Accommodation 2018

(Please note 20% deposit required at registration to secure your spot)
Time for a tree change! We are super-excited to have secured a unique venue that suits the feel of Swing Escape to a tee! We will all be enjoying exclusive use of the Hunter Valley Retreat!


626 Sandy Creek Rd Quorrobolong (20 minutes from wine country) 

The Hunter Valley Retreat is nestled in 200 acres of bushland and combines nature’s beauty with lovely clean accommodation designed for comfort, style and convenience. 

A short stroll away from your room is a purpose built air-conditioned conference room; a spacious area that will be transformed into our awesome Swing Escape ballroom!


Securing your accommodation is easy. All bookings go through the danceconvenetion main registration page. When you purchase your pass, we require a 20% accomodation deposit to secure your place, and the balance is payable January 31st. Meals can be chosen at any time up to January 31st.

(By all means pay everything in full, get it out the way- one less thing to worry about later!). 


Accommodation Options

The on-site accommodation available ranges from cosy double rooms to apartments consisting of one or two bedrooms. For larger groups there are a limited number of three and six-bedroom villas available which can sleep up to fourteen people. The villas provide travelling groups the opportunity to stay and play together.

Each room option has something unique to offer, from relaxing private time, to a fun group weekend away. It’s your choice!


  • The accommodation is very good value! Three-star, comfy, clean & well maintained!
  • Retreat accommodation numbers are limited to 160. If you want to be onsite for the weekend we suggest you book ASAP. We had around 200 people last year so this event is very likely to be a sellout!
