  • On behalf of the committee of the Whitsunday Coast Chamber of Commerce we would like to thank Lure for our Christmas party held very recently. The venue was amazing and all of our members commented on how such a wonderful venue is in an amazing location right on the waterfront. The standard of the food well exceeded our expectations and represented good value in terms of both quality and quantity.

    All of this was made possible by Nolwenn who was fantastic and arranged everything to the exact detail that we wanted. She and the staff were fabulous and we will certainly recommend Lure to hold any type of event or function.
    Mark Beale, President Whitsunday Chamber of Commerce – December 2016
