Absolutely stunning venue with inside and outside wow factor.  Donna at Port of Townsville was particularly helpful and professional.  We are over the moon about our daughter's wedding reception venue!  Larelle McPherson

Taste The North was created to showcase our produce, chefs and performing artists in North Queensland.  I started investigating locations around Townsville to hold a stunning black tie dinner, the moment I arrived at the Quayside Terminal I realised this was the perfect location. Not only did the venue have Magnetic Island and Castle Hill as a back drop,  the amazing architectural design of the building was a huge bonus. Donna and the team were professional, provided prompt responses to all inquiries in securing the venue and made sure everything was in place over the weekend of the event. The BMW Townsville – Taste The North gala dinner was a huge success, we had so much positive feedback from the dinner including how amazing and perfect the venue was. We loved hosting the event outside under the Breezeway, our chefs used the internal space to plate up in front of our 250 guest.  Thank you Donna and the Port of Townsville to assist making our event truly a memorable and spectacular evening.  Matt Merrin – Jam Corner
