This is a non-profit Christian Retreat & Conference Centre located about 70km east of Melbourne, on 200 acres, nestled in the foothills of Mt Donna Buang, in Victoria’s beautiful Yarra Valley. Each year we host retreats and conferences for church groups, schools, scouts, craft groups, artists, carers etc. We also have a fully operational farm and raise beef cattle. Several thousand guests stay here each year as individuals or groups, and we often have volunteers, including international visitors, staying with us who remain great friends for life.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join our team and experience life in a beautiful rural environment with other like-minded people including volunteers from all over the world. We are surrounded by National forest and other rural properties and have many native animals and birds on site.

We are seeking a small number of volunteers to help with the day to day operation of our centre including hospitality, housekeeping, helping in the kitchen, creating and maintaining a herb and vegetable garden, farm work, lawn mowing and grounds, helping in the office and also getting involved with some of our outreach activities.

Our volunteers come from all walks of life and for varying lengths of time depending on their availability, people in between jobs, students, gap year, retired people and couples, international visitors, backpackers, Ideal for those interested in hospitality to get some experience and training, people at a crossroads in their lives, or simply looking for the warmth of community.

We need you all!

We are all volunteers and have a fantastic team and community spirit, with great food and accommodation facilities. You’ll get your own room, use of a car when available, lots of support and more.

These are volunteer positions so there is no wage but also no cost for food and accommodation, etc. We work 5 days and have 2 days off. Volunteers staying with us for 12 months also get an interstate trip. It's a great opportunity for a truly worthwhile experience.

If you'd like to apply, please email telling us a little about yourself. Also please include your Facebook link if you have one.
