Three-night retreats are available for people living with HIV to provide a break from home and the chance to unwind in a relaxing setting.
There are three retreats each year, leaving the Positive Living Centre on Monday and returning on Thursday. There is a small charge to attend, and transport and all meals are included.
During the retreat clients can set their own pace: sight-seeing trips are available, or they can relax at the retreat venue.
Retreats have been held at Phillip Island, Queenscliff, Gippsland, Daylesford and Balnarring.
All clients of the VAC/GMHC HIV Services Program may apply. Preference is given to those who are isolated and who have had limited opportunities to have a holiday.
