Relax & Get your Glow on

Kylie Reavely | Crescent Head

Kylie is a HIIT trainer, reiki practitioner, wellness coach and mama of two who loves the ocean and is passionate about all things health and wellbeing.

Here are her tips for getting your glow on whilst holidaying in the Macleay:

1. We love to travel to Gladstone along Belmore Road & stop at all the little roadside stalls selling fruit, veggies & eggs

We love to travel to Gladstone along Belmore Road and stop at all the little roadside stalls selling fruit, veggies and eggs. The soil along the Belmore River is so rich, packing the produce with nutrients. It’s also a fun little adventure and a great way to support the family farms along the road.

2. If you enjoy yoga, Alessandra from Sana Wellness Practices offers group and private yoga classes, massage & the occasional retreat in Crescent Head

If you enjoy yoga, Alessandra from Sana Wellness Practices offers group and private yoga classes, massage and the occasional retreat in Crescent Head. She also has an extensive knowledge of Ayurveda and a beautiful, gentle presence.

3. I pick up bulk health foods like nuts, flour & cacao from Whole & Happy at the Gladstone Hub

I pick up bulk health foods like nuts, flour and cacao from Whole & Happy at the Gladstone Hub. They also offer low tox cleaning products, health foods, kitchen ware and unique earth-friendly gifts. I never leave without grabbing a jar of Lauren’s homemade chai and a bag of dried mango – so good!

4. My favourite takeaway food would have to be from Lumah in Crescent Head

My favourite takeaway food would have to be from Lumah in Crescent Head. They cook everything in small batches using lots of fresh, local ingredients. Despite being takeaway, it feels as nourishing as a home-cooked meal.

5. The Macleay Valley is known for its honey & lots of people have their own beehives

The Macleay Valley is known for its honey and lots of people have their own beehives. We buy delicious honey from a local property, which you can find by driving towards the village on Crescent Head Road, turning left at Neville Morton Drive and looking out for a hand-painted sign advertising honey. It’s well worth the effort.

6. I stay fit by running 30-minute HIIT classes three days a week at the basketball courts in Crescent Head

I stay fit by running 30-minute HIIT classes three days a week at the basketball courts in Crescent Head on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. After classes, we usually wander down to the point for a coffee, followed by a swim.

7. One of our favourite family treats is to drive down Plomer Road to the Bush Kitchen for pizzas on a Friday night

One of our favourite family treats is to drive down Plomer Road to the Bush Kitchen for pizzas on a Friday night. The Bush Kitchen is run by a beautiful local family who make their own healthy bases and pick herbs, spinach, chillies and veggies from their kitchen garden to use as toppings. I usually get mine with spinach, tomato and feta. It’s so simple and fresh and it feels nourishing rather than heavy, like most pizzas. The atmosphere is also brilliant, with a play area for the kids and an outdoor fire that blazes during the colder months.

8. It’s pretty easy to stay active here

It’s pretty easy to stay active here. I try to get in the ocean every day, whether it’s for a surf or just a quick swim, and make sure I walk bare foot on the earth. Something I love about living in Crescent Head is that, even in busy times, there is always somewhere I can be alone – a stretch of beach, a bushwalk or even a rockpool – and experience the tranquillity of nature. We are so lucky.
