A Meeting Place Like No Other

Is River Valley your next Conference Venue?

Finding the perfect venue for a conference, corporate getaway, team building or staff bonding session is never easy.

Do you look for somewhere close to home, somewhere where ‘everybody’ goes, or do you look for a venue where the surroundings might just give you that creative edge?  A place where no cellphone reception means that you can focus on the task at hand, or a place where it’s easy to keep in touch all the time?  A venue where you can walk out of the door straight into natures own setting, or a venue where you can walk out of the room, down the hall, and be back downtown?

A venue where you and you business will be valued.

We can provide the surroundings for YOU to do your best work.  That’s our promise.

Testimonials & Reviews

“We couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing setting that suited all our needs with the age range from 5 months to 80 years!”

Hi Nicola and JJ

We had such a wonderful weekend at River Valley – everyone is still buzzing, especially Mum and Dad. We couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing setting that suited all our needs with the age range from 5 months to 80 years! And the weather was pretty kind too.

Thanks for keeping the secret, although Nicola nearly let it out before the great grandparents and grandma had met Mia!

Janet,

Many thanks to your team at river valley. We all had a great night on Saturday. A long time since some of the cousins had met, so lots of laughs and noise.

A shame the weather didn’t behave, but it is winter and the lodge was lovely and warm.

Thanks again for everything.

Cheers

Wendy
