Melbourne Function and Event Testimonials

“ Deciding on the Treacy Centre to host the Peer Conference was a great choice that genuinely contributed to the event’s success. Treacy Centre staff were supportive from the outset, responding promptly to all queries during planning and on the day.

The conference, presented by the Centre of Excellence in Peer Support (mental health), was host to over 130 delegates – many of whom provided overwhelmingly positive feedback about the Treacy Centre. Friendly staff, excellent facilities, delicious catering; all in a beautiful setting close to public transport and the CBD. I would use the Treacy Centre for future events without hesitation, and recommend to others looking for an exceptional venue.

“ I have had involvement with the Treacy Centre for over 8 years and current, in various roles with the APS College of Counselling Psychologist (VIC) (including past Chair).

I have always found both Madeleine & Peter and other staff supportive, accommodating, and always meet our needs sufficiently. We utilise the venue primarily for professional development training for psychologists, and for our Annual General Meeting. Catering is very good and always adequate, technical services readily available, and parking in the surrounding area is best.

I strongly recommend the Treacy Centre as a venue of choice.

“ I have found all the staff at the Treacy Centre friendly, helpful and efficient. It is an outstanding venue for training, with beautiful rooms and excellent audio visual facitities.

The catering is excellent. The Treacy Centre’s central location and ease of access by public transport and by car makes it a perfect choice for events where those attending are coming from far and wide.

“ I would like to take this opportunity to say a big Thank You to the Treacy Centre team. The June course was quite large and as you did not have a Wedding booked, very kindly accommodated us with the Treacy Room. Our Facilitators Stephanie and Damian Murphy very much appreciated having the extra space for this large group and complemented the staff on their service that day. Can you please pass this Thanks on to Peter, Madeleine and your staff for me.

Thanks again,

“ Hi Peter and Madeleine,

A word of thanks from Edmund Rice Camps Vic Board for your generous hospitality with the use of the Edmund Rice Room for last evening’s AGM, which was well attended and very successful.

With thanks and best wishes,

“ Over the past 12 months, the Foundation for Young Australians (FYA) has used the Treacy Centre on a number of occasions and each time have found the team at Treacy to be:

  • accommodating to all requests (even the slightly unrealistic ones!)
  • prompt when it comes to getting back to us on queries, and
  • attentive to our needs when we are onsite.

The venue itself is one of the key reasons we have chosen Treacy Centre as our preferred venue for all our staff offsite activities. The venue has great facilities; the grounds are beautiful; it is very close to Melbourne CBD; is accessible via public transport; is within our price range and is the food is great.

“ Over the last few months we have organized several workshops at the Treacy Centre and dealing with both Madeleine and Peter has been an absolute pleasure. The utmost professionalism and friendliness has been displayed by all staff from the very early preparations all the way through to the completion of the workshops. In addition to a wonderful range of catering options and lovely surrounds I am more than happy to recommend this venue to anyone who may be planning a workshop, conference or development day.

“ Learning Difficulties Australia (LDA) ‘discovered’ the Treacy Conference Centre about two years ago, and it is now the preferred venue for our Workshops and other events. It is a delight to be able to have our events in such a charming old world setting, in the beautiful old house and gardens. The variety of rooms available make the Centre very flexible for both small and large events, the catering and service is excellent, the pricing is very reasonable for the quality of service offered, and we find the staff very obliging and easy to work with. The venue has all the technical equipment we require for our events, and the staff are always very helpful in sorting out any technical issues that we may have. The location is also ideal for our purposes, being easily accessible from all parts of Melbourne and an easy run in from the airport, close to public transport, and having adequate long term parking close by. We always have very positive feedback about the venue from participants at our events, and commend Madeleine and Peter for the excellent facilities and service that they provide.

“ In May 2013 we spent two days at the Treacy Centre hosting the International Symposium on Motivational Interviewing. We had approximately 160 people through the doors over those two days.

Leading up to the event we found the Treacy Centre easy to deal with. All our requests were met willingly and obligingly. On arrival and throughout our time there Madeleine and Peter were helpful and friendly. They were prepared to help with any last minute or extra request we had during our time there and nothing was a problem. The catering was plentiful and always served punctually. Dietary requirements including vegetarian and gluten free were catered for.

The Centre was clean, comfortable and warm, all the facilities we required were readily available (data projector, screens, sound systems).

The location in Parkville was easily reached by public transport and the grounds were pleasant for our delegates to relax in during breaks. With accommodation available within easy walking distance we found the Treacy Centre met all our needs and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending it to those looking for a conference venue in inner Melbourne.

“ Thank you so much to Madeleine, Peter and staff for your ongoing assistance in organising our events for the last 6+ years. Madeleine makes everything a breeze, the attention to detail has been wonderful and nothing is ever too much trouble. All staff at the Treacy Centre have a fantastic ‘can do’, friendly attitude and the food and service is great. The venue itself is a beautiful space (the perfume from the rose gardens at the front entrance offers a humble welcoming) and the location is convenient for those needing access to parking or public transport.
