Planners Guide

To assist in your destination research, we have produced a guide for professional conference organisers.

Our Greater Hamilton Regional Planners Guide contains details on most of our region's key venues for your events, plus information on transport and travel times, event services and catering options, team building activities and attractions.

The Greater Hamilton region is an ideal base for discovering the awe-inspiring views of the Grampians National Park, the waterfalls and dormant volcanoes of Australia’s largest volcanic province, or exploring the UNESCO Wolrd Heritage-listed Budj Bim to the south. Our team can assist you to put together itineraries including visits to any attraction on your route.

Your perfect fit might be picturesque Dunkeld with its award-winning food and wine experiences and mountain views; Hamilton, boasting venues, accommodation, eateries and attractions side by side; or one of our unique towns and villages.

From volcanoes to wineries, wellness activities to waterfalls, your guests will love heading to the Grampians for your event.

We work closely with key contacts throughout the Grampians region and can assist you with plans to visit key attractions in other parts of the Grampians too, including Halls Gap, Ararat and Horsham. See here for guidance on business events... The Grampians Way.

You can also speak to our partners at Business Events Victoria for guidance in finding the perfect fit for your needs in regional Victoria.
