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.

....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 also like to mention all the staff were all bright, friendly and cooperative whilst I was in your venue. The food was also a hit with the participants, of course, ourselves as well...

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.

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!

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 superstar over the two days.
