WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

This is a great weekend getaway to go to with friends and family. They have many fun activities like laser tag, drop fall (an activity where you climb up a pole and then fall while in a harness) and many more. A great place to visit is the Collaroy beach. It had large waves and it's fun to try and jump them. The centre also feeds people very well with breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and then supper. Overall a great place to visit.

The Collaroy centre was a gracious host to our most recent UN Youth conference. They made various rooms available to us during our weekend long workshop and provided average to above average food options. They catered well to those with allergies and other dietry requirements and served food in a fast and friendly fashion. There are several different sized rooms in which our workshops could be held, as well as various outside areas that were sheltered and close together. Expect that other guests may also be staying whilst your group is there. The main balcony which is connected to the dining room/reception/large conference room has a scenic view of the nearby Collaroy beach which holds gorgeous sunrises. The Collaroy centre is a seven minute up-hill walk from the closest bustop and just over an hour bus/train ride from central station (Ultimo). I recommend Collaroy for any future conferences / school camps.

My church group has used the Collaroy Centre for many years and we keep going back because it's good. It's getting more expensive which is a negative and their management is not as flexible as before, but still we will keep going because it is clean has a great location and has good food.

Great place, parking is a bit tight and the road leading in is way too narrow. But my child had a great band camp stay here and loved it. Beautiful grounds with sweeping views out to sea.

I work at The Collaroy Centre and just love the atmosphere of the beautiful grounds, the spectacular views and the great people. Everyone is intentional about serving and helping clients and each other. Has to be the best kept secret in Sydney, and the Northern Beaches!

I've been working at The Collaroy Centre for 5 years and love it to bits. The staff are some of the most wonderful people you will ever meet and the site is one of the most beautiful locations in Sydney. My favorite part of the job is assisting youth to complete challenges they never thought they could, and seeing the smiles on their faces when they accomplish what they set out to do!

TCC, What a special place this is. This facility is spectacular!The Salvos have really polished this little gem with their enthusiasm and amazing service. They really do care and it shows. It's not what they do or say but how they make you feel. It's hard not to enjoy this location and its surrounding areas.
