As they say, all work and no play, makes for a dull conference. So to overcome this, the conference secretary has organized a conference dinner to be held on the first night of the event. This dinner will give delegates the opportunity to further network while letting your hair down in an informal setting. The conference dinner will be a private charter dinner cruise with the Spirit of Cairns at a cost of $150 per person including a three course meal. The conference dinner is additional to the conference fees and bookings must be made prior to the event.
A Cairns Dinner Cruise is the perfect way, to end a perfect day in paradise.
Boarding our sailing catamaran at the Marlin Marina, you’ll enjoy an
evening of calm water cruising on Trinity Inlet, taking in the sights and
sounds of this tropical port city and its surrounding mangroves, as they
transition from day to night. Every journey begins with bubbles, as all
good dinner cruises should. With your glasses charged, stroll the
interior or exterior decks and admire the view as the sky transforms
from blue to red to orange and finally a silky black, filled with thousands of sparkling stars. Your journey takes you deep into the heart of Trinity Inlet and across the waterfront precinct of Cairns, from the Cruise Liner Terminal to the Esplanade. The water is calm, the weather mild and the night is yours to enjoy, with entertainment and a delicious 3 Course Buffet Dinner featuring some of the region’s best produce, including seafood. The luxurious Spirit of Cairns sailing catamaran is fully licensed, selling a range of beverages, including tropical cocktails. This is the ultimate in waterside dining.
When Do We Go
