Level up your EOFY shindig at one of The Island’s luxe function and event spaces

Ah, the end of the financial year. Like Christmas for accountants, this frantic time can bring out the best and worst in people as they push to close off accounts and hit the goals they have feverishly been working towards for the past 12 months. With many people working from home and enjoying more flexible arrangements, EOFY also offers a rare opportunity to gather your team of employees, catch up and celebrate the financial year that was. With just more than three weeks until the EOFY deadline, many bosses and PR employees are frantically searching for the perfect place to host a team get together beyond just 'drinks at the local'. Luckily for you, The Island Gold Coast in Surfers Paradise has a slew of suave function spaces that are the perfect setting for your EOFY shindig. 


After surviving the rigmarole of the past few years, you and your employees deserve a chance to let your hair down and say cheers with a cheeky cocktail or two. At The Island, you can escape the boredom of the boardroom at one of the six different function rooms and suites. Each light-filled space brings the outside in, fostering an airy and exceptionally well-appointed luxe function location. The Island is not your average cookie-cutter function location, either. Whether it’s the intimately lit, classy charm of Duke’s Parlour, the ocean and mountain view rooms on the Penthouse level, or the contemporary vibes of the brand new Glasshouse on the ground level, there is a space to suit all styles and group sizes. In addition to Duke’s Parlour, you can also choose from three other boutique bar spaces as the perfect location for your EOFY tipple, with Pool Deck, Island Rooftop and Goldie’s Bar and Bistro each serving up a unique twist on luxe function spaces.

When your team isn’t sipping on champers or sampling one of the talented bartender’s tantalising cocktail elixirs, they will no doubt want to chow down on some delicious bites. Thankfully, The Island takes the stress out of catering. The dedicated function room kitchens can follow set menus or produce fresh, seasonal and bespoke menus for breakfast and lunch, elevated conference fare, cocktail party nibbles, lavish banquets and live food stations. Each space also boasts state-of-the-art audio and visual equipment, perfect for the end-of-financial-year award ceremonies and presentations. Your guests are more than welcome to park onsite or catch public transport, with the G:Link light rail stopping just near the venue. Alternatively, if they want to go all out and treat themselves to a post-party staycation, The Island will happily host them with special guest rates in one of the 98 boutique hotel rooms and suites.

Beyond EOFY celebrations, The Island’s function spaces offer the flexibility to cater to all of your event needs and considerations. From birthdays and engagement parties to baby showers and weddings, The Island Gold Coast’s team is ready and waiting to help curate the unique vision of your next event from concept to completion.
