WHEN: 3 - 5 March 2018
The Leeuwin Foundation and Relationships Australia WA have joined forces to create an extraordinary and unique family voyage experience.
Our experienced facilitators will support you to strengthen your family connections and increase the flow of communication, in a safe, supportive and fun environment.
There is no doubt negotiating the teenage years can sometimes be challenging, and occasionally even overwhelming. Staying connected as a family and keeping the lines of communication open are essential to having a healthy and happy family.
Join us on board the Leeuwin to learn a range of skills that will help improve your family communication and build strong relationships – all the while enjoying the thrills and adventure of life at sea aboard WA’s very own tall-ship, the STS Leeuwin II!

“It amazes me how many times I’ve heard said in a group of adults, “why didn’t we learn this information at school?”. So this this voyage is very exciting to me. I’m looking forward to the Parenting Project, both for the fun and challenge of the voyage and, of course, to facilitate a great program where Gail and I aim to help families strengthen their bonds as they go on this adventure together.
Gail been married for 26 years and has two grown up daughters. She has a tertiary qualification in Organisational Psychology. After many years in the corporate world, she retrained professionally to work with families and individuals and is now part of the team at Relationships Australia.
“I love my work. I try to not take things too seriously and like to have fun with my participants as they learn, share and grow. My default is generally humour, a funny story, the common ground of shared experience and imagination. I’m naturally curious and keen for new challenges so I’m really looking forward to meeting the families and sailing on the STS Leeuwin for the upcoming Parent Project”
FROM OUR PREVIOUS ADVENTURERS!
“Our Parent Project journey which I have to say, was truly amazing, and an eye opener for both myself, partner and our two boys. As a result our “chalk and cheese” boys became so much more connected with each other – which will have a huge impact on our future as a family."
