Welcome to Ivory's Rock
Ivory's Rock Conventions and Events
From the moment you drive through the entrance at Ivory's Rock, it's obvious that this is a very special and unique place.
As you top the rise there is the venue's namesake – Ivory's Rock. Towering over the property, it is a significant landmark at the gateway to South East Queensland's Scenic Rim region.
Nestled in the valley below is the fantastic facility that is the Ivory's Rock Conventions and Events Complex. Driving further into the site, past flowering Bauhinia, the citrus grove and towering native gum trees the first vista you see is the delightful ornamental lake. It all has the feel of well-kept parklands. On its edge rests the Pavilion, an outdoor area with a large domed roof, circled by 29 shops, pathways and shade sails. Suitable for food and beverage operations, concessions and a range of options, the shops provide a plaza that can service 3000 – 5000 guests within the Pavilion area.
A short walk from the Pavilion and you will arrive at the Conference Centre, a purpose built structure suitable for trainings, Annual General Meetings and product launches. Set below the ever present Ivory's Rock, this venue will fulfil all your technical requirements, holding up to 360 people in theatre-style. It is also suitable for smaller, more intimate presentations – musicians, speakers, awards nights and receptions. Far from the hustle and bustle of big cities there is only birdsong to distract attendees – no ambient noise, no traffic, no disturbances.
About half a kilometre up the hill in an easterly direction lies the jewel in the crown of the facility – a 5000 seat, natural, open air Amphitheatre. Constructed from sandstone and fully covered with shade sails, this facility feature offers the perfect outdoor performance venue. A fully equipped soundstage provides the best possible venue for your productions – music, theatre, opera and live speakers.
This is an exciting and visually stunning venue. Serviced with modern bathrooms and catering, it is a wonderful venue in a superb natural setting.
Ivory's Rock Conventions and Events have successfully hosted a significant number of events, both large scale as well as smaller corporate and community events.
In 2015 and 2016 the venue hosted the Peace Event with Prem Rawat as the Keynote Speaker. In 2016 4,500 guests attended the event, with 2000 staying onsite. Both years the event was sponsored and managed by the Ivory's Rock Foundation. Read article …
Several Community Events were held during 2016, focussing on the environment and with support from Ipswich City Council and Earth Frequency. World Wildlife Day in March was a family event; the highlight for children was coming into contact with baby koalas, snakes and lizards. The Council introduced iconic species in this region and informative presentations were made by a number of leading organisations in wildlife preservation. Hosting World Environment Day in May the focus was on engaging youth as well as families. A grant from Ipswich City Council ensured a great line up of music and workshops. Local organisations provided food, businesses showcased environmental products and entertainment was provided for the children.
The Spartan Australia Group have now staged 5 events at the Ivory's Rock venue. These events attract large fields of competitors wishing to test their physical strength and endurance over the natural terrain and obstacles provided by Spartan onsite. The actual events have attracted over 5000 people to most events.
Earth Frequency, a popular Music and Cultural event for younger people, has now been held three times at Ivory's Rock from 2014 to 2016, with another coming up in February 2017. Earth Frequency attracts people from all over Australia. Many attendees will again be camping on site for the duration of the event.
