Murraguldrie Veterans Retreat


Murraguldrie Veterans Retreat run by V.V.A.A. South West N.S.W. & Wagga Inc and managed by the Sub–Branch committee, the retreat is now open and Veterans of all wars and conflicts and peacekeeping missions are most welcome this includes family members.
The retreat is located in the Murraguldrie State Forest and the entry to the retreat is 7km east of the Hume highway on the Wagga Tumbarumba Road (55km from Wagga Wagga and 45Km from Tumbarumba).

It’s close proximity to the Highway and nestled in the foothills of the “Australian High Country” and only a short drive to the High Country towns and dams with their spectacular scenery has seen many visitors change their previous travelling routes to include the retreat and this has seen most of our retreat visitors returning on numerous occasions.Murraguldrie 4

The retreat is now nearly at completion with a shelter shed with kitchen facilities, Toilet/Shower block with a “Donky” hot water system, and an almost completed “Donga” where you can drop your swag for an overnight stay. We are in the process of upgrading the toilet facilities to include a disabled toilet/shower to cater for some of the Veteran with limited mobility.

The retreats ongoing upkeep and maintenance is financed by our visitor’s kind donations and we thank them for their support.

The retreat has only tank water so please use it sparingly; likewise the wood is cut by the local veterans who are all getting older.

In the summer the Forestry will display fire ban’ signs and we also place one on the entry; so when these are displayed there is NO LIGHTING OF SOLID FUEL FIRES ON TOTAL FIRE BAN DAYS.

The entry gate to the retreat is locked, so to gain access to this retreat you need to contact one of the three designated retreat contacts whose names are below. They will inform you about the retreat and any restriction in force during your intended visit.

Since this sub-branch is required to carry the public liability insurance for the retreat we need to record your name in our register if you are not a members of the sub-branch; however all people using the retreat must sign the visitors book and peruse the retreat rules which are located in the shelter shed.
