History

Mt Hutt Retreat is owned and operated by the Seventh Day Adventist Church as a place where young people can experience nature and further their relationship with God in a fun filled environment, creating memories to last an eternity. 

The property was donated to the Seventh day Adventist Church in the late 50s by Ray Barlass. Over the years a number of buildings were constructed for accommodation, including the relocation of some retired Rail Wagons.

The land was used for recreation and running camps for young people using the great out doors as a medium to care for their Body, Mind and Soul. 

Sixty years of use has seen a number of changes in name, accommodation and available activities. Over the years the facility has been used for school camps, winter camps, wedding functions, and church groups from all denominations.

Today our focus remains the same . . . Creating memories to last an eternity.
