Warrambui’s tranquil atmosphere and flexible facilities make it the perfect venue for schools to run their retreat, camp or conference programs.
With two different accommodation styles to choose from, full catering of delicious and nutritious meals, and optional evening activities or supervised programs to break up your program, your school can be confident your stay will be a success.
We have several meeting spaces available, including a large conference room for up to 180 people which can be divided into two smaller rooms; an 11-metre diameter sunken floor meeting space perfect for meetings, music and drama rehearsals; and other smaller rooms that can be configured as meeting spaces if required.
The site also offers 120 hectares of rolling hills, bushland and pine forest, that can be used for natural inspiration, as well as outdoor meeting areas and sport facilities.
Convenient and beautiful location
Just 40 minutes north from the centre of Canberra, Warrambui is the perfect destination for ACT schools and NSW regional schools to meet and retreat. We are far enough away from Canberra so students can focus on reflecting, planning, rehearsing and learning, but close enough to keep travel times and costs minimal.
We offer two distinct accommodation options that are school-friendly, helping both students and teachers get a good night’s rest.
The Dome is our unique circular building with dorm-style accommodation, where all rooms are accessed from a central space. The Dome sleeps a total of 90 people. The teacher accommodation is adjacent to the Dome, with an additional 11 beds in the Cube. READ MORE
The Village Conference Centre has 22 en-suited units sleeping 2-6 people each for a total of 116. The Village also offers a large conference room and dining room. READ MORE
All facilities have reverse cycle air-conditioning. Larger groups are able to book our entire site & utilise both the Dome and Village.
Our catering team create hearty, nutritious and delicious meals and snacks to keep you fuelled for your entire stay. A rotating menu ensures variety and we cater to any special dietary requirements teachers or students may have.
Fully flexible programs and activities
Our team can run supervised day or night programs to complement your conference or retreat program. A night by the campfire is a popular choice! We offer a range of age-appropriate programs to develop team work and meet educational outcomes. READ MORE
Teachers are also welcome to run their own programs onsite using our facilities and equipment such as projectors, whiteboards, sports equipment and outdoor spaces.
We can assist teachers by providing facility maps, risk assessment documentation and other documents you may need. Our role is to meet your needs, so we are happy to meet with teachers and offer site tours as requested.
