The Centre is a spacious and comfortable venue for Conferences, Adult Learning, Corporate Training, and residential community gatherings. We have comfortable accommodation for 12-24 persons, and camping options.
The Silver Wattle Annual Learning Program offers short courses, workshops and directed retreats:
- spiritual formation and prayer
- Quaker heritage and processes in decision-making and reconciliation
- preparing for active witness in nonviolent social change
- training in sustainable living
- a meeting space within the setting of a Spirit-led Quaker community.
Serious seekers of all faith traditions are welcome to join our courses and events.
Meeting for Worship in the Quaker manner is held on 2nd and 4th Sundays each month, at 11am – 12 noon (except when closed for summer and winter breaks). You are welcome to join us. Please check the calendar.
All photographs on this webpage were taken on-site, by Silver Wattle staff. We do not use photos from other sources.
We acknowledge and express our thanks for the skilled landscape, wildlife and venue photos taken by Susan Clarke, resident Cook and Compassionate Communication Course leader.
We are seeking further support to sustain the Centre in the long-term.
The SWQC Board recognises the work done and financial support given over the last five years, by many individuals and Quaker meetings. There is much yet to be done and we are confident Way will continue to open in the future.
If you can help – by donation or voluntary work - please email us and we will arrange a conversation with you.
