MEET LURE ABELL POINT MA­RINA

Business Events News - - News -

SET along­side azure wa­ters and of­fer­ing breath-tak­ing views of the spec­tac­u­lar Whit­sun­days Is­lands is Queens­land’s new­est venue, Lure Abell Point Ma­rina.

Launched ear­lier this year, the venue was part of a $12 mil­lion re­de­vel­op­ment of the ma­rina, with the space ini­tially out­lined for the Abell Point Yacht Club.

But Lure’s mar­ket­ing man­ager Josce­lyn O’Keefe said a gap in the mar­ket for con­fer­ences and wed­dings in the re­gion prompted a change in plans.

“We felt that the lo­ca­tion of the venue in the heart of a world-class ma­rina would be per­fect for these mar­kets, so the idea of Lure was born and the venue was fur­ther de­vel­oped with a state-of-the-art com­mer­cial kitchen, AV equip­ment and con­tem­po­rary nau­ti­cal in­flu­enced in­te­rior de­sign to ap­peal to these emerg­ing mar­kets,” she told Business Events News.

Ca­pa­ble of ac­com­mo­dat­ing full con­fer­ences, sem­i­nars, work­shops, meet­ings, cor­po­rate galas, net­work­ing func­tion and more, Lure has three spa­ces that can be used ei­ther separately or com­bined for larger cor­po­rate events.

In­cen­tives are also aplenty in the area, said O’Keefe, with Abell Point Ma­rina home to some 85 com­mer­cial tourism op­er­a­tors of­fer­ing au­then­tic Whit­sun­day prod­ucts and ex­pe­ri­ences.

An ar­ray of ac­tiv­i­ties are ac­ces­si­ble in the vicin­ity in­clud­ing sail­ing on a tall­ship, jet­ski­ing to a trop­i­cal is­land, snorkelling the Great Bar­rier Reef or send­ing the team out for a scenic he­li­cop­tor ride to iconic White­haven Beach.

Suit­able for small to medium sized func­tions, Lure Whit­sun­days can host up to 200 del­e­gates the­atre style.

A Whit­sun­days-in­spired menu is avail­able for those in­ter­ested in host­ing for­mal func­tions at Lure, with a range of healthy din­ners on of­fer which can be pre-se­lected and tai­lored by the event or­gan­iser to cre­ate a mem­o­rable spread.
