What a wonderful facility and to have such an opportunity after my 18 month journey through breast cancer, leaves me speechless. So tranquil, spacious, clean, and catered for all needs. My batteries have been recharged and I'm now ready to move forward with my positive healthy life.
Lying here on our last night at St Jude's, Mandurang and looking out on the moonlight on the gum trees through floor to ceiling windows. This place is special - you can feel the energies swirling all around. We loved Bendigo and all it's arty pleasures too!
