3 destination venues for your next event

These stunning resort properties not only provide the perfect escape, they’re the ideal destination for corporate events too.

Oaks Hotels, Resorts and Suites boasts state-of-the-art conferencing and event facilities across Australia with over 10 locations to choose from.

Here are three of the group’s top conferencing resorts, each with their own characteristics and charm:

Oaks Cypress Lakes Resort

Oaks Cypress Lakes Resort is a conference organiser’s dream venue, with 11 conference spaces set in the idyllic natural setting of the New South Wales Hunter Valley.

The property has undergone a $4.5 million upgrade in recent years to offer guests a luxury experience, with villa accommodation, on-site dining and bar concepts and state-of-the-art conferencing facilities for up to 1000 delegates.

The resort’s dedicated Convention Centre features 364 square metres of pillar-less space, while the Event Centre offers 432 square metres of pillar-less event space all with an abundance of natural light.

The Lagoon Pool Marquee provides planners with a unique outdoor space to cater for up 1000 guests.

The resort works with local companies to design team-building events, motivational presentations and even corporate health programs. Activities can include wine Olympics, archery, ‘The Amazing Race’ inspired events, yoga, wellness seminars and mindfulness training

Let’s not forget the best part of the Hunter Valley: the wineries. The Hunter Valley’s cellar doors are right on the doorstep of Oaks Cypress Lakes Resort, offering groups behind-the-scenes winery tours, educational workshops and tastings.

Oaks Oasis Resort

Located on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, Oaks Oasis Resort is an expansive resort with dedicated facilities for meetings and events.

Living up to its name, the resort is an oasis, set amongst 10 acres of landscaped tropical gardens and lawns in Caloundra.

Or take your group off-site with one of the resort’s partner suppliers, offering everything from go-karting and cooking classes to stand up paddle boarding and jet skiing in Pumicestone Passage.
