It’s not all about shiny boats and champagneFeatured

Whitehaven Event Co is the vision and creation of long term Whitsunday Tourism identity, chef and restauranteur Kev Collins and partner Katelyn Aslett, with a rich design history and passion for creating luxury bespoke experiences, always with a culinary focus and deeply personal grounding in sense of place. We, Katelyn and Kev collide in our sense of service and our joy in making magic moments happen for guests, making Whitehaven Event Co the place to come for the best bespoke experiences in the Whitsundays.

We created Whitehaven Event Co to showcase our deep connection with the special and unique aspects of the region not found in mainstream tourism brochures.

We wanted to introduce friends and guests to the places that we love to enjoy. We like to say that it’s far more than shiny boats and champagne, but of course that will always be part of it.

It is also about the world famous pure white silica sand of Whitehaven beach and its crystal clear waters. We take our guests to those special places in the Whitsundays we enjoy ourselves and give them the experiences we love to live ourselves.

From enjoying freshly shucked oysters, standing knee deep in warm tropical waters while sipping French champagne to fabulous lunches featuring the very best local seafood, Wagyu beef and regional produce. Great food is as important to us as the paradise where we serve it. 

A Whitehaven Event Co experience is designed as shared boutique experiences for small to medium groups who already have a connection.

From special family celebrations and birthdays, small private weddings, corporate or incentive travel groups and even mini conference groups, we look to provide experiences and memories which offer our guests the very best of the Whitsundays, the amazing beauty of the natural environment, the relaxed and carefree tropical lifestyle and the most incredible fresh seafood and produce.

From days on Whitehaven Beach on a superyacht, mud crab lunches on the banks of the crocodile infested Proserpine River to barefoot black-tie dinners on the Airlie Beach foreshore we are bringing back the packaged holiday, but with serious WOW factor. 

Personal caring service, attention to detail and the unique bespoke experiences only we can provide, working with our partners to make Whitehaven Event co the go to boutique provider in the Whitsundays, able to personally tailor our packages and product offering to meet your exact specifications and desires.

We set out to provide the very best short stay holidays, combining the very best accommodation, seamless travel arrangements and incorporating experiences that typically just don’t exist in the mainstream market.

Start a conversation and we may just see you on the water.
