Aldinga Beach Retreat
Aldinga Beach Retreat is a one hour south from Adelaide airport and coordinated by MissionsInterlink, opened in November 2016, funded by Mr Basil Sellers AM who visited the Laguna Quays Respite in 2014-15.

Laguna Quays Respite - Whitsundays
The respite cottage is situated a fifteen minute drive south of Proserpine airport and a stone's throw from Midge Point. Opened in 2011, Well-Being Australia developed this mission respite ministry after my wife Delma and I had ministered respite to Australian Institute of Sport elite athlete "respite" in both Moruya (Basil Sellers Moruya) and Tweed Heads (Basil Sellers Tweed) since 1992.
The Laguna Quays Respite facility was a dream of ours to serve our mission community with a no-cost rest and recuperation experience and the Whitsundays provides many such opportunities for relaxation. Mission people can drive or fly into Proserpine airport inexpensively.
There is no charge for the Laguna Quays Respite cottage yet visitors are welcome to leave a gifting to help with its functioning costs.
Over these ten years - SIM, CMS, WEC, OMS, SU, TEAR, BCS, UCA, OMF, YM, Wycliffe, BCA, YWAM, MAF, AFES, CM, ASEF, Japan Missions, International Inter-Serve, NZ Missions, Global Interaction, independent missions, school chaplains and Ministers and pastors from many denominations.
