Following a scrumptious hotel breakfast, delegates walk the short distance to the Cairns Convention Centre for the first day of conferencing.

For this evening’s Gala Dinner, a sit-down function at the Cairns Esplanade Eastern Events Lawn is sure to impress.

To conclude the program, they are whisked away to a Farewell Dinner in Kuranda, where they can enjoy Army Duck tours, wildlife interactions and cultural performances from Aboriginal dancers.

After a busy day, the Gala Dinner, set on absolute beachfront and styled to perfection, is the perfect opportunity for delegates to let their hair down, kick up their heels and dance the night away.
Beach yoga is the first item on the agenda today, where delegates get to relax and take in the chilled out vibe of the region before resuming a busy program of corporate meetings.

Upon arrival at Cairns International Airport, delegates board their private connection to Lizard Island. Flying at low altitude over the Great Barrier Reef, they are treated to stunning views of the reef during the one-hour scenic flight.

After watching the sunrise from one of the resort’s exclusive suites and enjoying a casual seaside breakfast in the Salt Water Restaurant, delegates can choose between a range of small group activities such as inner or outer reef snorkeling, scuba diving at the world-famous Cod Hole, glass-bottom boat rides, big game fishing or simply unwinding on one of the island’s 24 powdery white beaches. Tonight’s dinner takes place at Anchor Bay Beach, providing delegates with a barefoot dining experience allowing them to chill out after the day’s activities.
This morning, delegates start the day with a guided nature walk through the island’s 1000 hectares of National Park, followed by a picnic hamper lunch on a secluded beach.

Today, delegates are taken on a full-day excursion to the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef.

Alternatively, a helmet dive or a scenic helicopter flight offer additional options for delegates who prefer to keep their hair dry. After a busy day discovering marine wonders, tonight’s dinner in a secret rainforest location provides a ‘wow’ factor delegates will not soon forget and is the perfect end to a day of exploring and adventuring.
