Event Portfolio

Ochre Catering has a clear focus on providing the best concept catering in North Queensland, with some amazing themed events and functions under our belt, we are looking forward to assisting conference organisers in creating a unique event that will provide delegates and participants with a truly memorable experience. Our Events are often the “Highlight of the Conference”.

Under any conditions and in any locale, we can provide amazing catering, delicious food to suit any diet, the best wines and professional service in both the logistics of event planning and its execution on the day (or night).

From outback train stops to the deck of a luxury yacht cruising the Great Barrier Reef; from rainforests and beaches to someone’s back yard; from art centres to aquariums – we know all of the venues and locations, and who to look to for providing equipment, technical support and special effects.

Ochre Restaurant and Catering have a fantastic range of budgets, locations, concept ideas, net rates, and FOC policies.  We look forward to hearing from you to discuss your requirements. You will find sample event menus, and a portfolio of some of the events that we have recently been involved with.

As many others have found in the past, our fare is healthy, environmentally sympathetic, sustainable, and most importantly, tastes great! What more could you ask for?
