MEET LURE ABELL POINT MARINA
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.
