Registration and Costs

There are two types of registration for this year's Gathering in Launceston: a full registration including all meals, accommodation, tours as part of the Gathering programme, and transport.  A programme only registration option includes all meals, transport and tours as part of the Gathering programme.  Choosing this option means that you choose and arrange your own accommodation.

Option 1

Full Registration

Accommodation will be at the Emmanuel Centre, the Gathering venue.  It has a range of rooms, from single rooms to twin rooms and some double rooms.  Bathroom facilities are shared.  Meals are taken in a the venue's dining room a short walk from the main venue.  For people unable to be accommodated here, homestay and motel apartment accommodation will be arranged.  For those in homestay and motel apartments, transport will be provided to the Emmanuel Centre in time for breakfast each day and after the evening's activities.  Please ensure that you let us know as early as possible if you have any special requirements. There is a floor plan of the Emmanuel Centre available elsewhere on this website.

For people wishing to arrive a day or so early, please advise us early so we can arrange this with the accommodation providers.  We may also be able to arrange for participants to stay an extra night after the Gathering finishes.  There will be an extra cost for doing this, and no meals will be provided after the close of the Gathering.  However there are restaurants and food outlets close by.

Option 2


Registration includes, all meals at the Emmanuel Centre, tours and transport as part of the Gathering programme. If you wish to attend only for part of the period of the Gathering, please contact us to discuss this further.


We do want to make it possible for any Wellspring Member or Friend to attend our Gathering without being prevented from doing so because of cost.  Please speak to one of us, or your state group contact person to discuss how we can help you with the costs of attending the Gathering.

Registration Brochure

The registration brochure will be mailed to all Wellspring Members and Friends in the early part of April.  We hope that the information provided here will enable you to consider whether you can attend and begin to make your travel plans.  If you have not received a copy of the registration brochure in the mail, please let us know.

Motel Apartments and Homestay

Motel apartment accommodation is being arranged at Adina Place Motel Apartments with two people per apartment.  Homestay will be in two homes within easy reach of our venue for a total of seven people, three in one home and four in the other.  For people accommodated outside Emmanuel and who have chosen the full programme option, transport will be provided each day from the accommodation to the Emmanuel Centre.
