The Standrings, the land and community relationships

Our family arrived on the land in July 2018 with the intention of a tree change. What we hadn't expected was the intention of the land and CrookNeck Retreat opened in April of 2007. Since then the retreat has grown into a spectacular space of regeneration and creativity. As custodians of the land we had a calling to open the space for retreats and to create community. It is a privilege to call this place our home and to be able to share the beauty and wonder of CrookNeck Retreat and the breath-giving Glasshouse Mountains.
