Nestled amongst the beautiful hills of Yarra Junction, Benwerren is a lovely old rambling guest house. Beneath it flows the Little Yarra River, an ideal place for a break away.
“It’s not the house, it’s not the food, it’s not the countryside – but it’s the people.”
“Feels like coming home to Nana’s”
I loved the care and nurturing love and support I got. No judging, no criticism, no bossing me around.
At one of the most difficult times in my life, staying at Benwerren has given me the courage to continue on, and the encouragement to feel more positive about our future.
Thank you for the difference you have made to my life since I first visited this year. The space, time, generosity, kindness and love I have experienced has allowed me to heal, recharge and return to my family, and also to myself, with more to give. I have felt so nurtured and cared for, and the effect this has ripples out to the special people in my life, as they now get the best of me.”
“Our experience of Benwerren was life changing, my little girl is a non-verbal autistic who struggled with the everyday life of people, noise and the unknown. Then she received the “touch of Benwerren”. A miracle happened – my daughter kicked so many goals it was exciting.
My greatest wish was granted, all thanks to holiday at Benwerren. They’re in our hearts forever.”
I felt warm safe and wanted. I felt my feelings mattered and I felt I could relax and not be a controlling person because I felt wanted.
“I’ve never felt safe before in all my life, until now”
