WELCOME TO VETERAN'S RETREAT
Veteran’s Retreat is a registered charity care farm owned by 20 year Army veteran Kylie and her young family. The retreat is 100% volunteer run and is open to all serving members, veterans, first responders and their families/carers.
We offer day visits, overnight stays, animal therapy, holistic wellness events, emergency and respite accommodation, homeless veteran care and more.
Our key focus is on meaningful engagement.
Veterans Retreat is home to a wonderful array of Farm Animals. These include Horses, Ponies, a Donkey, Sheep, Cows and Poultry. Each of them requires their own unique level of care and have their own quirky personality.
Keep updated here or on Facebook with our upcoming events. Did you also know you can host events at our venue? Feel free to contact us with the details, we look forward to working together with like-minded people, organisations and groups.
STAY WITH US
We have a number of facilities here to make your stay as pleasant as possible. We cater for everything from swags, tents, camper trailers, caravans and motor homes as well and are currently converting an old military container into two-room accommodation for those unable to camp due to their injuries.
If we don’t have what you are looking for please send us a message as orders are always being taken and we can place you on the backorder list. Additionally, all of our merchandise is on sale at the Retreat and EFTPOS is available.
THINGS TO DO
Gympie is known as “the town that saved Queensland” when gold was discovered by James Nash in 1867, who originally named the town “Nashville”. There are so many things to see and do in and around our region as well as on the farm.
“A massive thanks to Kylie for having us at the veterans retreat last night. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and loved getting up close to some of the beautiful animals. Looking forward to staying again in the future.”
Kylie you deserve support! You have worked hard to be the positive woman you are. I love your energetic lifestyle and have seen at first hand the support you give to your fellow Veterans and the local Gympie community groups. Wow, a beautiful woman with a big heart and a wonderful mother to two beautiful kids. Your offer for Veterans to make use of the Retreat is thoughtful and generous. The 40 acre Veterans Retreat is a place which will heal Veterans. Thank you.
