One of the greatest benefits of using the Rawson Village facility is its ability to accommodate 250+ staff and students as our school continues to grow. The accommodation and facilities are always clean, safe and welcoming for both staff and students. Additionally, the number of breakout/meeting rooms available works very well with our retreat program and allows us to have more intimate sessions with the students. The surrounding environment is beautiful and means that the students can enjoy the outdoors in their free time.
We had a wonderful wellbeing retreat weekend, everyone wanted to stay longer. Thank you to all the staff at Rawson for making the stay so wonderful and to the chef for catering to our extensive dietary needs.
PYV has enjoyed staying at Rawson on a bi-annual basis for many years now, and we are very happy with our choice of venue for a regional camp in winter & a state-wide Summer Camp. Rawson Village provides us with great value for money, which is very important for an organisation such as ours.
