Encircled by mountains in beautiful country adjoining Wrattens State Forest in the Jimna Range, Qld. is Hope Valley's 1375 acres .

Apart from the restorative beauty of the land we also have a Droughtmaster Cattle Stud, a horse, chickens, a dog and a cat. We get lots of lovely fresh eggs from the chickens. We also have a lot of fruit trees and two vegetable gardens

In the long term we see this site as offering the perfect setting for kids camps, spiritual retreat and renewal for individuals and families. Providing a restorative opportunity for single parents, families with a disabled member, pastoral families and those recently exited from the ministry, and many others in need of an opportunity to rest and reflect.
