Welcome to Wedgetail Retreat
Wedgetail Retreat is a modern, purpose-built hospice run by the not-for-profit organisation, Tweed Palliative Support Inc (TPS). Wedgetail Retreat is based just outside of Murwillumbah in the beautiful NSW Far North Coast hinterland. A tranquil alternative to a busy hospital setting for those experiencing the unimaginable, a life-limiting illness. Wedgetail Retreat is there for children, adults and their family during those precious last days or weeks.
Wedgetail Retreat accepts Australians of any age, from all over the country. We offer this valuable service free from charge. The aim is to have 24 hour medical staff on hand to provide comfort and care for your loved ones.
Although this can be an incredibly challenging time, Wedgetail Retreat Hospice staff endeavour to uplift and to provide support wherever they can. This ‘special place’ has inspirational garden and valley views, wrap-around timber verandas and is a comfortable space to call ‘home’.
