Kirkton Park Hunter Valley, NSW
Surrounded by a heritage rose garden, vineyards, century-old gum trees and views of the valley beyond, you will have picturesque vistas from every angle. Award-winning interior designer Greg Natale has brought his signature style to the property. Whilst remaining true to its Australian colonial heritage, the light-filled estate has a sense of luxury and occasion.
With impressive on-site, indoor and outdoor spaces to choose from, it’s the ultimate wine country destination, where conference planners can expect personalised and professional service complemented by tailored food and beverage options, says director of sales and marketing of the Kirkton Park Hunter Valley, Caleb Morris. He adds there’s also plenty of beautiful surrounds, fresh air and options to adapt your itineraries to suit complex client needs or keep it efficient and pleasing.
The property offers 70 suites, king and twin share rooms able to accommodate up to 116 guests.
“Buy-outs can cater for 70-110 guests,” says Caleb. “These allow for the best use of the property because we can showcase anything the client's budget allows. We have had beverage companies stage multiple events in a variety of locations across the hotel and the grounds. Evening outdoor dinner events and High Tea inspired breaks are our specialty.”
Additionally, the onsite Manor House is also available for exclusive bookings with it’s
19 rooms including a private garden, and board room to suit 5-15 people.
Event spaces here have been recently refurbished, and include 5 conference rooms and 4 breakout rooms each with plenty of natural light. From welcome dinners of 150 guests to board meetings or team training sessions, the right facilities to make your event a success are here. There’s also plenty of outdoor space for breakout areas and teambuilding activities including a gorgeous rose garden, an outdoor cinema area and fire pits for evening bonfires and making s’mores!
And in a destination dominated by good food and arguably some of Australia’s best wineries, the food and beverage offerings here are top-notch. There’s an on-site fine dining restaurant and bar, a woodfire pizzeria for more casual meals and even a kitchen produce garden so delegates can enjoy the freshest ingredients from garden to plate.
As sustainability is also important to many organisations, Caleb says the property has also taken initiatives to improve the venue's sustainability practices. “We have our very own stables where our piglets and chickens help us with reducing our waste footprint,” he says. “We are working towards offering branded KeepCups for our conferences to ensure further reduction in waste resulting from Barista coffee breaks.”
Planners can also organise off site adventures with local winery tours or local tourism providers through key partnerships. The property, managed by InterContinental Hotels Group, also has a partnership with nearby Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley for use of the day spa and golf course.
“Our central Hunter Valley location provides excellent access to surrounding wineries and attractions, perfect for team building activities, incentives or delegate partner programs,” he adds. “Also, our outdoor cinema and purpose-built bonfire area also provide great opportunities to add a unique experience to your event.”
