Five of the best quirky venues in Australia

It’s no surprise that Australia offers some of the world’s best venues for business events; however, stepping away from the more iconic venues, the country is also home to a selection of quirky places to hold your next business event.

Our original venues help meet an increasing demand for more innovative ways to host a corporate event. From sleeping underground in Australia’s outback to a restored 1930’s amusement park set on the stunning Sydney harbour, you’re sure to create a memorable event.
