New Dunesk

Just 2km south of the Riverina town of Ardlethan, on the eastern side of the Newell Highway sits the home of PIM, known fondly as New Dunesk: a place to Inspire, Equip and Send people out for Gospel work in remote and inland Australia. 

It’s a place where Jillaroos and Jackaroos can network, Nomads are trained and resourced, and Gap Year students gain a heart for the bush. It’s a place that sees churches bush camping together, and travellers being drawn in for rest.

Where is New Dunesk?

You will find New Dunesk at 6550 Newell Highway, Ardlethan NSW, just three minutes south of the township. It is easy to find and easy to get to. And crucially, it is ideally located to connect churches in the most populated parts of our nation with frontline mission activities in the least populated areas – places where there is very little gospel witness.

Visiting New Dunesk

Paul and Janae Denness and their family live on site and manage New Dunesk. They’d love for you to drop in and visit sometime.

To arrange a visit, call Paul on 0493 294 798.
