School Holiday Periods
Victorian School holiday periods are reserved for clergy bookings until 2 weeks prior to the holiday period, at which time any vacancies will become generally available. During school holidays preference is given to clergy with school-age children (NB: this does not include grandchildren). You can express your interest in booking during these periods by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
During the Christmas (December/January) holiday period bookings are allocated to clergy via a ballot system. Clergy of the Bendigo Diocese will be advised when applications for the ballot are open.
Please note, Eddington is only available for one stay of up to 7 nights per family in a calendar year.
Cleaning: Professional cleaning is conducted after every guest check-out and is separate from the general clean & tidy, which is a conditional requirement of the occupants prior to check out. This adds an additional single cost to each reservation and increases on Saturdays and Sundays. Fees are as follows:
Check- out on a weekday: $115
Check- out on a Saturday: $172.5
Check-out on a Sunday or Public Holiday: $230
