Conference and recreation centres

Collaroy Centre, NSW


The Collaroy Centre offers a unique venue on Sydney’s Northern Beaches with a wide range of outdoor activities for school camps, conferences and retreats. Surrounded by natural bushland, we offer breathtaking views and are conveniently located 30 minutes north of the Sydney CBD.

The Collaroy Centre is an experienced provider of school camps. We offer a unique blend of learning experiences, outdoor facilities and activities delivered through a professional outdoor education program. While the students are enjoying fun activities, they are also learning fundamental skills around communication, decision making, problem-solving, resilience, team building and leadership.

As well as hosting school camps, birthday parties, conferences and retreats, we also seek to assist Aussie's doing it tough by running and supporting community programs.
