About us

Gembrook Retreat is a 22 acre property that was given in trust by Maggie Dunkle, a Quaker woman, in 2000. Maggie believed that guests would experience spiritual renewal through connection with the land.

The Trust purposes are carried out by a Working Group which meets monthly.

The Working Group, including volunteers and residents of the Black Cockatoo House of Welcome, take care of the day to day running of Gembrook Retreat, welcoming guests, and looking after the guest spaces and the land.

Guests coming to the Retreat can find the office along from the Gate 2 car park.
