General Information and Ethos of Eagle’s Nest

Eagle’s Nest is a formation and retreat centre wholly owned and operated by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Perth, Western Australia.

The centre is located at 1406 O’Brien Road in Gidgegannup, Western Australia. It is off Toodyay Road and backs onto Walyunga National Park. It occupies 17 hectares, mostly natural bush.

Eagle’s Nest was established by the Catholic community for personal and spiritual formation. It is not a holiday or convention centre, but a facility set aside specifically for growth in faith and development of Christian values. As such, Eagles Nest differs from other centres. It is not for private holiday or purely recreational hire, and all users are required to maintain the Christian ethos of the centre in their conduct and activities.

Eagle’s Nest is available primarily to Catholic youth organisations and movements, and to schools and parishes. It may also be made available to adult groups, and to youth groups from other denominations.

All users of Eagle’s Nest are required to be familiar with, and to follow, the Conditions of Use which are provided to them for their information.
