The Conference and Retreat Centre


Set in the beautifully maintained gardens, Holy Cross Centre offers you a retreat from a noisy and busy world and it’s only a short drive from Melbourne City Centre.

The facilities are suitable for a number of different uses ranging from educational seminars, spiritual courses, conferences or group development.

The Passionist community, who make Holy Cross their home, warmly invites you to experience the tranquillity of the environment that has been host to many groups and individuals over the years. They are happy to share this oasis with anyone who needs a place to rest.


The Centre has accommodation for 80 people; rooms are twin share, (some double beds) all centrally heated. Bathroom facilities are shared. There is an accessible bathroom for people with disability.

“Give yourself the rest you need. When you are walking alone, listen to the sermon preached to you by the flowers, the trees, the shrubs, the sky, the sun and whole world. Notice how they preach to you a sermon of love, of praise of God, and how they invite you to proclaim the greatness of the one who has given them being.”st paul of the cross
