The retreat will commence after lunch on Monday 28th October and conclude after lunch on Wednesday 30th October.  Invitees are asked to attend the entire retreat and to expect to be actively engaged with others for most of the time we are together – whether in formal sessions or informal breaks.  

Retreat venue

Ian Darling and Malinda Wink have kindly offered Australia reMADE the use of the tranquil and beautiful Shark Island Institute Kangaroo Valley for this retreat.  The Kangaroo Valley is serenely stunning, located 2 hours from both Sydney and Canberra in NSW. The Institute is a private residence and a space for Shark Island Institute activities, and we are deeply grateful to Ian and Malinda for agreeing to share this place with us. 

Shark Island Retreat is a mountain lodge with a separate play-shed for screenings, workshops, rehearsals and meetings; a great place to nourish body, mind and soul and to inspire our collective thinking. Delicious meals will be provided. Once RSVPs have been confirmed we will share the log-in details with guests so you can learn more about the venue itself.


As a guest of Shark Island and Australia reMADE, the cost of your meals and accommodation will be covered.
