Spicers Hidden Vale – a beautiful Queensland homestead – hosted Executive PA Media guests for a relaxing overnight stay

The Executive PA Famil guests arrived just before lunch to the stunning location of Spicers Hidden Vale, a 12,000-acre Australian cattle station renowned for its flavour and adventure. Guests received a warm welcome with champagne and lunch on the Homage veranda overlooking the hills of the Great Dividing Ranges.
Whilst famils are generally jam packed, here it is essential to take in the surrounds and feel like a guest, so they enjoyed some free time. Later there was archery, a tour of the Market Garden where the chef selected fresh ingredients for the evening’s meal, and a wine and cheese tasting.
The evening included a three-course meal in the elegant Rosewood Private Dining Room, and some s’mores by the fire pit. After a good night’s sleep a gourmet a la carte breakfast was served up – to ensure ample fuel for the day’s activity.
The Polaris adventure activity took them out to greet the local cattle and to one of the property’s viewpoints. Guests were then met by the General Manager, who shared the history of Spicers Hidden Vale.

“The recent Executive PA Media event hosted at Spicers Hidden Vale provided us with the opportunity to make new business connections and to showcase a unique conference and event option in South-East QLD. The attendees were amazed at the level of luxury, extensive facilities and the unique offering we have for small to medium sized events. No doubt we will continue our relationship with these attendees and will be working together on future events.”
Sasha Eburne, Business Development Manager, Spicers Hidden Vale


“The food is exquisite. With the chefs collecting fresh produce from their very own gardens and paddocks, the paddock to plate mentality is at its very best here. If you are looking for a unique, peaceful and luxurious stay, Spicers Hidden Vale is the place to go… simply stunning!”
Donelle Lockie, PA, Delloite

“I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Spicers Hidden Vale. It’s such a relaxing and beautiful location. The whole team made us feel like VIPs from the minute of arrival. I’ll definitely be booking this venue for my team in the future.”
Nicole Rosevear, EA, NTI

“From the moment we arrived, Sarah and Sasha and the staff at Spicers were incredibly attentive and you can clearly see they love where they work and what they do. I have sent an email to the partners of my firm outlining my experience at Spicers, heavily recommending it for future partner retreats and client events/team building. I also recommended it for personal visits. I will also be booking Spicers Balfour Kitchen in New Farm a lot more.”
Erin Clarke, EA, DLA Piper

“It was a really brilliant site visit – mainly down to our hosts, Sasha and Sarah, who both could not be more friendly and welcoming. One of the things I have fed back to my manager in particular is that I would be very happy to work with either of these ladies on an event. Lots of activities and things to do on-site, well equipped and thought out to cater for all tastes.”
Kylie Fawcett, Executive Assistant & Office Manager, Liberty International Underwriters

“When booking events I have very little margin for error and need to partner with venues who are genuinely committed to the process. I would have zero hesitation in recommending Spicers Hidden Vale and its exceptional team to any EA seeking a comprehensive event solution.”
Jo Webb, EA to Group CEO, Davidson
