St Joseph's Guest House:

The Guesthouse is a building in the abbey grounds, outside the monastic enclosure, set aside for use by those who want to have a time of spiritual refreshment.

Christians of all denominations and those of other faiths who wish to seek God are welcome.

Guests may join the community in the Daily Office (except Vigils) and Eucharist (when available). Guests have their main meal in the abbey refectory (midday) and self-cater for breakfast and evening meal in the guest house. Basic food items are available in the guest house. Towels and linen are provided, but guests are also welcome to bring their own. For health and safety reasons there are no electric blankets. The house has four bedrooms. There are two showers and toilets.

There is no set charge to stay at the Guest House, but a suggested donation is $$75.00 - $85.00 ($85.00 - $90.00 in winter months) per person per night.

Subiaco in early stages of refurbishment.

We are excited to announce that available soon is:


A new accommodation unit being established in the abbey grounds.

Subiaco will lend itself especially to those who want more silence and solitude during their stay, use by longer term guests, Community volunteers and small groups.

Set apart from other buildings with spectacular views of Lake Bullen Merri and beyond, this accommodation with its spacious four bedrooms and two bathrooms, sitting/dining area and small kitchen, will be of benefit to many.
