  • When I visited Mary Mackillop'Place, I didn't have any religious affection. Because of her goodness, for her lifestyle, for her determination, holy, or not holy I respect her. Australia is proud of he...  more »
  • I was cynical and did not want to stay here! Bloody nuns bashed me up when I was a kid so why stay at one of their places now? The other half won this discussion so we arrived for a night in a one bed...  more »
  • What a calm, peaceful and respectful place. I stayed here for a work-related week. The facilities were clean, comfortable and pleasant. I felt happy with my accommodation which included an ensuite bat...  more »

  • Had items stolen from the room I had been staying at Mary Mackillop place 4 days a week, every week, for the past 4 month's and had ongoing bookings well into the future (1+ year). Everything was going fine until today i had items stolen from my room, i was working from the room that day and had money and other valuables sitting on my side table, i wanted a smoke so i placed the do not disturb sign on the door and went downstairs and outside (as they don't allow smoking on premise) -- i was gone for all of 2 minutes. When i came back upstairs to my room the cleaner was near my door and very nervously uttered a hello to me, after closing the door i noticed that my bed was made and things had been moved, there was money missing and 2 items had been taken!! I quickly went outside my room to confront the cleaner and found that she had moved all the way down the hallway into the end storage room and was down on her knee's when i got there, i asked her what she was doing (i presume stashing the money and goods) but she didn't answer me, i told her that i wasn't stupid and i wanted it back, to which she overacted the "i didn't take it see my pockets are empty" routine -- suffice to say that i have contacted the police, and immediately checked out and cancelled all of my future bookings. Completely untrustworthy!
  • Well maintained monument kept very clean and maintains the calm atmosphere. Good museum too.
  • I go to the Café there for morning or afternoon tea, often after praying at St Mary MacKillop's tomb in the chapel. Very nice, very affordable. All run by volunteers.
  • A truly informative experience which could lead to a deepening of one's spiritual connection to this peaceful place.
  • For those who are in need of faith awakening or renewal, or if you're just seeking a resting place to gather your thoughts and reflect on your blessings or misgivings, this is definitely a place to visit, On Friday morning, a friend took me to St Mary of the Cross MacKillop Place for an outing, where I wrote an ardent petition and placed it in the box. On our way out, we met a very interesting character in the foyer too, who added to the spiritual encounter. This morning, I woke up very early to ring a nephew overseas, who was celebrating his 21st birthday (having lost his mother suddenly two weeks before Easter) and he gave me the news that he had come into some very good luck on Friday. I was overjoyed as my petition was for a good luck break that would turn his and his sister's lives around for the better this year. His luck came in the form of a significant sponsorship through the generosity of a stranger who thanked him for his kindness and companionship when he wasn't feeling well. The power of prayer is far more than co-incidence. I truly believe that through the intercession of St Mary of the Cross, MacKillop, my prayer was answered! Thanks be to God. I therefore implore anyone who is on the edge of despair, to pay a visit and you will come out feeling enriched!
