Conferences

Day meetings from $55 per person.

The Powerhouse Function Centre is a great venue for business meetings, conferences and functions. The facility comprises  two adjoining integrated buildings constructed as part of the scheme to provide complete off grid power supply to the upper part of the farm.

The Powerhouse Function Centre offers a unique rustic conference retreat all close to the heart of the Hunter Valley and just 1 hour from Newcastle.

The upper building has a modern commercial kitchen, joining Karl’s Boardroom. Outside the Boardroom there is a wide covered verandah area for informal barbecue cooking.

Central steps lead down through an enclosed garden to the main Powerhouse building; this is a large venue, with high ceilings suitable for meetings for up to 100 guests.

All three spaces are connected by three sets of large opening alfresco doors, in moderate weather the whole area can be opened up to become one integrated space. The North side of the main Powerhouse building opens to a 45 sqm covered veranda looking out over the fields, the pond and the newly established lawns and native plantings.

Delegate accommodation is available in a mix of one, two and three bedroom cottages onsite. Accommodation must be booked with the conference package.

Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting

Experience the thrill and excitement of shooting clay pigeons as they fly through the air. This dynamic and interactive activity uses authentic 12 gauge shotguns that have been converted to fire laser beams. Clays with omni-directional tape are fired from the launcher – when the shooter scores a hit the beam is reflected back to the gun and registers on the electronic scoreboard. This event is sure to be a hit with your team as is perfect on the lawn outside the Powerhouse!

Wine Olympics

Rather than running, jumping and swimming your way to victory teams will tackle a very different series of events. Grape stomping, wine spitting, cork popping and an array of winery related activities make for a competitive, informative and hilarious event. Great in conjunction with our very popular Grape to Glass wine blending activity – as delegates will blend and design a label for your very own company wine that will be bottled and delivered to you post event.

Archery

A competitive archery session will awaken, refocus and keep your delegates on target during your next conference. This ancient form of weaponry is suitable for delegates of all fitness levels and ability. Your delegates will love the rare opportunity to feel the power of firing an arrow! Available at conference venues with an appropriate space – they are real arrows after all!
