6 days for couples in business to rest, relax and rejuvinate, dream, discover, create and design.
In only a few days away to a Red Platypus Retreat, you will achieve more than many do in 6 months of mentoring. Simply because you are able to recover from your hectic pace, be surrounded by people who know the energy it takes to mainstain the momentum of operating a full time business, especially as a couple. Moreso, your companions on this getaway will have the compassion and respect for what it took for you to reach lift off in the initial stages and to sustain the momentum. This is because they too have been where you are and have similar dreams and goals they aspire to. Now is the time to move past the growth wall.
To grow it is important to understand self better and the dynamics which affect your relationship, not only as a couple, but as as leaders. All relationships evolve a certain way and when entrepeneurship is added to the mix the connection can and will change. To embrace the effects of growth on self and each other can smooth the journey to grow as leaders and this investment to slow down and intepret the pathways of choices available moving forward will ultimately encourage improved growth in your business development. The basic affects on how relationships step through time are:
Power – all relationships involve issues of power and control. ...
Affect – all relationships involve issues of liking and disliking. ...
Respect –all relationships involve issues of respect.
This retreat will allow you to reflect on each area above and more and make definative choices moving forward with your joint business goals.
In order to gallop ahead, first you must learn how to ride. The growth stage is not like the start up phase, nor the operation phase, it can be vastly different. The economies of scale can change for the better, but if you are not strategic about your progress than you can actually lose value in your operations. Quality can easily dissipate as you race ahead because you will become busier than you have already been and without knowing how to hold the reigns and be in control you will not be able to focus on the view around you and maximise your full potential. Many operators have began to move into the entrepreneurial zone, yet have struggled to proceed due to cash, health, relationship and other burnout experiences. Many often fail to recognise the added financial and personal support and input your venture will generally require to make the leap into new turnover stages as it moves forward to the next milestone of stability. Each phase of growth is different to the last, and each will require you to be innovative, relaxed and passionate all at the same time.
The A Team at Red Platypus Retreat will take a select group of 20 couples (40 people maximum) away in November, 2021 for an expedition of steep learning curves, while simultaneously sipping on some of the finest of Australia's wines and the freshest produce when overlooking spectacular scenery at Cape Wickham Golf Links Accommodation and facilities. You will be taken out of your comfort zones and then given added time to unwind and choose your own activities at a pace you desire. Breathe what is deemed as some of the cleanest air in the world, enriching your brain cells, with rushes of oxygen to re-spark your very passion. Passion is the key which commenced you along the path of ruling your own empire, keeping passion alive can be challenging. At RPR we can show you how. An experienced group of facilitators will introduce you to some of the most remote and yet highly successful business ventures in the country and bring you back to the shores edge to reflect, collaborate and effect how you can implement the best chain of events to occur upon return to your entrepreneurial adventure. A surprise guest coule who have reached sustainability of life and business will offer you invaluable insight to meander forward in your travels and provide direction how you can leverage your specific situation to new dimensions.

Nestled around the southern hemisphere’s tallest lighthouse, the iconic Cape Wickham Lighthouse (built in 1861), is Cape Wickham Golf Links — a golfing haven of giant sand dunes, rugged ridges and rocky outcrops where one of the activities to select from includes the choice to enjoy the best of nature and 18 holes.
What You’ll Love...
The Property — Located on Australia’s #1 Public Golf Course
In Australia, golf courses don’t get much better than Cape Wickham. The first five holes are along the Cape Farewell coastline, with the 11th hole almost ‘in’ the sea, while the last five holes are around Cape Wickham Lighthouse and the 18th is directly above Victoria Cove’s beautiful beach.
But this #1 ranked golf course offers more than just a satisfying 18-hole round and jaw-dropping views. Cape Wickham Golf Link’s incredible location at the northern tip of King Island means you’re only ever a short drive from incredible beachfront, a steady supply of fresh seafood — best enjoyed at the on-site Clubhouse — the iconic King Island Dairy and historic shipwrecks. Given the island's small size, the furthest you'll have to drive is approximately an hour.
The Location — Halfway between Victoria and Tasmania
A tiny dot in the Bass Strait, this slice of breathtaking green is ideal for a short escape. Only a 40-minute flight from Melbourne Airport and 55 minutes from Launceston in Tasmania, it's a coastal sanctuary with some of the best scenery off the mainland. With complimentary return airport transfers on the island included in your stay, it's even easier to plan your escape.
The Room — Wake up to glorious ocean views over the course, Cape Wickham Lighthouse and Victoria Cove
Given that every hole on Cape Wickham Golf Links has breathtaking ocean views, it’s only fitting that your room does too. Stay in one of 16 gorgeous Ocean-View Rooms with a north-facing balcony, an ensuite bathroom and a TV.
Your Cape Wickham escape is off to a great start with a complimentary bottle of Tasmanian red or white wine and a platter of King Island special cheeses waiting for you in-room on arrival. Plus, enjoy early check-in and late checkout, subject to availability.
The Food — Daily à la carte breakfast and your choice of daily two-course lunch or dinner
Home to some of the most delicious beef and cheese in Australia, King Island is perfect for a gourmet escape. With daily à la carte breakfast included in your package, it’s all too easy to indulge.
Plus, you can select to take advantage of the acclaimed Ocean Dunes Golf Course, also found on the island. Ranked #4 on the list of Australia’s Best Public Courses, Ocean Dunes covers 290 acres with two signature par-three holes that cross the ocean. One time throughout your stay, play 18 holes with golf cart hire for just A$310 per couple (advance bookings are essential). Note: This is an add on activity not included in the event activities.
