Resilience For Families– Cradle Mountain is perfect for people short on time, but big on helping their family cope with life’s challenges. Watch your child’s confidence grow as they learn proven resilience techniques in the stunning Tasmanian wilderness.

Resilience For Families is not a boot camp. 

While some activities may challenge (that’s how resilience is built after all), you and your family are immersed in a positive, nurturing environment.

Together, we’ll hike through the famous Cradle Mountain National Park, returning to the comfort of Waldheim Cabins each night. Daily activities bring out the best in you and your children. Nightly reflections reinforce the day’s learning. Wellbeing coaching fast-tracks your family’s resilience.

Guided by our world-class facilitators your family learns:

  • How to build resilience
  • How to reduce anxiety and manage stress
  • How to create positive mental health
  • To share an incredible experience and strengthen family bonds
