Become a Friend of Saltbush

The Friends of Saltbush Program is a regular giving program established in 2023.


For over 30 years, Saltbush, Balnarring Beach has provided accommodation, retreats and programs to people who are living with challenging circumstances. A stay at Saltbush provides an opportunity for people to rest and reenergise in a peaceful and safe environment.  Over 70% of our guests would not be able to access a holiday or program without our service.


We aim to keep our costs very low, so that we are accessible to those on a low income, or with limited or no access to funding.


Saltbush is a lean operation with a small number of paid staff.  To continue to provide our service and maintain low fees, we rely on people supporting our service through volunteering or giving.
