If Long Point Conference Centre isn’t available on the dates required by your group, then Camp Kedron is one of several alternative venues which may be available.
Camp Kedron is located about 40km north of Sydney, New South Wales, close to the Northern Beaches of Sydney. It is a Christian Camp Retreat and Conference Centre and provides fully catered stays for groups of up to 130 people. Groups that typically come to Kedron include churches, youth groups and schools.
The easiest and most direct way to drive to Camp Kedron is by taking the M1 to Crows Nest. Take the Brook St exit towards Naremburn and turn right onto Brook St. Continue for about 1.5km and then turn right onto Edinburgh Rd. Use the left two lanes to turn left onto the Eastern Valley Way and continue for about 3km. Turn right on the A38/Warringah Rd which takes you over the Roseville Bridge. After about 5km turn left onto Forest Road and continue for about 6km. Turn right onto Mona Vale Rd and then left onto Tunburra St after about 5km. Turn left into Emmaus Rd and after about 280m the camp will be on your left.
Accommodation at Camp Kedron consists of 4 lodges: Goanna Lodge, Possum Lodge, Bandicoot Lodge and Python Lodge. Together these lodges can sleep up to 130 people. The main dining and conference centre is where you will be served all your home cooked meals, including breakfast, morning tea, lunch and dinner. There is a separate indoor sports centre and an outdoor playing field as well as recreational areas. A smaller conference room is also available for smaller groups.
Camp Kedron provides a range of sporting and recreation equipment that its guests are free to use. It also offers activities such as indoor rock climbing and archery. Extra charges may apply for these activities since a qualified instructor may need to be present. Make sure that you clarify this at the time of booking. This venue sits on the edge of the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. This is a popular tourist destination, known for its connection with the Hawkesbury River. There are a range of walks, activities and attractions available all year round, regardless of the season. Fishing is very popular during summer at The Basin, and Barrenjoey Head is an excellent spot for whale watching. Picnic areas are scattered throughout the national park. Bobbin Head is a great waterfront picnic area with a children’s playground. It has barbeque facilities and is a great place to go bushwalking, canoeing and fishing.
On the east of Camp Kedron is the Mona Vale Beach, only 15 minutes’ drive away. It is a very clean and safe beach with lifeguards and flags. It has a beautiful rockpool that you can swim in, and walking south along the beach an easy flat beach walk. If you’re lucky you might spot whales or dolphins. Behind the beach is a nice barbeque area with a children’s playground, and its not known to be crowded. There are good cafés close by and plenty of parking. There is also a shower block with change rooms. It is a great place to go all year round.
