We create amazing holidays for those who want to connect more with themselves, each other and the landscape around them. 


MINDFUL TRIBES is a proudly owned and operated Melbourne based travel company. We specialise in creating hand crafted, escorted, holistic group  holidays. Jo founded the company in 2016 after a twenty year career running travel businesses both in the UK and Australia.

Since having her daughter and suffering post natal depression,  Jo found her balance again in meditation and daily mindfulness rituals. She worked closely with a naturopath to set her body and spirit on the right path. The improvement she experienced in both happiness and energy she found through her love for yoga, fitness and nutrition was truly life changing. So empowered was she, that she felt it was time to combine her passion for wellness with her love of travel.  

For Jo, MINDFUL TRIBES is about travelling with like minded souls to amazing destinations to have amazing holidays that are have a strong focus on wellbeing. Those that are passionate about learning more about themselves through health and wellness, whilst exploring the spiritual side of our destination. 

We ask our guests why they have loved us enough to book. And the overriding answers is we are just so DIFFERENT. We are about small group escorted holistic holidays and less about a traditional yoga or fitness retreat. 

The appeal of our Mindful Tribes journeys are that they aim at the everyday person at differing stages of their welness journey.  Our guests all said they love the fact Mindful Tribes offers a really high standard standard of boutique accommodation + we have friendly and welcoming Retreat Leaders who are great people - people + the fact the yoga or fitness is only one part of the holiday, but not the main focus + we create incredible food experiences at the retreat and at amazing eateries locally + create once in a lifetime spiritual experiences + we offer incredible excursions to connect ourselves to the beauty of the landscape around us + we take a relaxed view to enjoying yourself and if this means enjoying a wine in the evening then please go ahead.
