The Married at First Sight Australia Couples Retreat may be one of the most cursed weeks in the reality TV calendar, but the show’s producers certainly didn’t skimp when it came to the location of the contestants’ getaway.
When they aren’t causing drama, the MAFS 2022 couples have been enjoying their stay at the luxurious Kalinya Estate in Bargo, New South Wales. This also happens to be the same location as last year’s spicy retreat.
The sprawling property sits on five acres in the state’s Southern Highlands.
If you have found yourself drooling over the location of the MAFS Couples Retreat then you are in luck because you can actually stay there!
The notorious country manor can be hired for special occasions including weddings (very fitting) or corporate events.
However, there is a catch – it will set you back a whopping $6440 per night!
According to the estate’s official website, “the private Estate is proudly owned and operated by Chris and Mandy Barnes, who will warmly welcome you like long-time friends. They’re deeply passionate and go above and beyond to deliver a personalised service. No matter the size or occasion you’ve come to celebrate, be it private or corporate, you’re in for a treat.”
The Kalinya Estate Has Been The Backdrop To Some *Chef’s Kiss* Drama
Don’t be fooled by the stunning location of the MAFS Couple’s retreat. After all, the Kalinya estate has been the backdrop to some of the dirtiest drama on Married at First Sight this season.
Firstly, it is where Domenica Calarco and Jack Millar had their first BIG blow up after Jack overheard his bride venting to the gals about her dissatisfaction with their sex life.
Naturally, the groom was pissed but Domenica didn’t even realise until Brent Vitiello very gently informed her to zip her lips.
When the Italian attempted to patch things up with her beau he (literally) told her to f*ck off. She heeded his advice and did just that.
This spat gave way to an even greater argument later in the evening between Domenica and former-MAFS-sweetheart Olivia Frazer.
The pair went head to head during the girls-only dinner after Olivia completely tone-policed her fellow bride, resulting in Domenica smashing a glass on the table.
Meanwhile, the boiz were enjoying all that Kalinya Estate has to offer – with Al Perkins even going for a dip in the swamp.
If you can get past the fact that this location is probably cursed by a MAFS demon after all the Couples Retreat dramas, we are more than sure that you’ll enjoy a stay here!
