About Domus Australia

Guest House in Rome


In December 2008, a group of Australian Dioceses led by the Archdiocese of Sydney purchased the student house of the Marist Fathers located in Rome at Via Cernaia 14/B, to establish a new “casa per ferie”, the Domus Australia, as a new reference for visitors of the holy places.
