Three hotels to inspire your next Cairns event

Recently Carla and Susan from The Conference Shop were invited to the beautiful Cairns in Tropical North Queensland, to join the Crystalbrook Collection famil.

Known for its focus on luxury sustainability, Crystalbrook Collection offers not one but three properties to choose from in Cairns, each with its own distinct personality and all offering something unique to business events.


Crystalbrook Riley

Crystalbrook’s five-star resort in Cairns, Riley has really upped the ante when it comes to available accommodation in the area.  After a 2016 full hard refurbishment of an existing hotel plus a new build tower, this venue offers luxury rooms with ocean and city views.

The function space is contemporary and invigorating in design and décor.  There is a 400 pax capacity main room which can be divided into 3 breakout rooms all lined with an outdoor private terrace for breaks and catering.  Plus there are 3 smaller meeting rooms just across the pool to support any group agenda.  Boosting a bustling Asian-inspired restaurant called Paper Crane, your guests can enjoy breakfast and lunch by the pool in the open air.  For evening fare there is Rocco, a funky roof-top Mediterranean restaurant and bar, taking in sweeping views of Cairns and the Ocean – perfect for a sunset cocktail.  As with all the Crystalbrook hotels, sustainability is a priority they champion throughout their services.


Crystalbrook Bailey

With an emphasis on art and an appreciation of the finer things in life, Bailey delivers a unique experience to your guests.  The accommodation rooms are warm and welcoming with soft timbers and bursts of colour.  All the meeting rooms offer natural light and the Aria rooms feature distant mountain and water views.  Groups of up to 200 will enjoy the invigorating atmosphere and comfortable furnishings.

There are also two restaurants on-site.  Pachamama is a Latin themed rooftop cocktail bar showcasing Mexican food and drinks while CC’s Bar and Grill is THE place to go for a steak (or some awesome Barra!).  Local ingredients and the finest beef is used coming directly from Crystalbrook Station 3 hours from Cairns.


Crystalbrook Flynn

In the Crystalbrook family, Flynn is the outgoing and fun little sibling.  Full of energy and light all 311 rooms breathe playful colours and modern design.  The conference space can host up to 130 people and it directly leads onto the foyer area for access to Flynn’s Italian and Whiskey and Wine for group catering options.  There is also the Boardwalk Social just down a quick flight of stairs for a more informal service.  Just pass the glass pool and you’re there.  Grab a seat in the light-filled space and enjoy the sea breeze.
