Learning & Development Essentials

After many years working with large organisations, running ongoing Corporate Learning Programs, we are well aware of the key requirements to support successful learning and development outcomes.

Key Learning Requirements

  • A peaceful, distraction free environment – no casinos, night clubs as distractions
  • Flexible programming – a venue prepared to work to the event timetable
  • Meeting support – a dedicated venue coordinator to work with
  • Professional conference facilities – designed to stimulate successful learning outcomes

What Does CountryPlace Offer?

A quiet, peaceful and distraction free location. High in the hills of the Dandenong Ranges, CountryPlace provides a quiet and peaceful location in the Olinda State Forest overlooking Silvan Dam and right down the Yarra Valley. There are no night clubs or casinos to distract from learning. What’s more, the location is only 40 minutes from Melbourne CBD.

Budget Friendly View

Flexible Timetable

Twenty five years of experience in the conference and business events sector has allowed CountryPlace to tailor its service to meet your specific needs. We understand that our flexibility and responsiveness to your requests will contribute to the successful outcome of your event.

Clients really value this approach. Your event . . . your way.

So, when you ask“What time is dinner?”

We say “What time would you like it?” CountryPlace is not run like a big city hotel where the client fits into the venue schedule. We work to your schedule. Even when you change things on the run CountryPlace will happily respond to your needs.

And when you say “It’s a nice day, we would like to move our workshop outside in the fresh air and gardens.”

We say, “No trouble. There are many pleasant CountryPlace garden opportunities for your group to enjoy.”

Stunning Gardens

Learning & Support

CountryPlace provides a coordinator to work with you, dedicated to your event throughout.

Facilities designed and equipped for learning

CountryPlace was the first Australian venue to be recognised for membership of IACC by meeting the standards of the International Association of Conference Centres.

Loads of natural light & wonderful views

Conference rooms at CountryPlace have large windows providing loads of natural light and wonderful views of the gardens. All rooms provide adjustable ergonomic chairs for all day comfort. Delegates remain fresh and focussed.

There is an abundance of breakout rooms and plenty of opportunities for meeting outside in the gardens.
