Lazy long weekends

Why wait for a public holiday to have a lazy long weekend? Create one yourself with a sneaky Friday or Monday off and enjoy three days of rest and relaxation at the Club.

There are only a handful of long weekends during the year and sometimes they’re not so relaxing, with lots of organising, packing and navigating of traffic.

So, why wait for the public holidays? Create a long weekend yourself with a cheeky Friday or Monday off work, stay at City Club or Healesville Country Club & Resort, and leave all the work to us!

Include a Club event

Have a long weekend at the Club and add one our forthcoming events to your mix of rest and relaxation. Book to attend a Life Skills workshop or an artist talk on a Thursday night and stay at City Club for three nights with a late checkout on Sunday. Or start your weekend at the Club with Friday night drinks at Bourke Street Green and complete your stay with a Kenneth Park Walking Tour on the Monday.

During the day you can swim in the pool or play pool. City Club has eight full-sized, superbly maintained billiards tables for hours of enjoyment.

Sunday movies at City Club have also returned and will be held on the last Sunday of the month. Start with a glass of wine before heading into the theatrette with light snacks in hand.

Check the online What’s On page for forthcoming events.

Mega March

Book your weekend away at City Club from mid-March onwards and be among the first Members to experience our latest additions.

Our new restaurant and bar Sojourn will open soon in New Chancery Lane. Similar in style to Bourke Street Green, the two-storey venue will have different spaces where you can enjoy a quiet drink or catch up with friends.

For something more sophisticated, the much-loved Wine Bar at City Club has been refurbished and you’ll find the new intimate seating perfect for pre-dinner drinks. 

Look out for our email communications or visit our Club Improvements webpage to find out the exact opening dates for Sojourn and the Wine Bar.

Feeling Fancy

Have a luxurious long weekend in The Retreat at City Club. As the name suggests, you can escape your routine and enjoy the luxury of a private lounge and complimentary canapés and drinks in the evening.

To completely unwind, book a One Spa treatment. The longer the treatment, the better. The 90-minute Sacred Nature Face & Body Ritual includes a facial, body treatment and nourishing massage. Find out the latest specials here.

Maintain the relaxation with a yoga class in the Fitness Centre or try Pilates to improve your strength and flexibility. Book a class online.

For an extra special dining experience, book lunch or dinner in the Members’ Dining Room on a Thursday or Friday. The new summer menu features seasonal produce and lighter dishes, with such taste sensations as stuffed zucchini flowers and char-grilled prawns.

You’ll find information and bookings for The Retreat here.

Country benefits

Club Members who book accommodation under a Club Member rate at Healesville Country Club & Resort can enjoy the new daily Club Members’ Lounge Aperitivo Service.
