Connect by disconnecting

In the old days they called ’em 'corporate retreats' - but there's really nothing 'corporate' about Woodhouse. Let’s just say that teams come here to 'reconnect by disconnecting'. It ain't luxurious. And that's the way we like it!

We know there’s nothing like the simple pleasures of simpler times to get the juices flowing. And if you share our vision and want your team to re-live a little piece of their childhood with the whole 'school camp' experience, we have the place for you... 

It's not your average conference venue... but where's the fun in planning an average conference? 



  • Unlimited use of Woodhouse activities, offering a great team-building element to help strengthen both leadership skills and working relationships between staff – or some fun activities to enjoy in their downtime.
  • Exclusive venue hire including accommodation (school-camp style!), several large indoor activity/meeting spaces and self-contained commercial kitchen - choose from Rymill Centre (sleeps up to 82), Old Woodhouse Manor (sleeps up to 60) or Hooper Bunkhouse (sleeps up to 50).
  • Campfires (outside bushfire danger season), nature walks… and a lifetime of memories.
  • Woodhouse also offers a great base to explore all that the beautiful Adelaide Hills has to offer - check out our favourite local eateries, attractions and cellar doors



The cook and the chef

Nothing maintains morale at conferences more than good food. While you're welcome to self-cater or share the love and support some of our favourite local eateries (or cellar doors), our resident catering team has our guests coming back time again, using only the highest quality and freshest ingredients, and sourcing local Adelaide Hills produce wherever possible. 

Together, the duo leading this team take great pride in being able to combine the artistry of a commercially trained chef with the natural flair of a great home style cook.


Tailored activity programming and facilitation

With so much at your fingertips right here on site, you can easily plan your own "self-guided" adventures with our available activities and equipment, but why not let us tailor a team-building program for you? The only thing our Activity Facilitators like more than hanging out with you, is ordering you around while they do it. 



We don't believe a 'cookie cutter' approach has any place here at Woodhouse and take great pride in tailoring every program to your requirements to achieve your desired outcomes. Flick us an email with your preferred dates/time frame, approx. number of guests and loose plan of how your retreat will play out and we'll get started!
