Convention Facilities

Holding a conference at the Desert Cave Hotel could lead to the most successful event you have ever held. The power and magic that Coober Pedy weaves over our guests adds something quite unique and special to conferences.
Delegates will meet in a spectacular natural environment where there are few external distractions. The opal fields of Coober Pedy themselves are inspirational and the clean fresh air is very conducive to creative and clear thinking. At the end of the day the peace of the Outback will relax active minds.

Our Convention Facilities have seating for up to 180 delegates and we can provide break-out rooms as well as an auditorium.

Two Hotels; the luxurious Desert Cave Hotel and the lively Opal Inn Hotel, with distinctly different restaurants, accommodate delegates according to their preference and budget.

Experiences, such as discovering the wonders of Coober Pedy, or sipping Champagne Cocktails at sunset as the Breakaways become mysteriously alive with light, simply cannot be discovered anywhere else in Australia and so your conference becomes unique.

We will assist you in experiencing the magic of this destination to create an event that your delegates will never forget.

The Convention Room seats:

  • 120 Banquet Style
  • 180 Theatre Style

The Convention room has a stage, dance floor and bar facilities.

We can provide a variety of equipment and services, private telephone lines, flower arrangements, musicians, secretarial/support services, reception services etc., and we are able to cater for various set-ups. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
