School groups are well accommodated for at Genazzano Retreat

 There are 3 accommodation blocks at Genazzano Retreat

Since the opening of 'Genazzano Retreat' in the late eighties, hundreds of school groups from not only the Cairns region, but from ingham, Townsville and interstate have visited and made use of the facilities.

With a number of accommodation options available and flexibility with regards to catering, schools have been able to use the Genazzano Retreat for leadership camps along with Grade Camps and the site has endeared itself to Music and Choir camps with many amazing nights spent listening to choral celebrations and band concerts under the stars.

Genazzano Retreat has available sporting equipment and recreational items to provide hours of entertainment, team building exercises and the like.  The lake also provides a magnificent fresh water swimming opportunity - contrary to any myths of croc sightings!

An abundance of fresh water fish and some spectacular bird life, along with wallabies, roos and lizards and probably the extent of the fauna experience on offer!
