Welcome to Mamre

Mamre Association is a Brisbane based non-profit organisation supporting families which have children with a disability.

Mamre believes that people with a disability and their families can have rich, full and meaningful lives within their communities and is committed to working with families in partnership to inspire, embolden and empower towards a better future.

At the core of Mamre is the Mamre Community; an intentional community affirming and upholding the worth of every person in society, whilst continuously pushing the boundaries for social change. From Mamre's early beginnings, the fundamental values of inclusion, relationships and friendship have continued to remain paramount, the word 'Mamre' meaning 'Mountain of friendship' in Hebrew.


Mamre Community Retreat 2014

Mamre warmly invites the Mamre community to the 2014 Community Retreat, to be held at PCYC Bornhoffen in the beautiful Numinbah Valley in Springbrook National Park. The Numinbah Valley is easily accessible from Brisbane and yet is secluded and peaceful with an abundance of natural beauty.

Accommodation at the camp is in comfortable and clean dormitories and cabins, some with their own ensuites.  The campsite is fully accessible, including bathrooms.  Due to the accommodation arrangements, there will be a need for some families to share rooms.
