quote El Rancho has proven to be a fantastic venue for our karate club to hold training camps. It’s great to find a facility where you don’t have to leave the grounds for the whole duration of the camp. The accommodation is extremely comfortable, kitchen and food great and the training area spacious. Our Karate training camps have been a huge success and we look forward to returning to El Rancho in the future.closequote

Community Groups

We host a colourful variety of community groups at El Rancho each year.  Some of these include:
  • Support groups for conditions such as Haemophilia, Diabetes, Cancer and Mental Illness.
  • Government agencies and businesses, who utilise our facilities for workshops, seminars and team building.
  • Art and Craft groups, where participants spend a weekend working on their creations while we do the cooking.
  • Writers groups, where delegates can get away from the busyness of life and be inspired within our stunning native setting.
