When is the last time you looked into the mirror and said... “Hello me!”
This year marks the third year of the WoogsWorld and Hello Me partnership. Our aim is to get women travelling again and to ESCAPE the mundane! Bringing groups of like-minded women together to focus on US!
Over the years, we have seen women literally blossom before our eyes, with no kids to pick up after, no cooking, no cleaning and no worrying. The biggest decision that you will have to make is which cocktail to choose.
We believe that our 2017 Escape Program will have something for everyone. Foodies and wine-lovers are very well catered for, plus you will have plenty of occasions to relax, chill out, laugh and just take that time out, just for you. You may choose to come with a mate, or come solo. Whatever the situation, we guarantee a fabulous time.
In the past we have had weary mums, single mums, grandmas and single women. Why, we have even had several mother-daughter combinations! By the end of your escape, you will return refreshed, relaxed and with a mindful of memories that will make you smile.
So, it is with great pleasure that we present the WoogsWorld-Hello Me Palm Cove Escape.
Staying at the gorgeous Reef House located on Palm Coves beach front.
The Reef House is a unique and stunning getaway. It is one of the few boutique resorts that can boast a history and a character molded from a remarkable background.
The original Reef House was built in 1958 by a Cairns bookmaker and used as a family home. According to an article in a 1972 issue of The Bulletin, a swimming pool proprietor was allegedly heavily indebted to the bookmaker, but managed to repay his debt by offering to build 'the best swimming pool in North Queensland'.
In 1970 it was purchased by a syndicate and opened as a restaurant with limited accommodation of three suites in the garden. In 1972, Brigadier The Hon. David Thomson, MC, RL, (later Federal Minister for Science & Technology), acquired the property and operated 'Reef House' as a private residence with visitors treated as personal guests.
Guests helped themselves to drinks from the bar, and in the true tradition of an officer's mess, signed chits on an honesty system. This still prevails today in The Brigadier's Bar. Also continuing a tradition, each evening candles are lit throughout the resort denoting Twilight Hour, an opportunity to meet with other world traveller's over a complimentary glass of Brigadier's Punch.
The earlier tradition of The Reef House continues to this day, and the General Manager takes pride in meeting as many guests as possible when they arrive and also joining others for evening drinks.
It's all part of the casual elegance and colonial charm of a bygone era that is the boutique experience of The Reef House.
