About Us

Adavale Veterans Retreat was originally conceived by a small group of Veterans who purchased an acre plot of land with an old, dilapidated, derelict, corrugated iron hut on it, which had been built nearly 100 years ago, to use as an escape for themselves.​​


With the demise of Alaric Homestead as a retreat they decided to donate the land to the charity that had been established. 

The now ACNC registered charity is called ADAVALE VETERANS RETREAT and is fully run by unpaid volunteers and is currently manned for most of the year.

​​Over the past 3 years the retreat has been fully fenced, eight air-conditioned units each with en suite installed, see Accommodation page.

Units have a septic system plus hot and cold water. Solar power with lithium batteries (to reduce power costs) plus a storage donga to keep all equipment etc under cover. 

We also now have two air-conditioned units, which include a full commercial kitchen, dining room and bar and interconnecting verandah.   


The original Hut is continuing to be restored and being used as a gathering place and display area for memorabilia.


Volunteering at Adavale Veterans Retreat is a fantastic way to support our Service People and First Responders to Relax, Rest and Recover in one of Australia’s most beautiful landscapes!


The current volunteer caretakers carry out planned work projects, so there is an appeal for anyone who can give us some of their valuable time to come out and help us with restoration, work projects and maintenance.

​​All donations are greatly appreciated to help with ongoing projects and running costs.
