What our clients say...
"Camp Glenorchy is set in a tranquil location with beautiful mountain views. The service from Simon, Prakash and the whole team from start to finish was outstanding! The food was delicious, the chef was amazing and catered for everyone's dietary requirements. The conference room was stunning and set up for our requirements with state-of-the-art technology. The outside fireplace was a highlight as was the formal dinner. The cabins are well set out to accommodate a group and we all enjoyed the sustainability tour and yoga classes. It was great to have a space we could both work and socialise from (with seamless internet and phone connectivity), as well as loads of fun things to do in the local area when we wanted to play! Highly recommend Camp Glenorchy for a business conference/retreat." Brendon O. Oct 2021
