There are five spaces available to suit all your conference, meeting, breakout and exhibition needs. Each room can be personalised to your workshop’s specification and delegate needs.

Our boardroom is a small office space suitable for small groups, accommodating up to eight delegates. This is a private and intimate space that is air-conditioned and overlooks our peaceful outdoor area.

The Rogers room is ideal for your next meeting, conference or training workshop. The room can accommodate boardroom, theatre, u-shape and workshop room formats. With black block-out curtaining, the room provides a private space to conduct business and includes a data projector, screen, whiteboard and flipchart.

The Peter Rorke auditorium is a versatile space that can easily be adapted to your exhibition, workshop or performance. Air-conditioned year round, the space has no columns or pillars and can be customised to suit your needs. The space also includes a full-sized stage and dressing rooms or alternatively use our portable staging to create your event.

Our chef can cater to any function including meetings, conferences, dinners, networking events, cocktail parties, luncheons or breakfasts. If you have a menu or budget in mind, please contact the centre so we can personalise a menu to suit your requirements.

Our professional in-house chef can cater to your every whim from freshly baked muffins on arrival to a feast spanning morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. Why not wind down afterwards with canapés and drinks or even a dinner? All of this with a variety of menu options to keep things fresh and engaging.

Our daytime packages start from as little as $24.90 per person including freshly brewed tea and coffee on arrival, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.

We are happy to cater for anyone with special dietary needs, such as vegetarians, vegans, diabetics and food intolerances, provided we are advised in advance.

We generally serve our meals in the rear bar area where your delegates will be able to mingle and make use of our outdoor eating area. Our outdoor garden area also can be used for team building activities such as volleyball.
