Want to satisfy your Wanderlust without leaving the sunshine state? Descending upon the Sunshine Coast's Novotel Twin Waters resort for four fabulous sun-drenched days in October, Wanderlust 2015 is billed as a chance to 'unplug from the ordinary'.

Practice yoga on a stand-up paddle board. Participate in a pool party. Learn to surf. Take a soundshower. Create a collaborative nature mandala. Shake it out at a jam session. Meditate. Hike. Chant. Sleep. Think. Dream. Wanderlust is a celebration of mindful living, combining yoga instruction, outdoor activities, music, organic food, art, and inspiring talks.

Organisers say your Wanderlust experience may start on your mat, on a mountain trail, or on the dance floor. Or it may begin at one of the highlight events, such as the farm to table dinner on Friday night, featuring a meal sourced from fresh, local ingredients and prepared by the tastemakers of the Sunshine Coast food scene. Or perhaps you'll be drawn in by workshops on topics such as 'sex as medicine' and 'yoga for the vagina' - come on, aren't you just a little bit curious?
Wanderlust is a fast-growing global yoga lifestyle brand which has partnered with Sunshine Coast Council and Tourism and Events Queensland to bring together a packed program of yoga and meditation instructors, musical performers, speakers, artists and chefs for this transformational retreat. It follows similar events held elsewhere on the globe, including Squaw Valley and Toronto.
Conscious artists like Donavon Frankenreiter and Wild Marmalade will feature on the music front, while there are also ample opportunities at Wanderlust to practice yoga with big international names isuch as Janet Stone, Eoin Finn, Amy Ippoliti and Cameron Shayne.
