The staff at Duchesne College make organising functions and workshop events a breeze! The staff are friendly, helpful and accommodating to the needs and requirements of our varied delegates. The facilities, location and catering make this conference venue one which we will continue to work with for many years to come. Thank you!

Melanie Wratten | Development Coordinator | UQ International Development | The University of Queensland

Duchesne was a wonderful venue to host my two groups of professionals from across Africa. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and did everything to make my groups feel at home – including birthday cakes for the morning teas on participant’s birthdays! The food was great, the kitchen staff are able to cater for all needs and the facilities are lovely.

Renee Montgomery | Development Coordinator | UQ International Development | The University of Queensland

Since 2010, the Queensland Academies Science Mathematics and Technology Campus has been delighted to partner with Duchesne College for our pre-entry Engagement Camp. The facilities are exceptional, the staff go far beyond what would be expected of them and most importantly for my 14 year old students, the food is always wonderful – plentiful with great variety. 2015 will be our 6th camp and Duchesne is again our first choice.

Helen Hall Deputy Principal | Science, Mathematics & Technology Campus

'Duchesne College has been a welcoming and congenial venue at which to host our Shakespeare Summer school for the last few years. Convenient to UQ, and with excellent facilities and supportive staff, participants in the school have enjoyed the location and atmosphere. '
