A new conference centre has opened today (28 November 2019) in Bawley Point on the NSW South Coast.
Part of Willinga Park, the Equine Education Centre offers a 300-person event space, restaurant and accommodation located three and a half hours from Sydney.
Terry Snow of Willinga Park said the centre boasts a unique location surrounded by both national parks and surf beaches.
“There is no other location which allows you to experience Australia this way,” he said.
“No other venue offers guests the chance to be just minutes from some of Australia’s most beautiful beaches and surrounded by vast bushland at the best, equine centre in the Southern Hemisphere. Guests will not be disappointed.”
Conferences and events
The Conference Hall, with a maximum cocktail capacity of 300 guests, features floor-to-ceiling windows with views to surrounding bushland, plus ample natural light. A private bar and restaurant is connected to the space.
Event planners benefit from flexible room layouts, state-of-the-art technology and fully-adaptable conferencing equipment with a variety of options for staging and lighting.
The venue is expected to attract small to medium conferences, corporate retreats, meetings, functions and expos.
Breakout areas include the Grand Prix building, ideal for meetings and formal dinners.
Willinga Park has also launched 18 freestanding accommodation pavilions, including two four-bedroom pavilions and 16 two-bedroom pavilions.
The rooms are self-contained and available exclusively for event guests.
Perfect for team retreats, the facility also features a communal BBQ area and fire pit, plus a range of team building activities can be arranged, such as horse trail rides, guided hikes, mountain biking and local tours.
