Come to Robe and indulge your senses with blissful aroma and hydro therapies, massages and beauty treatments to revive and restore a sense of total mental and physical well-being.

Hear from experts that support your health and wellbeing while having fun and sharing an experience with like-minded women.

Step out of your busy life and wrap yourself in the 360-degree relaxation and indulgence of a 2 day Robe pampering experience to relieve stress, harmonise the mind and replenish energy levels.

Rest and relaxation is not so much a luxury but a necessity in today’s hectic lifestyle.

Women in Business & Regional Development Inc (WiB&RD) is planning to establish an annual event that will not only indulge women and add a little luxury to their lives but support the development of local businesses of Robe and beyond.

Women in Business and Regional Development connects rural and regional women for the purpose of developing their skills, celebrating their successes and achieving their full potential.  We work in collaboration with like-minded people and organisations to provide dynamic programs that are relevant and accessible and contribute to the economic prosperity of our region.

We believe Robe is an ideal location to stage this weekend in late Summer or early Autumn.  If you are interested in being part of this exciting weekend then we would love to hear your ideas.

WiB&RD plans to work in collaboration with key health organizations and a small local committee to offer a weekend that:

  • Provides vouchers to allow participants to have a massage, a beauty treatment, etc
