Live Life Beyond Your Fears

Creating Happy Families

Because people come in all shapes and sizes, we offer a learning experience that guides families to connect through better thinking and communication, growing a cohesive family that lives life through fun, respect, trust and adventure.



Creating Happy Families specialises in connecting people, self-esteem, overcoming adversity, building resilience and grit for families.

It is time to be fully connected with your family, to be present, no distractions and start saying no to being busy.

Family Time
Young Family

It is a long weekend away to laugh until your belly hurts, to play, re-discover your imagination and plan your future with your family.


Are you tired and frustrated of having to repeat everything you say, because no-one in your family is listening?

Do you feel exhausted?

Are you and your children stuck on their mobile phone 24/7?  Want to show them there is more to life?

Looking for some adventure in your family’s life?

Want something exciting to do with your family?

Have you stopped communicating with each other?

Is your work getting in the way of your home life?

Need a break from the daily grind?

A Toddler and a Baby

No parent deliberately wants to bring up sad or fearful children.  We need to be aware, not scared.  But how do we stop the cycle?

Create unforgettable moments with fun and adventures.

Family Fishing Trip

We have frequently come across frazzled and somewhat overwhelmed parents.  We know from experience and understand what it will take for you to begin creating a greater connection with your family.  We will share thoughts after quiet observation and consideration.  We really take the time to listen and connect.  You will each feel heard. 


Picture this…….you arrive at the property that looks just as it was described to you in your discovery call.  There are other families arriving around the same time.  Two people that look just like the picture on the website welcome you and you instantly feel at home.  The kids are excited as they see the activities set up around the property.  They want to jump out of the car immediately and are told they can go have a look around.  You are handed a map of the property and you are told to help yourself to a beverage of your choice…. Tick.  


We are off to a great start.


Like you, we have a family and also enjoy memorable moments, so we know the importance of getting it right.  During the discovery session we learn as much as we can about you and the other guests (families too) so as to make sure you will all benefit from each other’s company.


While you are at the Creating Happy Families Retreat there will be activities where you will be competing against other families as a team.  This is done to improve communication and learn more about each other, in particular around how you think, build resilience, overcome adversity and the activities will help with self-esteem too.


Have you ever watched the TV program, The Great Race?  If not, that is okay, let us explain our version.


Three families, all in their own accommodation (Sleeping Hubs) on one property, will each be given a map.


The program (The Race) is over 3 days and is split into activities, with each activity requiring teams to deduce clues, navigate themselves around the property, interact with other families, perform physical and mental challenges, and travel by various transport options available (provided by the property).  The team to complete the challenge is the winner.


Challenges | Teamwork | Games | Reward | Fun


Bring your family along on a journey of discovery and have some fun together.  Connect in a way that will have you all reminiscing on an experience of a lifetime.  Learn skills to use in your life and career.  Be happy and connected to each other, learn how each other thinks and wants to be treated.  Loving each other is easy when you know how they want to be loved.


Is this for you?


If you want your family to be more connected, less confrontational, more courageous, less fearful, more joyful, less anxious, more self-loving, less bullied, kinder, less stressed and live a better life, then this experience is for you.
