Parakaleo Centre

Set against the silhouette of iconic Mt. Roland rests the Parakaleo Centre.  Specifically designed as a haven away from a busy world, the Centre provides a unique merging of Tasmania’s natural environment and corporate functionality. Those attending this unique facility are immediately struck by the peace and tranquility of their surroundings which encourages achievement of new levels of self awareness, Spiritual and emotional wellbeing.

The Parakaleo  Centre offers basic accommodation for individuals, families and groups seeking time out from significant life issues, the opportunity to relax, bond, grow and reconnect or simply rest from troubled times.

The Centre is ideal for those wishing to engage in Spiritual reflection, find solace and healing in isolation or more structured training days and weekends. At the Centre you may enjoy the nature trail in unspoilt bushland with its personal reflection points and natural creek, easily access the nearby Dasher River or enjoy one of the nearby and onsite scenic walks and take in breath taking views of Mt. Roland. Take the time to examine the wide range of unique flora, watch for the rare grey goshawk and birds of prey circling overhead or observe the abundant wildlife that frequents the grounds at dusk.

In addition to its natural setting, the Parakaleo Centre offers a training and workshop facility with several buildings ideal for small group work, newly installed media centre, a full size kitchen, barbecue areas, gazebo, spacious grounds and walking tracks. As a corporate retreat Parakaleo is unique in its location enabling abundant space and a relaxed atmosphere ideal for training days, executive planning weekends and effective team building.

The Centre is available at reasonable cost based upon individual circumstance and requirements. Trained CLS staff can be made available for counselling services for individuals, retreats and reflection days if required. CLS also provide speakers for corporate events and organisations in support of its mission and values.

The Parakaleo Centre  is made available as the result of many volunteer hours and donations made by business and industry, service clubs and church groups in support of the valuable mission of Choose Life Services. CLS acknowledges the ongoing  contributions of those groups and individuals.
