Colour & Coconuts brings The Wellness Festival to Brisbane & Sydney

Following the success of a massive sold-out Melbourne debut in April, Colour & Coconuts will take The Wellness Festival on tour for the first time to Brisbane and Sydney, with a jam-packed program of inspiration for the body and mind, hosted by Australian model and presenter Laura Dundovic.


The event, dubbed ‘the Coachella of the health world’ by Sporteluxe, is the first of its kind to combine health, business and an overwhelming sense of fun. Laura Dundovic is an accomplished ambassador for all things health, fitness and well-being, making her a natural choice for the tour.

The dynamic one-day event is set to the sounds of a live DJ, while guests sip on fresh, complimentary coconut drinks while attending motivational talks from world-class experts.  Festival goers will be able to learn about health, business and relationships, fit in a lunchtime workout and wander around the Wellness Market, where top health brands and services will be on offer, as well as an array of healthy treats– what could be a more exciting way to balance, nourish and excite both body and mind?

Program Highlights include:
