Saltbush, Balnarring Beach was founded by the Presentation Sisters in 1989  to enrich the lives of people experiencing hardship.

As a Community Work of Kildare Ministries, in the Presentation tradition, Saltbush continues to provide a peaceful environment by the sea.  Saltbush welcomes people, especially families, for restorative holiday (rest, play, growth and connection), programs or retreat.
