Postponed - Fabry Wellness Retreat

Updated: Feb 15

Update 14-January 2022

It is with a heavy heart, the Fabry Australia Committee again announce the Fabry Wellness Retreat will again be postponed.

The current uncertainty and rapid spread of Omicron variant of the COVID19 virus has resulted in the committee making the difficult decision to cancel the already postponed Fabry Wellness Retreat.

The health and safety is the paramount concern of all our members, guests, friends and family. A few months ago, with borders opening and people becoming more confident in returning to travel, we had hoped the event would provide some wonderful relaxation and time away for the attendees to participate in. However, with the rapid changes of the virus, we feel to continue with the event as planned would not be in the best interests of anyone involved.

When a new date is confirmed, we will share this information with all.

Thank you for your understanding.
