minimum on child attendees; please keep in mind that adult concepts are often and openly discussed.

If you are considering bringing a young child, we simply ask that you take an aisle seat and exit to a quiet place (in the foyer) if your child becomes loud or irritable.

Where is The Wellness Summit held?

The Wellness Summit is being held at the heritage-listed Collingwood Town Hall, 140 Hoddle Street, Abbotsford.

What is the refund policy?

Tickets to The Wellness Summit are 100% transferable. We do not offer refunds to the event given the size of the event, however, you are welcome to re-sell or gift it to your friends or family. Simply sign back in to Eventbrite and change the name details with the new attendee's details.
