Wominjeka (Welcome)

Gembrook Retreat is a 22-acre property on Boon Wurrung/Wurundjeri country in Victoria, given in trust to be run as a place of spiritual retreat and renewal. We invite people on to the land to encounter God in creation, and to equip each other to live a soulful life.

The Retreat is maintained by Quakers Jane and Steve Hope and their children, and Samara Pitt. There is also a wider volunteer community governed by the values of hospitality, simplicity, community and care for the land.

We welcome individuals, couples, families and small groups to run self-directed and self-catered retreats. Whether you come for an afternoon or for a few days, it is our wish that you experience the abundance that this land has to share.

Chestnut Harvest Day 2021

It was great to have a good crowd coming to this year’s chestnut harvest day. Chestnuts were collected, roasted and dragged up the hill to be turned into many delicious meals in the coming weeks! Thanks everyone who came, picnicked, enjoyed a day on the land and donated to support the work of Gembrook Retreat.
