As a ministry of Queensland Baptists Queensland Conference and Camping Centres’ venues enjoy a rich spiritual heritage. Tamborine’s breathtaking Gold Coast views have hosted Christian Conventions since 1958. Brookfield in Brisbane used to be a Bible College and Mapleton on the Sunshine Coast is 35 acres of breathtaking rainforest beauty. Each venue is a popular destination for Spiritual Retreats from Christian Schools and groups such as Walk to Emmaus and Cursillo. The tranquillity of our sites and the Christian ethos of our staff ensure the success of Spiritual Retreats for all groups.
