Catering / Public Catering

The Townsville Entertainment & Convention Centre’s contemporary food style has an emphasis on the North’s finest ingredients.

From gourmet finger food to a sumptuous banquet we have menus to suit all occasions. Because every event is different, our catering team can tailor a menu to suit your special requirements and budget.

The Centre has seven food and beverage outlets throughout the venue including bars, hot food outlets and a Cafe. These outlets will open, if consistent with the nature of the event.
