Queensland is home to so many beautiful venues and event locations, at The Conference Shop we take all the research out of it and show you venues that suit your needs that we personally love and endorse! Below is part two of QLD venues we loved and can suit conferences of all types! For part one, check out this blog post.


Peppers Blue

Located on the water’s edge of Magnetic Island marina, this intimate hotel is ideal for incentive and small groups. In a convenient location, Peppers Blue is adjacent to the ferry terminal and is in walking distance to shops and restaurants. With two pools and an onsite spa, this venue is the perfect location for those looking for somewhere with a tropical vibe.



Sitting in the heart of Townsville on Palmer Street, this hotel provides a full range of facilities incorporating the adjacent Southbank Convention Centre. Offering a selection of guest accommodation, these budget rooms don’t skimp on comfort.  They are well appointed and recently refurbished.  The Convention Centre gives off laid-back Queensland charm, but is all efficiency when it comes to your event. Rydges Townsville is a flexible space that can cater for board meetings to large functions in the 500 pax Grand Ballroom.



A beautiful resort style hotel that is located close to the city and only 2km from the airport! This venue is set lakeside amidst 11 acres of lush tropical gardens. The hotel offers 162 great accommodation rooms and has 13 meeting spaces with a maximum capacity of 500 guests. Making it an ideal location for events of all sizes.


The Banquet Centre

This stunning venue dates from 1889 and exudes historic charm with exposed brick and moody opulence. The space can cater for cocktail parties of up to 400 delegates, sit down banquets for up to 180 delegates and conferencing for 200 delegates. It is truly an intimate blank canvas with endless possibilities!
