Schools catered accommodation

Snoozing students? You bet. Your students will sleep easy in our lakeside dorm style lodge rooms. Separate teacher’s rooms are close by, so you can get a good night's sleep while keeping an eye on your students.


Our lakeside lodges sleep approx. 36 people, mostly with four to six students per room and a teacher's room, all with ensuites. Our lodges are recently renovated and have large common rooms with expansive views across Lake Macquarie.


Acacia and Grevillea lodges are accessible for people with a disability.

Our meals

The dining hall is the beating heart of our centre. The scene of healthy and nutritious daily meals, rowdy chatter, and satisfied faces. We know your students will love our meals, but so will their parents. Our catering team understand what needs to be done with allergies and special diets, and lovingly prepare all our meals to the highest standards. Students are encouraged to try new foods as part of the camp experience with the understanding there will be some fussy eaters. Our camp experts work with you to meet these needs.


Clients are asked not to share their food with other clients under any circumstance or to take food from other clients as each client has their own dietary requirements and this is to reduce the risk of cross contamination.

“I love coming to point Wolly, because the staff are awesome, the food is great, and they have such a wide variety of activities. I think another great thing the kids get a lot from, is that other schools come to camp too so they get to interact with kids that they might not normally interact with. I just love coming to Point Wolly..its great!”
