Mount Carmel Retreat Centre

  • Many men and women have found healing, hope and renewal in an experience of the living God at Mount Carmel.
  • Newly renovated and expanded in 2012, all rooms now feature ensuites and many have double beds. More rooms are now available with direct, level access to the prayer room, dining room and chapel.
  • We offer a wide variety of retreats, specialising in contemplative retreats embodying the spirituality of Saints Teresa, John of the Cross and Therese and other spiritual masters of the Carmelite tradition.
  • It is a place to rest, relax and enjoy the community's life and prayer in beautiful settings.
  • Close to the M5 and M7 and trains, Mt Carmel provides the closest retreat experience to Sydney yet with room to move on the large 300 acre property.
