About Elm Grove

Elm Grove Sanctuary at Goobarragandra, near Tumut in the Snowy Mountains of NSW, was founded by Laurel & Edwin Lloyd-Jones in February, 1983, to provide a place of demonstration of responsible environmental sustainability and a place for retreat and renewal.

During the following nineteen years the sanctuary provided a valuable resource and support for guests, families, groups, schools and educational institutions.

Elm Grove Mountain Retreat is a place of peace and tranquility away from the stresses of modern life.

It is internet and phone-free to ensure your continued peace and time to discover yourself. However, these facilities are available at the main house should they be required for urgent messages.

Mobile service is available 12km down the road or you can use satellite phone if you have one.
