An all-encompassing workshop, accommodation, and program focussed property in Eagleton
Hidden in the hills of Port Stephens Hinterland is a little-known oasis that boasts a unique selection of women’s wellness floral programs, nature workshops, farm stay accommodations, school holiday programs, and team-building workshops.
Urban Connection Life Skills launched in the November of 2020 with owner, Alecia at the helm, creating one-of-a-kind experiences for groups of all shapes and sizes.
The Eagleton-based venue offers a great selection of workshops and programs and is available to book as a whole or individually with the aim for groups to gather, reconnect, de-stress, and catch some downtime.
“We called the business Urban Connection because this is a space where urban people can meet and re-connect with themselves and others in nature,” Alecia shared.
Driving into the expansive property and down the dirt track, you’re immediately transported to a hidden oasis that features nothing but calm and natural energy.
Whether you’re looking for a venue for an upcoming girls’ getaway, hen’s weekend, baby shower, corporate team event, or anything in between, discover the unique offerings available at Urban Connections Life Skills.
If you’re planning a getaway to the Port Stephens Hinterland and are in need of a unique accommodation experience, Urban Connection’s Farm Retreat is the quaint and cosy space you just might need for that little back-to-nature getaway.
The three-bedroom cottage is freshly renovated and offers all of your typical creature comforts plus the added bonus of being surrounded by a lush green environment.
Enjoy an afternoon bush walk on the grounds, sit around the campfire, tap into your inner child, or remember your childhood as you swing on the outdoor set, or relax by the bush in the comfy hammock. Whatever you end up doing, you’ll no doubt be lapping up the serenity in every corner.

Floral Workshops & Gourmet Grazing with Absolutely Beautiful Flowers
Collaborating with the lovely Sarah of Raymond Terrace-based florist, Absolutely Beautiful Flowers, Urban Connections offers one of the most beautifully crafted workshops available across Port Stephens.
“We began collaborating with Alecia from Urban Connection in early 2021 after we discovered our mutual obsession with plants. Alecia is a qualified horticulturist and as a qualified florist myself, we realised that we had so much to shower each other and our customers about our shared industry,” Sarah said.
Whether you’re creating a Christmas-themed dried floral wreath or a dried floral hanging, you’ll be working with incredible florals whilst being treated to a sumptuous grazing platter.
