The Diocese is currently looking to purchase Hawes’ Geraldton Hermitage from the State Government, who acquired it through a land swap arrangement in the 1980’s. This will allow this very unique and significant piece of Hawes’ heritage to be re-united with the majority of the built heritage of Hawes which is in the possession of the Diocese of Geraldton. Once in the ownership of the Diocese it is planned to make The Hermitage available as a B & B, for tours, and
small meetings or gatherings. The cost to purchase The Hermitage from the Government will be in the vicinity of $100,000.
Your large or small donation would be most welcome.
