As good as it gets?

We love to create beautiful bespoke experiences working with agents or individuals who have a vision to offer their guests something amazing, a never to forget experience. Working with Amanda “The Bubble Diva” allowed us the opportunity to tailor her program to feature a masterclass of a range of exciting champagnes, across the various events of the weekend experiences and locations. 

From the first glass of Chandon Garden spritz, with ice and a pungent spring of rosemary, as her guests arrived at the Whitsunday Coast airport. Chilled Laurenti served waist deep in the azure waters of Whitehaven beach with oysters, caviar and local tuna sashimi. Amanda’s 2012 Vintage Veuve farewell long lunch was under canvas on the amazing jetty at Coral Sea Resort, whilst champagnes were served against a backdrop of the very best Coral Seas views the Whitsundays can provide.  

Another highlight of this short stay experience was sabered magnums of Ayala at Fish D’vine, followed by an evening under fairy lights on the main beach at Airlie, as the sun set with shades of pink, violet and mauve. Guests shared great conversation and laughter, enjoyed drinking the sparkling champagne and simply being in the moment, while treated to a seafood banquet into the balmy darkening night. It is these moments of bliss and peaceful enjoyment that we aspire to create, memories of simple luxurious pleasure.

Having a certified WSET level 3 and Champagne Master level to escort, educate, entertain and delight guests opened a world of opportunities to experience this absolute King of the wine world. We can’t wait to welcome back Amanda and her guests to another bespoke, champagne focused, experience with ultimate matching and pairing. This is not simply a matching of food and wine. It is a matching of unique experiences and exquisite champagnes shared with an intimate group of guests in a corner of the world which really does epitomize both luxury and paradise.

Note to self, the Chandon Garden was a standout aperitif, affordable but fun with a touch of elegance. We have for a long-time featured Aperol Spritz as part of our on beach and yacht drink range, but with Amanda’s help have now sourced and installed this wonderful summer days alternative. We recommend you look for it in your local bottle shop.

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.

I like to say that it’s far more than shiny boats and champagne, but that will always be part of it

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.
