Men's Retreat


Men have you ever wanted to go on a manly men’s only retreat?  A retreat where you do manly things, eat manly food and talk manly talk.  Not a sundried tomatoes, cos lettuce and feta cheese salad retreat, but one with great big steaks cooked on an open fire and the only vegetable in sight is the tomato sauce!   

If your answer is yes, book yourself into the Koora Men’s Retreat.  Starting late afternoon on Friday 22 July 2016 and going through to lunch time Sunday 24 July 2016, it will be a time for men from all churches to gather and explore spirituality.  It will be a time of men sharing stories and listening to some of Peter Harrison’s stories of living in the wilderness.  A time to do manly things like chopping wood, constructing things and generally helping out Koora.

If you are travelling from Perth, Koora is situated about 70 kms after (east of) Southern Cross. You can travel to Koora by either personal transport or travel to Southern Cross by train and be picked up and taken the last part of the journey by a Koora representative.  Travel costs are not part of the retreat cost. 

Retreat activities will be rounded up by Rev William Thomas, one of two Anglican Mission Priests in the Goldfields. 

William has a great array of possible activities planned, from rustling around in Peter's local 'storage area' to climbing high mountains, swimming deep waters, and pondering the meaning of life around the campfire.
