Couples Retreat at the QT in Sydney


This story first appeared in Talking Point, Winter 2016 issue

Well some would say, it started off as a “FUR coat” type of weekend, even having some Jon Snow’s turning up, but an amazing one at that.

Arrived at the QT Sydney with service that only you would expect someone fit to be a queen would receive. We all met for dinner in the special function room at the QT with some different but surprisingly delicious food especially the dessert.

We laughed and we cried but this all happened as new friendships were made and old friendships rekindled.The next morning we met for breakfast at the QT which was delicious and then we all headed for our day adventures, some went to the rocks, Opera house and some just went for a leisurely walk to Hyde Park and some even got in a bit of shopping.

The night arrived when some of the oldies had some nibbles and then headed off to the State Theatre right next door to see Georgy Girl, the younger couples headed out to dinner at “ZeST” which was a treat especially the size of the lamb Shoulder for 2 and the amazing Banoffee Tart with Salted Caramel Ice Cream and Candied Popcorn.

We all met again for breakfast which would be the last gathering for the retreat. We all said our goodbyes for now but catching up again would definitely be on the cards. We would like to thank Jenny and Joan for all the hard work they put into organising such a fabulous weekend away for everyone to get away from their normal everyday life to a spectacular weekend that won’t be forgotten anytime soon.

Thanks so much MDNSW and all involved in the preparation, we all do really appreciate it. ~ Joanne Edgar, MDNSW member
