Family Retreat

BATEMANS BAY, NSW

WELCOME TO FIONA LODGE, BATEMANS BAY, NSW

ABOUT US

Ronald McDonald Family Retreat, Batemans Bay is a very special stress free holiday environment where children who are fighting life-threatening illness can come with their families to enjoy time together.

Our seaside holiday retreat is free for the families from across Australia and provides an oasis of calm amongst the local surroundings. Set amongst stunning coastal scenery it’s a fantastic opportunity for families to enjoy their time together and regain their strength to fight the illness.

 

STAYING WITH US

At Fiona Lodge, it’s up to you and your family how you spend your time together. Take a day trip to one of Bateman Bay’s stunning beaches, meander along the streets of Mogo and explore the Mogo Zoo or cruise up the Clyde River.

Or spend your days enjoying the Retreat and everything it has to offer. From fuse ball, to cards and scrabble there’s a range of activities. Take a stroll along the boardwalk to the viewing platform with 180 degree views of the Pacific Ocean, feed the local possums under the starry skies – after you’ve cooked up a feast on the BBQ – then sit back with a good book and soak up the atmosphere with the people you love.
