1. A destination that has it all
The Margaret River Region is one of Australia’s most compact, yet strikingly diverse holiday destinations. It’s an enticing mosaic of pristine natural wonders, premium wineries, relaxed microbreweries, world-class restaurants, Australia's best beaches, towering forests, inspirational artisans, warm and friendly locals and has a laid-back charm all of its own.
At Pullman, delegates experience the magic of the Margaret River Region. A conference itinerary here goes above and beyond. Chill out with yoga class, take part in an indigenous fishing lesson at sunrise or learn a new skill with a surfing, wine-blending or cooking lesson. Whether the goal is leadership development or a rewarding executive getaway, the list of experiences on offer is endless.
2. No boring meeting rooms
At Pullman, conference organisers are encouraged to step outside of dull meeting rooms and into our beautiful backyard. An array of meeting spaces are dotted amongst the resort’s 35 acres of landscaped native gardens that gently meet the shoreline, including an alfresco ocean-view terrace, native garden amphitheater and the pure white sands of Bunker Bay.
Pullman is one of the Margaret River Region’s largest conference venues, offering over 700sqm of meeting space accommodating up to 400 guests.
3. Local flavour, indigenous flair
Pullman understands that the way to every delegate’s heart is through food. Pullman’s menus showcase the region’s outstanding local produce with indigenous flair through native ingredients foraged from the resort’s gardens by local Wardandi Elders.
The resort’s key ethos is 'fresh is best', striving to use only sustainable local produce for the resort’s seasonal menus. Produce is sourced from within 100km of the resort to reduce transport waste and support our environmental goals, with favourites including Manjimup truffle, silky Channyridge olive oil, Cape Naturaliste beef and line-caught fish.
The resort's ocean-view restaurant is a Finalist in the 2019 Gold Plate Awards for 'Fresh Produce' and 'Contemporary Dining'.
4. Meet / Play
Pullman was thrilled to launch our new Meet/Play concept for business events in February 2019, completely replacing our former MICE offering. Meet/Play is our reinvention of the traditional meeting experience; one that blurs the lines between work and play, performance and well-being.
