Edmund Rice Retreat & Conference Centre
A sense of serenity and close connection with nature have characterise
A place surrounded by gentle hills and beautiful trees and situated at the foothills of the Blue Mountains, it has provided a retreat from the noise and pollution of Sydney while at the same time being conveniently close to Penrith and some busy highways.
As a Retreat and Conference Centre it attracts many groups diverse in age and purpose, many of whom return each year . They do so because the sights and sounds of the flora and fauna induce reflectiveness, and guests are relaxed by the hospitality of the place, the quality of the catering and facilities, are thus enabled to immerse themselves in their various intellectual, spiritual or physical pursuits.

Each room has two single beds and an ensuite bathroom. Each cottage has one room with disabled access.
