Age of Aquarius and Food Safaris
Located in Kingscliff on the Tweed Coast, Salt Village – comprising Peppers Balé Salt, Peppers Salt Resort & Spa, and Mantra on Salt Beach – has the largest conference facilities in Northern NSW catering for up to 300 delegates. As the preeminent venue in the region, two conferencing activities will feature at Salt in 2014: the Aquarius Festival and the Food Safari.
Inspired by the 1973 ‘Aquarius Festival’, a pivotal moment in the region’s culture promoting alternative thinking, the same philosophies can now be adopted for group gatherings. Options include sunrise yoga; organic cooking classes; Goddess of the Water challenge, drum sessions, and Rainbow Markets with arts and musicians.
The Food Safari headed by Peppers Salt Resort’s Season Restaurant executive chef takes delegates on a complete paddock-to-plate experience. Sourcing fresh produce from the region (which can also be adapted to a challenge or treasure hunt), groups will prepare delicious recipes to be enjoyed as a team.
Situated a short 30-minute drive from Gold Coast Airport or 90 minutes from Brisbane, the tranquil seaside location in Kingscliff, on northern NSW’s Tweed Coast, offers natural settings and purpose-built facilities suitable for a myriad of events including conferences, sporting events, product launches and incentives.
Superb conference and meetings space at Mantra on Salt Beach includes the 240 person capacity pillarless Plantation Room, offering vehicle access and the ability to be split into three small rooms for 80 people; The Pavilion, offering an abundance of natural light and views of the tropical pool for 100 delegates; and the 16-delegate boardroom.
The adjacent Peppers Salt Resort & Spa offers a 400 person pillarless Ballroom, again allowing for reconfiguration into three separate rooms of 98 person capacity. Heavy duty suspension points, rigging points and lighting patch points in the ceiling cater for the most complex or large scale product launches and events.
The Peppers Boardroom allows for 32 delegates and offers an abundance of natural light with full glass wall. The award-winning Season Restaurant is also another stunning venue space offering tailored menus that utilise the excellent local produce.
For VIP conference guests, Peppers Balé Salt offers an extra level of luxury accommodation with private hideaway apartments and penthouses, private Jacuzzi, exclusive outdoor lounge and direct beach access.
The Mantra Pool Deck and Peppers Lagoon poolside venues also offer stunning outdoor options for cocktails events or pre-dinner drinks to gala events – the perfect complement after a day of indoor conferencing.
