The retreat is housed in an historic hotel built in 1856, the 3rd oldest in Victoria, offering onsite accommodation for veterans and their partners as well as any homeless veterans that need a place to get back on their feet.
We were lucky enough to be a part of this special project, donating a variety of GH Commercial Loop program carpet tiles to an array of spaces within the retreat. As part of our Believe in Better ethos, we are actively seeking environmentally responsible ways to recycle our carpet tiles. Our GH Commercial Loop program gives carpet tiles a second life. Previously used carpet tiles are collected and re-purposed to ensure the carpet tiles don’t end up in landfill. We couldn’t be happier to give these carpet tiles a new home where the local community can benefit from this inspiring new space.
The extensive museum is now available for exhibition to travellers and groups who visit. Visit http://vvaavic.org.au/cockatoo-rise-retreat/ to learn more.
