The Best Venue in the Pilbara
It’s a secret to most of Australia, but the Pilbara is a great place to live, work and visit. The great outdoors is the obvious draw card, but the increasing number of great events and things to do in the Pilbara make it even more appealing. There are some great event venues in Karratha and in Hedland but one venue that is becoming increasingly popular for events, live music, functions and more is not in Karratha or Hedland –it is in Whim Creek, perfectly positioned between the two!
The Whim Creek Hotel reopened to the public in 2015 when two local Aboriginal corporations bought the hotel from mining operator Venturex. Since then the famous old hotel has become the best event venue in the Pilbara. First built in 1886, the current building was constructed in the early 1900’s. The upstairs was once hotel rooms, but is now a large, comfortable function room suitable for any party, conference, business event, AGM, meeting, performance or special occasion. It can be laid out in meeting/conference format, as a theatre or party venue.
The hotel also has large outdoor and grassed areas which can host bigger events. In recent years the hotel has been the venue to film festivals, boxing tournaments, music events and even the Whim Creek Rodeo! The Whim Creek Pub has established a reputation for good quality food and drink and offers a huge selection of event catering options here from finger foods to BBQs. You can choose from over 20 menus or build your own menu platters. Alternatively select from the menu of pub classics or let the chef design one for you.
Being a hotel, Whim Creek offers comfortable accommodation options – making it the ideal venue for longer business events. The management can even arrange for team building activities such as indigenous tours or motivational speakers, as well as evening entertainment.
So, if you are looking for a venue in the Pilbara for your function the Whim Creek Hotel is a great choice.
