Presentation Family Centre was established by the Presentation Sisters to provide respite accommodation for families and individuals in difficult circumstances due to financial distress, sickness, misfortune or disability.

Our aim to provide encouragement and support for guests in an atmosphere of recreation, respite and support, whilst providing a place of enrichment and relaxation.

Located in a rural setting on Western Port Bay, it is ideal for a peaceful holiday. The atmosphere is quiet and unhurried; the houses are comfortable and fuss-free. The Centre is a 5-minute walk to Balnarring Beach and a 3 minute drive to Balnarring township. The drive from Melbourne will take approximately 90 minutes and 30 minutes from Frankston. A bus service connects Balnarring with Frankston Railway Station.

The venue consists of 6-fully furnished houses and can accommodate up to 50 guests in total.
