Thanks for checking in to see what my next retreat is all about.  If you've seen the initial email, skip to the second photo for the 'more information' I promised.  Hopefully I'll be able to add some more photos soon, so check back as we get closer to the date.

I’ve found a gorgeous venue, not too far to drive and right by the seaside.    We’ll be able to sit and enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine after our day scrapping.   Or you can scrap into the night of course!

Contact me for more information - just $50 deposit will secure your place, monthly payment plans for the rest is optional (

*limited twin rooms are available if preferred.

Our venue, the Sisters of St John of God Retreat Centre in Shoalwater (Rockingham), is set on five acres of landscaped gardens opposite the ocean.   I have had some great feedback from friends who have stayed here – they tell me the food is fantastic and the beds are very comfortable.   Just one road back from the beach with the Seaview apartments looking over a park to the beach.   It’s a beautiful beach for swimming – sheltered by Penguin and Seal Islands, so bring your water-wings if you fancy a dip (not compulsory).

I’m still preparing the weekend, but you can be sure we will have a special AZZA PROJECT, prizes, lots of scrapping and generally have a good time with friends new and old.

Craft Room
One table & chair per person, with access to outside for some fresh air.  Fully air conditioned with a kitchenette with open tea & coffee facilities.

Breakout Room
The Seaview Apartment will have an ‘Azza shop’ and space for relaxing and socialising.  It has a lounge, dining and kitchen area and a small terrace/garden to enjoy the sunset.

Lunch is the main meal of the day, and like Breakfast and Dinner is buffet style.  This enables you to choose the options and amount that fit with your preferences and dietary requirements – some limited diet options will be specially catered for, but hopefully most people’s needs are covered by the buffet.

Morning and afternoon tea are provided, along with hot drink facilities next to the craft room and in Seaview Apartment.  You are welcome to bring your own alcohol.

The Retreat Centre
There is a chapel for quiet contemplation and the gardens have a Labyrinth, Poustinia, Grotto, Stations of the Cross and several areas to just sit and relax.  Please note it is a non-smoking venue, and it does have Wi-Fi access.

Most rooms are single en-suite rooms, all have full linen provided and are air-conditioned.  We have 10 rooms above the craft room (Ferns House) and four rooms in a separate building (Seaview Apartment).  Three of these are twin rooms, one of which is on the ground floor (no stairs, but further to walk).   If you would prefer / be prepared to share please indicate on your booking form.  There will be a slight reduction in the charge for a shared room ($5 per person).  One of the rooms in Seaview is a double room, so if you have a partner who would like to come but not scrap please ask me about the options for them.

Everyone will receive a pack of Azza goodies and training & support from trained Azza Consultant (me and possibly another consultant or two if I can persuade them to join us).
