At the Tailrace Centre we do things differently

We begin differently by being situated just 10 minutes from the Launceston CBD.

  • Free Parking
  • No hustle and bustle of the work place and the inner city distractions.
  • Your guests will be able to relax and focus.

We know food is important.

  • Healthy choices so that guests stay focused and attentive.
  • Food that is yummy and feels like a treat.

We know its about customisation.

  • Whether it is a boardroom meeting, a lunch time meeting, an all day conference, the launch of a new product, a pre event function, a private cocktail party or a sit-down dinner we try to tailor each element to design a unique event specific to you.
  • When you choose Tailrace Centre we will strive to make sure that your event is the very best, as well as making the event individual to you.

Client Feedback:

“I would just like to thank all staff from the Tailrace Centre for their incredible customer service at the Tasmanian Catholic Education Conference.  My colleague tells me there was not a thing that was a hassle and all staff were friendly and willing to assist.  The lead up was so easy and we are forever grateful as a venue that makings things as easy as you do is certainly a godsend when you get to the thick end of a Conference!  Thank You!”

Emily Marriott /Conference Coordinator.  Leishman Associates

“I was hoping to have a chat with you regarding some positive feedback I had for the staff and centre last week whilst training in your venue.  This was my first time facilitating in your wonderful venue and couldn’t have been more pleased with the staff, resources and food.  I would especially like to mention the great support David had given myself and my colleague over the two days I was there with two small groups of teachers.  Both days David diligently supported and guided us through the IT, food and of course was available at my every need and question.  He was a super star over the two days.  I would also like to mention all the staff were all bright, friendly and co operative whilst I was in your venue.  The food was also a hit with the participants of course ourselves as well.”  Adele Daly,  Education.

“I would like to thank the team at the Tailrace for your professionalism with hosting our two recent events.  The catering was delicious over the two days with positive comments received from participants and presenters.  Please pass on a special thank you to David for all his assistance.”  Tamara Clark   Education Department.

“We really did enjoy the venue.  It was a great space and the catering was marvellous and a big thank you to David who was really helpful on helping us to set up and throughout the day.  Thank you to Sophie for helping with the booking and arrangements.  We will certainly keep your venue in mind for future events.  It was recommended to me for this event by another colleague.”  Patty Hartmann, Settlement and Multicultural Affairs team, Tasmanian State Office Department of Social Services.
