Spring happenings at Guthrie-Smith

There has been a lot happening at Guthrie-Smith over the winter months in preparation for Spring, school visits, and open days. We’ve got new furniture for the dining area coming, along with an upgrade of the curtains in the bunkrooms.

The Centre becomes busy again around the end of September with an influx of school camps to take us through until early December.  The Education Centre is available to be booked through the holiday periods for family stays also.  Get in touch with our Curator for bookings.
