Conference Facilities

The Island is an ideal venue for corporate functions, seminars, workshops, retreats and conferences.  It provides a unique, private and peaceful setting and has all the facilities required for such groups.

The Beach Homestead caters well for the smaller conferences because of its informal, personal and cosy atmosphere, provided by its warm, homely ambience and rustic charm. 

The Homestead caters for overnight guests of up to twenty, depending on preferred sleeping arrangements (see Accommodation and Facilities), but will cater for up to fifty day guests.

The comfortable furnishings in the huge living room are on castors and can easily be rearranged, or removed, to suit a variety of seating layouts and to create ‘break out’ areas. Participants can enjoy the warmth provided by both the crackling fire in the large, raised open fireplace and the heated slate floor. 

The large dining room off the living room can also be used in multiple ways, as can the bar alcove adjacent to the living room. 

The large outdoor deck area, shaded by gum trees and sun umbrellas, overlooks the river mouth and beach.  This area is easily accessible from all the conference rooms and, in good weather, can be used as an alternative dining area, additional break out area or for group relaxation sessions.

A large mobile whiteboard is available.

Guests can elect to self-cater and provide their own alcoholic refreshments.  Alternatively, staff are available, together with a variety of menus to suit both tastes and budgets, to cater for your event.  As the Retreat is a licensed establishment, options with regard to the provision, costing and serving of alcohol are also available.

The two Beach Cottages can be hired in conjunction with the homestead to provide additional accommodation.
