New func­tion cen­tre to open in the Whit­sun­days

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY BUSINESS -

THIS Satur­day will be the gala open­ing of The Palm House, a mul­ti­pur­pose func­tion venue at BIG4 Ad­ven­ture Whit­sun­day Resort.

Up to 100 lo­cal tourism and event op­er­a­tors, me­dia and guests from a range of in­dus­tries are in­vited to en­joy a gala-style din­ner to cel­e­brate the launch of the venue.

Lo­cated on Shute Har­bour Road, Can­non­vale, at the front of BIG4 Ad­ven­ture Whit­sun­day Resort, lo­cals will also get a chance to in­spect the new fa­cil­ity as The Palm House will host an open week for public view­ing the fol­low­ing week.

From Tues­day, Septem­ber 2 to Fri­day, Septem­ber 5, lo­cals will be able to pop in ev­ery af­ter­noon between 2-5pm to view dif­fer­ent set-ups and to see how flex­i­ble the space is for birth­day par­ties, anniversaries, weddings, meet­ings or cor­po­rate events.

The venue’s ded­i­cated group and events team will be on hand dur­ing those hours to dis­cuss var­i­ous func­tion op­tions.

With over a year in the plan­ning and con­struc­tion stages, The Palm House is set in a large out­door area among botanic-like gar­dens and in­cludes a to­tally flex­i­ble build­ing which can be clev­erly trans­formed into smaller more in­ti­mate spa­ces for meet­ings and par­ties.

A large com­mer­cial kitchen al­lows for on-site cater­ing and there is also the serene Palm Pav­il­ion which can be utilised for wed­ding cer­e­monies and cock­tail func­tions.

Owner Greg McKin­non said he was ex­cited to have the venue com­pleted.

“Those peo­ple in­ter­ested in the his­tory of the area will know that where the build­ing is, has had many prior uses over the years in­clud­ing a horse pad­dock, veg­gie gar­den, swim­ming pool, soc­cer pitch and a chook pen. The whole project has seen us utilise lo­cal builders and sup­pli­ers, an in­te­rior de­signer and put in an enor­mous ef­fort to cre­ate a place we think is very spe­cial,” he said.
