Creative – Corporate – Craft Retreats. Exclusively for groups of 6 to 20 adults.

Nestled in the hills of South Gippsland, Victoria awaits The Old Hospital. Originally a country hospital, it is now a newly refurbished guest house. The Old Hospital is an ideal retreat for quilting, patchwork, sewing, scrapbook and book groups as well as corporate groups.

The Old Hospital is surrounded by quaint cafes, a brewery and gin distillery, antique store and artist galleries. The Old Hospital is a short drive from scenic wineries and the Gourmet Gippsland Trail. Visit on a Sunday and you may catch the Kongwak Market, a treasury of vintage delights.

Focus on your work, rest and play.
