Tallong reviews and testimonials

Marist College Canberra Mission Team

Marist College Canberra have been coming to Santa Sabina College, Tallong for many years and have continued to find a warm, welcoming place to bring our Year 12 Retreat groups. The bushland setting is such a wonderful space for reflection, learning and for the replenishing of our spirits.

The hospitality team are to be congratulated for their ability to meet our needs and have improved their facilities to enhance our experience. A highlight for us are the delicious and generous meals that are always served on time by the friendly team. Thanks to all the team who help us from the time of our booking all the way through to making our retreats such a success.

As always the weekend is very pleasant, serene and perfect location for a break.

Abbotsleigh School

Best camp I have been on in 30 years! Our Tallong instructor was wonderful!!! Thank you.

Absolutely fantastic, staff are so considerate, happy and friendly. Thank you so much.


Lovely bush setting, great number of break-out rooms.  Food was scrumptious and healthy with very friendly staff and they were very helpful (nothing I asked for was a problem).

It’s a lovely site and I notice the staff enjoy working here which adds heaps to the experience of being here at Tallong.  I appreciate the art work and Aboriginal acknowledgments in your signage.

Excellent site in a beautiful setting – warm fires – great atmosphere and warmth.

Ravenswood School for Girls

I was so impressed with how the Tallong instructor handled my group. He was exceptional. I was also very impressed with the bike riding skills taught to the girls and the equipment provided.  Naturally the food was brilliant – as usual.

‘I really enjoyed our year 7 camp as a teacher!  Your facilities are amazing, staff are very friendly and helpful.  Food is fantastic and the teachers’ accommodation is cosy and clean. I want to dedicate special thanks to our Tallong group leader, who did a more than perfect job in the past few days!  She is respected and trusted by all the students in our group and me. She made the seemingly difficult activities so much fun with her humour and great ideas, as well as her care and sincerity to everyone. I’m sure this is an unforgettable experience for all the members of our group.

Santa Sabina College
