Perth Holiday Part 3 - Shoalwater Retreat

Our final place to explore and stay was south of Perth in Shoalwater. We had booked at a retreat centre I found online - and what a find! The Sisters of St John of God retreat centre is a large and beautifully run retreat centre with single rooms, larger family units, conference rooms etc. It is just across the road from a magnificent stretch of the Indian Ocean which is also a marine reserve. Due to the cancellation of a large group we (and one man on retreat) were the only people there for the week! We were accommodated in a suite with two bedrooms, kitchen, lounge and bathroom! But all meals were beautifully provided in the dining room.

This speaks for itself!
