All-women tours are the perfect way to recover from Sydney’s Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras.

With the Festival running from February 7 to March 2 and the world-famous Parade and Party on March 1, those heading Down Under for this brilliant ba3cchanal may need some recovery time after all the sequins and glitter have fallen to the ground.

The excellent news for lesbians comes courtesy of gay-owned and operated tour group, Planetdwellers. The perfect ending to the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras long weekend is a day of adventure and indulgence for women only.

At Villa Thalgo, you can relax in the therapy pools and steam rooms, wander through the lush gardens, or choose total indulgence with the optional spa treatments such as couples or singles massage, Hydrotherapy, facials, manicures, pedicures and more (booking required).
