The Araluen campsite is thoughtfully designed to assist teachers, parents and leaders to have a clear view of the main play areas and gathering areas.
Most Dormitories open onto a central courtyard which lies between the main hall/dining room and the Upper Room, a medium sized carpeted meeting room.
Each ensuite room is carpeted and with double bunks, (rooms 9 & 10, 15 & 16 have Queen size double beds in the a) rooms). There are ceiling mounted heater panels controlled by timers available for use in each ensuited dormitory bedding area.
A pillow and mattress protector are provided, you will need to bring sheets, doona (or sleeping bag), pillow case, towel(s) and toiletries with yourself.

We take pride in providing quality meals at a very reasonable cost. Roger our Restaurant Chef, has many years of experience in catering for Large Groups, Events and Weddings.
