About us....

We have created The Old Church School to reflect our great love and respect of the culture and customs of South West America with its Spanish, Mexican, and Native American influences while maintaining a strong link to the German Lutheran heritage of the local community.


Many of the decorations, including the tiles, have been collected during our travels. The hand-forged iron artefacts come from Mexican craftsmen. The curtains and blankets, designed by Native American artists, are imported from the Pendleton Woollen Mills in Oregon.


You will be greeted on arrival with a complimentary bottle of our exclusive Flete Station Block Shiraz made from grapes grown on our small block in Auburn and made by award-winning Watervale wine maker, Stephen John.
