The Powerhouse Function Centre offers a unique rustic conference retreat all close to the heart of the Hunter Valley and just 1 hour from Newcastle. 

The upper building has a caterer's kitchen facility, joining Karl's Boardroom. Outside the Boardroom there is a wide covered varandah area for informal barbeque cooking. 

Central steps lead down through an enclosed garden to the main Powerhouse building; this is a large venue, with high ceilings suitable for meetings for up to 100 guests. 

All three spaces are connected by three sets of large opening alfresco doors, in moderate weather the whole area can be opened up to become one integrated space. The North side of the main Powerhouse building opens to a 45 sqm covered veranda looking out over the fields, the pond and the newly established lawns and native plantings. 

Delegate accommodation is available in a mix of one, two and three bedrooom cottages onsite. Accommodation must be booked with the conference package.
