Positive Energy Adventures & Retreats was created by dynamic duo, Peta Alexopoulos & Belinda Johnson. Both local and like-minded women, seeing a need to support people’s well-being through Eco Tourism and the Outdoors on the Mid North Coast, where they both reside.
Peta has over twenty years’ experience in management and organising events. She has also wealth of knowledge in health, working with people and understanding their needs, owning and managing a busy medical practice for over twelve years.
Peta has immersed herself within her local community of the Mid North Coast NSW, bringing together her professional event management experience, her passion within the health and wellbeing industry, and her love for the outdoors and hiking to Positive Energy Adventures & Retreats.
For more than 15 years, Peta has enjoyed living on the Mid North Coast, hiking locally and exploring many of Australia’s popular tracks. In her spare time, she also enjoys making the most of life’s beauty and experiences, such as, watching and photographing sunrises, swimming in the ocean, practising Yoga and Pilates, spending time with family and friends, exploring and engaging with the community as volunteer and fundraising for many charities.
Peta has a passion for nature, people and providing exceptional experiences. Peta spends much of her free time researching and finding great locations and ideas for us to explore to create special moments to make memories at Positive Energy Adventures & Retreats.
