Over the years since 1992, a number of international conventions have been held at Ivory's Rock on the topic of personal peace with Prem Rawat as the keynote speaker. Prem Rawat is recognised as an international ambassador for peace.

These events draw audiences worldwide and regularly attract between 3000 and 5000 people. Many choose to stay 'on-site' camping in tents with on-site catering.

A Peace Event Celebration of fifty years of Prem Rawat’s relentless effort to bring the experience of peace to people all over the world was held in 2016 at the facility between the 19th and 23rd of September. People travelled from Europe, the United States, South America, India, Nepal, Malaysia, Taiwan, China, Japan, New Zealand and many other places to hear Prem Rawat speak and celebrate. As well people travelled from all over Australia to the event. Approximately 4,500 people attended with nearly 2,500 people staying on-site in tented accommodation. The rest stayed in hotels, b&bs, motels and other accommodations in Ipswich and surrounding areas.

Full catering was provided with a wide range of food and beverages, coffee carts, ice cream vans and a bar. The pavilion area was festooned with international flags, donated by the Ipswich City Council, to represent the many nations visiting Ivory’s Rock for this event. Shops sold clothing, music, books, a general store, bakery items and organic produce from Peak Organics (the organic farm on the property) were well frequented. The onsite hairdresser and beauty salon was also a great favourite with many of the guests.

A civic reception prior to the Peace Event was held at the conference hall attended by the Ipswich Mayor and Scenic Rim Regional Council Mayor along with Councilors, University of Queensland scholars, members of Rotary and other dignatories. The Ipswich Mayor, Prem Rawat, Shaughn Bourke (University of Queensland Peace Fellows Program coordinator) and Dr. Joseph Hungoh (former UQ Peace Fellows Program graduate) spoke on the theme “Perspectives on Peace”. The Yuggera Dance Troupe opened the reception with welcome to country and speeches were followed by a raising of the peace flag to honour the Universal International Day of Peace and Mayors for Peace.
