What is The Nest?

While the kids are enjoying their time at Hawk, you’re invited to relax & enjoy some time-out at the complimentary Nest cafe.

The Nest is all about good food, great coffee, & practical seminars about relevant topics for everyone in our community. This year we have a fantastic line up of guest speakers every day.

There will be a mini market on Wednesday and the chance to hear from someone involved in empowering women in the third world to be self-sufficient. Perhaps you’d like to come along to our special event seminar on building your family as a team, presented by a specialist in the field. Maybe you are just looking forward to the opportunity to relax with friends and great coffee while the kids are having a fantastic time at HAWK. There’s something for everyone at the Nest – there’s even a play area for your little ones!
