Hamilton Island has opened the multimillion dollar Beach Pavilion to meet increasing demand from the meetings and events market.

Following an investment of $3.9 million dollars, Hamilton Island has officially opened its latest meetings and events venue, the Beach Pavilion.

Formerly the Bougainvillea Marquee, the new Beach Pavilion was completed mid-December and opened by the Queensland Minister for Innovation and Tourism Industry Development and Hamilton Island CEO, Glenn Bourke.

Designed to fit in with the natural beauty of Hamilton Island, and with an exterior that shares similarities to the island’s world-class resort qualia, the interiors of the Beach Pavilion boast modern American Oak and white scalloped wall panels with a light terrazzo floor tile with a grey border tile.

When creating the Beach Pavilion, Hamilton Island worked to design a space which caters to a wide variety of event styles and set ups. Subsequently, the Beach Pavilion can be used for a banquet set up of up to 280 guests, a classroom of up to 340 guests, a theatre set up of up to 420 guests, a cocktail of up to 400 guests, and a space for trade shows of up to 32 2x3m booths.

Located a short walk from the Reef View Hotel, the space can be fully enclosed or alternatively opened with concertina doors to a lawn which flows directly onto the island’s famous Catseye Beach, which is ideal for pre-function entertainment.

The Beach Pavilion is expected to create opportunity for the business events segment and is the latest addition to Hamilton Island’s existing suite of events spaces.

In addition to the investment in the construction of the Beach Pavilion, AVPartners has spent an additional $240,000 on upgrades to the technical features of the space. This has included the installation of a 4.8m x 2.7m high definition 2.5mm pitch installed Led Screen and distributed audio system, 36 x retractable moving head colour changing pin spot/effect lights and a state-of-the-art fibre optic backbone cabling system.

The completion of the Beach Pavilion comes after a year of major upgrade works on Hamilton Island including the full refurbishment of the Reef View Hotel Foyer and the opening of the island’s latest luxury Great Barrier Reef experience, Heart Island. The investment in the island this year signifies the ongoing dedication Hamilton Island has to hosting truly world-class events.
