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-eight, depending on preferred sleeping arrangements, but will cater for up to fifty day guests.
The comfortable furnishings in the huge living room can be 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 rooms and, in good weather, can be used as an alternative dining area, additional break out area or for group relaxation sessions.
Guests may self-cater or wish to have a particular caterer provide for them during their stay, or for their special function.
The two Beach Cottages can be hired in conjunction with the homestead to provide additional accommodation.
