As Australia's seventh largest and second oldest city, Newcastle boasts modern and contemporary venues along with iconic and historically significant function spaces providing a unique diversity of choice for business events. Newcastle is proud to have a proven track record of hosting successful state, national and international conferences and events.
With a vast array of function venues, the largest of which seats 6500 delegates, Newcastle has no shortage of space. With over eighteen function venues located within the city centre, ten with on-site accommodation, the hardest decision will be which venue to choose.
Newcastle offers a range of quality hotels and accommodation, with more than 2000 rooms within an easy 30 minute reach of the CBD - almost 1000 of these are within a 5 minute walk of the CBD.
Not only does Newcastle host world-class facilities, events and attractions, it is also conveniently located and easy to access wherever you are travelling from.
