Foothills Conference Centre

Foothill’s Conference Centre opened in September 2008 and is Australia’s newest Conference Centre. It is nestled amongst the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges and located only 5 minutes from the gateway to the Yarra Valley. Set on a rustic 20 acre site in the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne, and conveniently only 45 minutes from the CBD and easily accessible from major freeways.

Owned by the Jim’s Group, Australia’s largest franchise network, Foothill’s Training and Conference Centre is used as its world wide training centre. This unique venue is ideal for any occasion, from one day training seminars to overnight conferences.

This purpose built venue offers stylish accommodation with modern training facilities unlike any other venue in the Yarra Valley. We have 5 fully air conditioned conference rooms, 10 seminar and breakout rooms and a fully equipped computer room with 20 networked PC’s. Each room has its own style to suit your individual needs and every conference room is supplied with notepads, pens, water and mints. Each room has its own separate tea and coffee station.

We have two sizeable lecture theatres, one with 80 seats and the other with 190 seats and our Restaurant can accommodate groups of up to 250 cocktail or banquet style.
Catering can be arranged for day meetings, seminars and residential conferences including morning, afternoon tea and buffet or working lunches. There are over 200 car park spaces set amid natural bushland in very tranquil surroundings.

Foothill’s Training and Conference Centre offers 96 en-suite accommodation rooms and 4 queen bedrooms in the lodge. With beautiful gardens surrounding this 20 acre complex guests will wake up to the sounds of native birds- what better way to start the day!

Each room has tea and coffee facilities, fridge, TV, phone and internet access. The centre has 24 hour reception for your guest’s peace of mind. Our accommodation lounge area is perfect for a relaxing drink by the fire with modern facilities. The bar area is separate from the function room so provides a quiet area for guests to relax and enjoy a wine or a cappuccino.
