Important Update

In response to NSW Health’s statewide stay at home orders, Royal Far West have made the important decision to temporarily close our Centre for Country Kids and Drummond House facilities in Manly, and suspend all face-to-face services until further notice.

The health and safety of our clients, their families, and our team remains our top priority. Customers impacted will be contacted by one of our team. We will provide further advice as the situation progresses.  In the meantime, please call us on 02 8966 8500 if you have any queries.

Think outside the box for your next event, function, workshop or meeting.
