Cost to attend

We understand that everyone is on a different financial journey, we’ve done all we can to keep costs to a minimum to aid in affordability. We’re offering two different prices for the retreat. The first is $1100.00, this covers the cost of the retreat (accommodation, meals, course material, speakers, administration etc.). It also aids in the long term outlook of the program, ensuring we’re able to offer retreats and continue developing the program for years to come.

The second is just the cost price of $980.00; this covers the cost of the retreat only (accommodation, meals, course material, speakers, administration etc.).

Please carefully consider your means when signing up to a Real Life:Real Love retreat.

**Cancellation incurs increasing cost as it draws closer to the event and due to booking of the venue, there are no refunds less than 14 days from the event.

  • 2 nights accommodation (king bed/twin king single)
  • Gourmet Meals (Fri night supper. Buffet breakfast & lunch with 3 course dinner on Sat. Buffet breakfast and lunch on Sun.)

What is a Marriage Retreat? Great question. A marriage retreat is an opportunity for you and your spouse to get away from the busyness of life to spend time building your marriage intentionally, so it stands the test of time. Our retreats offer tools and methods to deal with the most significant challenges surrounding married couples. Leave with your marriage being refreshed and renewed for the next chapter of your married life.

But my marriage isn’t in trouble? This is the best time of all to seek assistance to make your marriage be the best it can be. We firmly believe that prevention is the best solution. Getting tools and methods on how to deal with issues as they inevitably arise can make all the difference later on down the road. As much as the retreats are group based there is plenty of time for just you and your spouse to have one on one time together, enjoying each other and the time away.

We can’t afford it. If affordability is an issue we do offer the option of paying by instalments. Focus on the Family Australia has established a fund to subsidise couples that could benefit from attending but can’t afford the full amount, this is on a case by case basis where funding allows.

Places are limited and filled on a first come-first served basis. As retreats fill up you can be placed on our wait-list.

Both your spouse and yourself, including last names.
