I attended a three day conference here recently and enjoyed every second. The rural location suited this country girl down to the ground. I awoke to a horse neighing happily in the paddock next to my room. The grounds are spacious and immaculately kept, and the roses! I was astounded and delighted by the variety, size, and heavenly scent of the gardens. The heritage buildings are maintained to perfection, and the amenities are second to none. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well appointed. The staff were professional, friendly, and couldn’t have been more helpful. The caterer did a decent job of looking after us too. In all, my stay here was a delight. I cannot recommend this centre highly enough for your next function/conference/retreat.
Edmund Rice Retreat and Conference Centre has some interesting information on why Australia is called the land down under?
Australia is known as 'the land Down Under' for its position in the southern hemisphere. The discovery of Australia began when European explorers searched for land under the continent of Asia. Before Australia was discovered, it was known as Terra Australis Incognita the unknown southern land.
