The Glenorchy School

Built in 1911, The Glenorchy Primary School had fallen into a state of neglect when it was gifted to Paradise Trust.

In 2014, with the help of Central Lakes Funding, it was carefully cut up into 18 pieces, relocated 20km up the road and reassembled at its new home in Paradise.

Now returned to its former glory, the Glenorchy School is used for all sorts of occasions but is most popular with hosting groups for the ultimate dining experience.

When not in use, the Glenorchy School is open to the public.  

The Glenorchy School is equipped with:

  • Large dinning table that can comfortably seat up to 16 people
  • Cozy couches/lounge chairs
  • Toasty fireplace  
  • Piano

The kitchenette is equipped with:

  • Sink with running water
  • Hot water (zip)
  • Plates, bowls, glasses, cutlery etc, for up to 20 people
  • Food warmer


The cost to use the Glenorchy School is a $100 flat fee (plus $200 bond if using the kitchenette).

This money goes directly towards the upkeep of this historic community building.

School Groups

Paradise encourages organised recreational school activities and this is the only time that we allow camping on the property.

Price: $7 per child and $45 per adult and must include at least one cabin booking.

The use of the Glenorchy School is FREE to school groups who wish to use it as a gathering point for meals or group activities.
