There is an abundance of early settlement and convict history to explore while on a 4WD tour or bush walking in the nearby National Parks, and with a host of river activities available there is also plenty to do in the region. To compliment these activities we also have a massage and beauty salon to revitalise the weary body.
Outdoor training and team building is also a part of the Retreat, either on site or in the nearby Dharug National Park. Abseiling, canoeing and high ropes courses can be arranged through a local company formed to cater to the Retreat’s demands.
All standard audiovisual equipment is included in quotes and includes flip charts, whiteboards, TV, video, OHP and screens. The 2 main conference suites have the additional advantage of having a private office for the facilitators and delegates use. These offices are equipped with computer, fax, printer and dedicated phone/data lines. To ensure every event held at the Retreat runs smoothly there is at least one fully trained member of staff based in the conference centre office throughout the duration of the event.
