Got a big get together to plan? We’ve grouped together the best.

At The Palm House, we’ve grouped together a totally flexible event venue with the resort recently crowned the best in Australia, and the perfect Whitsundays location. Paradise found.

The Palm House is a purpose built event venue that cleverly reconfigures to entertain groups of up to 250 guests for birthday parties, family reunions, anniversary celebrations, Christmas parties, social club shindigs, schools and special interest group functions in the Whitsundays.

The most unique Airlie Beach event venue, The Palm House offers accommodation onsite at BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort from budget through to spare no expense luxury, so all your group can happily stay together – their way. And they can happily play together too, in our tropical wonderland of 26 acres of landscaped botanic-like gardens with an amazing array of activities and entertainment, including the biggest lagoon style pool in Airlie Beach.
