This September we were thrilled to host the first ever Dally M event in Queensland. The Dally M Awards celebrates the most outstanding performers from the NRL premiership season, with the Dally M Medal presented to the player deemed the competition’s Best & Fairest. A special mention goes to this year’s Dally M medal winner, Tom Trbojevic!

With only two weeks to plan this short lead event, our events team worked against the clock to create a night to remember.

We rolled out the red carpet, complete with drinks and canapés on arrival, and welcomed players and guests to our stunning riverside event spaces – Rivershed, Greenhouse and Bougainvillea House, where they were treated to dishes curated specifically for the event. With live coverage of the event by FOX Sports, precision timing across the three event spaces was crucial.

Nestled in the heart of our gardens, Green house offers an inner city oasis for guests. Reminiscent of a beautiful English glasshouse, featuring versatile indoor and outdoor seating, this lush event space is perfect for alfresco dining and cocktail celebrations, with a seated capacity of 30 people indoors and 120 people cocktail (indoor + terrace)*.



Inspired by summer holidays in the Mediterranean and the relaxed Queensland lifestyle, Bougainvillea House is the perfect back drop for any occasion. With a wrap-around veranda, and stunning views of the Brisbane river, Story Bridge and the city skyline, Bougainvillea is the largest of the houses.
