St Pius X College, Sydney (High Energy Sports)

“This is our tenth college visit to Brisbane.  We bring a group of our senior football squad of 16. We always find the St Lucia Campus a great place to locate. We are fortunate enough to have stayed at King’s College on five occasions. It is a safe and convenient location with top rate facilities. The catering is good, our players complementing the wide range of foods on offer. Our boys enjoy the comfortable layout of both relaxation and study rooms. They used the pool for recovery sessions which was a bonus having played eight matches through the week. Hopefully we can be housed at King’s College again when return in 2015.”


Ignited Youth

“For the past two years our youth group has stayed and utilised the facilities at King’s College, St. Lucia during our attendance of Planetshakers Youth Conference held at the Convention Centre in January. We have always found Sue and the staff at King’s to be pleasant and helpful, always willing to accommodate our needs and requests. The facilities at King’s provide plenty of activities for our young people to relax during free time from conference, and the catering staff always excel in their hospitality with lovely meals prepared to keep us energised for the week.

On behalf of all our young people I would like to thank the staff at King’s College for their commitment to providing quality conference accommodation and hospitality and we hope to stay again at King’s in the future.”

Sally-Ann Martin
Youth Pastor

Napsa Congress

“King’s College is a great place to host a conference. Our congress attendees were impressed, especially with the excellent food and facilities such as the pool and gym.

Staff were very accommodating which helped our organising committee’s events run all that more smoothly. I would definitely recommend King’s College as the primary accommodation site for any conference.”

Cindy McGreggor

Reforming Alliance

“I wish to express the grateful thanks of the Executive of the Reforming Alliance for all your assistance and liaison during our recent conference and meetings during the period 3-13 July 2006. You went well out of your way to ensure that all our members and visitors were well looked after and made to feel at home.

In general terms, the environment was very amenable for our purposes. People were impressed by how quickly requests were attended to, and for example, how any maintenance needs were swiftly handled. We also appreciated your practical help with frequent meeting arrangements.

All members thought the food was excellent, and the care and attention of the chefs and the catering and kitchen staff is exceptional.

The package of material and information about King’s and the surrounding area; which was provided to each of our longer stay members, was also very helpful, and I noted the strong attention to fire safety, including our briefing time.”

Peter Bentley
National Administrator

The Engineering Link Group

“We have used King’s College annually since 1998, and we wouldn’t dream of going anywhere else. Each year we bring about 100 senior school students to study engineering at UQ and the excellent facilities at King’s have helped make our courses extremely successful.

We also find that our business dealings with King’s College move extremely efficiently. The staff is very accommodating to all our requirements, particularly Sue Eekelschot, which ensure our events run smoothly.

I strongly commend King’s College to any organiser of large conferences”
