Frequently Asked Questions
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. The Couch was founded by the hosts of the network's flagship podcast The Wellness Guys, with annual downloads now exceeding 1.5 million. With 22 shows and over 30 hosts covering the big stories and issues in the wellness world, The Wellness Summit was created in order to turn the digital podcast experience into a real-world, life-changing weekend.
What time does the Wellness Summit begin?
The 2016 Wellness Summit goes from 9am – 6pm on Saturday September 10 and from 9am-5pm on Sunday September 11. Registration is from 8am on the Saturday. An optional experience (subject to ticket availability) is to include the 2016 Wellness Couch Awards ceremony, which begins at 7pm on the Saturday night. Each day has three breaks – morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea (food not provided).
Is the event close to shops and accommodation?
Yes! This is one of the biggest reasons for holding The Wellness Summit in the centre of Melbourne. If you’re planning on arriving earlier or staying later, Melbourne has plenty on offer. The Hilton South Wharf adjoins the MCEC, and a discount code for accommodation is provided when you register for the event. DFO South Wharf is also located next to the venue.
Why did we 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 game. Workshopping your way through a live event like this one can also help to bring clarity to your wellness journey. Podcasts are lonely! Furthermore, we love meeting our listeners and hearing your stories of success first hand. It's the fuel that keeps us doing what we do.
Will my Dietary Requirements be looked after?
Whilst food is not provided, many of our exhibitors provide food. And being The Wellness Summit, all dietary preferences are included in our exhibitor area. Alternatively, South Wharf offers a range of sensational eateries.
Can I bring my Partner or Teenage Child along?
Absolutely! We highly recommend bringing your partner if at all possible and if you have teenage children between the age of 12-16 years 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.
Who is speaking at this years' event?
In short? Your favourite Wellness Couch podcasters plus a few extra special guests! Click here for the full list of presenters for this years' event. Most, if not all podcasters on the Couch will be featured at some point over the weekend. We have a few surprises in store this year too, so be sure to check back to this site regularly and make sure you like @thewellnesscouch on Facebook and Instagram.
Where is the Wellness Summit held?
This year's event will be held over two wellness-packed days at The Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, 1 Convention Centre Pl, South Wharf VIC 3006, Australia. MCEC is the premier location in the Melbourne CBD to run an event like the Summit, with tiered seating, easy carpark access, a great location, nearby eateries, state of the art facilities and more. The feedback on last year's Summit was so complimentary of the location that we just had to return to MCEC.
What is the refund policy?
Tickets to The Wellness Summit are 100% transferrable. 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 send an email to [email protected] with the change of name details.
What is the schedule of events?
On Saturday we feature speakers including The Wellness Guys, Kale Brock & The Merrymaker Sisters (Emma & Carla Papas). On Sunday you’ll hear from Tim Robards, Carren Smith, Kim Morrison, Marcus Pearce, Jo Whitton and more. All podcasters on The Wellness Couch will be featured across the two days.
Who is The Wellness Summit for?
- Anyone who is interested being a healthy, more vibrant version of themselves.
- Anyone who wants the LATEST information on any of the following health topics: gluten-free living, the ideal diet, fermentation, hormones, mindset, rituals, values & beliefs, functional exercise and more.
- Anyone who is wanting to enter the health and wellness industry and looking for a peer group to associate and network with.
- Anyone who wants to raise a healthy family and share the wisdom of the wellness lifestyle with their children, siblings, spouses, parents and extended family.

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
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.
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
