About our facility, history and why we exist.

Riverbend Youth Centre is a camp site administered by the Christian Brethren Churches of Circular Head and is situated 6km south of Smithton on Trowutta Road in a beautiful riverside setting. The centre consists of a large complex which holds our commercial size kitchen, indoor basketball and table games area, chapel, meeting room and dormitory style accommodation. Outside of our main building, we have further accommodation options with 4 flats, one of which has a kitchen attached to it. There is also a water-slide, flying fox, Jumping Pillow, Playground, oval and tennis court with a Flying Squirrel/Giant Swing in the bush area.

Riverbend is a Brethren run campsite dedicated to reaching youth for Christ. It has been running camps since 1970, staffed largely by volunteer leaders. It is administered by a Board and currently has a part time office manager. It is capable of accommodating 149 people and caters for all types of camps and conferences.
