Our Donvale Campus is located on a stunning bushland setting located 25 kilometres from the Melbourne CBD, making for a convenient 20 minute drive from the city.
Nestled on a 22 acre bush landscape, the Donvale Campus provides a tranquil environment for future theologians, clergy and religious educators to engage in preparatory studies for ministry or faith development.
