With thanks to Cessnock City Council, you can apply for event funding of up to $25,000 to put towards your event costs. You can use this for anything from transport into region, to an offsite dinner or memorable experiences to bring your attendees together.
Take a look at the Hunter Valley Meeting Planner Guide HERE
The Hunter Valley is well known for being one of Australia’s premier wine regions, but there’s so much more on offer for events. Think wide-open spaces and fresh country air to inspire creativity and imagination, locally produced food to connect your delegates, world class wine and stellar experiences to inject fun and create a truly unique conference, incentive program, or gala event.
Let your delegates rest easy with many unique accommodation options. Take informal breakout sessions to a new level and connect next to 100-year-old vines or within a kitchen garden. Enjoy pre-dinner drinks with a side of stunning views and a few kangaroos, then get the celebrations started within an operating barrel shed. Everyone will leave feeling inspired, recognised and rewarded with full bellies, great memories and wanting to return to the Hunter Valley again soon.
