ABOUT CAPRICORN CONVENTION
Ready for a break? Capricorn Convention returns in 2022 to help you recharge and refocus alongside your fellow Members, Preferred Suppliers, and industry experts.
Taking place at the luxurious Intercontinental Hayman Island Resort, in the heart of the Whitsundays, you will have an opportunity to connect with other automotive businesses at seminars, networking events, tours and gala functions. There will also be plenty of time to enjoy the world-famous resort facilities on the steps of the Great Barrier Reef.
The Capricorn Convention has previously sold out early, and with a limited number of spots available, we are expecting the 2022 event will be no exception. So, make sure you book now to be part of it and embark on the experience of a lifetime.
Welcome to the Intercontinental Hayman Island Resort.
Hayman Island is one of the most beautiful in the Whitsundays, with expansive views over the Coral Sea.
The most northerly island in the Whitsunday group, Hayman Island provides outstanding access to the Great Barrier Reef which remains one of the seven wonders of the natural world and a must-see destination for all.
This June, the private island will be taken over by the Capricorn Convention who have exclusive use of the Intercontinental Hayman Island Resort.
One of Australia’s most iconic holiday destinations, the Intercontinental invites guests to embark on destination experiences, diving the Great Barrier Reef, exploring Whitehaven Beach, going on guided jet ski adventures, taking glass bottom boat cruises around Hayman Island’s bays or enjoying private helicopter tours.
On land, those with an adventurous spirit can explore the natural bushland teeming with wildlife and stunning vistas. Or just relax and immerse yourself in the luxury that comes with a stay in a 5-star resort.
With exclusive access to the Intercontinental Resort, Capricorn Members will have their pick of the rooms in the Pool, Lagoon and Beach wings.
These distinct areas are artfully intertwined providing access to spectacular swimming pools, panoramic seascapes, and tropical rainforest gardens.
While steeped in history, the iconic resort still provides the most modern amenities having recently benefited from a $135 million refurbishment.
Convention Rooms are ‘shared’, with 2 delegates to occupy each room.
