City Cave, Taringa
One of our team’s favourite ways to destress and unwind is to take a trip to City Cave, Taringa. Situated in numerous locations in the Western Suburbs, City Cave is a must-try relaxation experience! Their most popular activity is their ‘Float Therapy’, a practice that involves lying in a pool filled with 400kg of Epsom salts, allowing you to float with ease. You will quickly be transported into a deep state of theta relaxation; a meditative state your body and mind progresses into for an optimal healing process. The therapy is designed to heal the body, reduce stress and anxiety, and immerse the body in deep relaxation. City Cave also offers private infrared saunas and a range of massage therapies to calm all senses.

Local Parks and Trails, Western Suburbs
Improve your mindfulness by getting back to nature and enjoying the great outdoors. In the western suburbs, we are so fortunate to be surrounded by an abundance of flora and fauna. Just on our doorstep, Mt Coot-Tha provides the community with ample trails and scenic lookouts. Walk, ride or run up the mountain, with plenty of spots along the way to rest and admire the view or set up a picnic. Some of our favourite routes include the 2.4km Spotted Gum Trail and the Honeyeater Hiking track. During your quest, you may come across some furry and scaly friends, so be prepared!
Or, if your kids think they have what it takes to be Australia’s next Ninja Warrior, put their skills to the test at St Lucia’s free warrior park. The 11 obstacles will test their agility, coordination, problem-solving, and strength. Let their competitive nature come out, with the opportunity to compare their course time to other kids, by scanning the QR code at the start of the course to log their experience.
