Group Accommodation, Retreats & Conferences

Mt Schoenstatt, located just over an hour west of Sydney, is set on 50 acres of bushland and open fields. It offers both accommodation and conference facilities, making it an ideal location for group retreats, reflection days, seminars, craft gatherings, and conferences.
