Getting to Yogafest Retreat Somers:
Somers is a 60-minute drive from Melbourne City in off-peak with easy options along freeways/tollroads or quiet scenic country roads. Yogafest Retreat organisers also help pair-up guests with car pooling and ride sharing upon completion of your registration.
Getting there by road:
Either use Eastlink (Toll Road), then join Peninsula link (M11) and exit at the Mornington/Tyabb turnoff. Or use the Monash Freeway, take the Cranbourne exit then follow the highway along to Hastings. Once at Hastings, turn right then left heading towards Flinders. A turn off for Somers will then direct you. We have more information in FAQs.
Flags and signage will be at the foot of the driveway at the Lord Somers Camp for easy identification. Once you arrive, you will unload your bags, check in with Registration then, if required, be shown where to leave cars safely for the weekend.
