Conference Venue

The WAHO 2019 Conference Australia is pleased to partner with the Crowne Plaza Terrigal Pacific as the main Conference venue for this international celebration of the Arabian horse. Located just a short 90 minute drive from the heart of Sydney, the continent's largest, most vibrant and founding city, the Crowne Plaza Terrigal Pacific offers premium Central Coast hotel accommodation in a spectacular beachside setting.

Crowne Plaza Terrigal Pacific offers the ultimate beach accommodation on the Central Coast of NSW, with all the facilities and comforts for a memorable stay. The award-winning 4.5-star 'Jewel of the Central Coast' facing Terrigal beach includes panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, 199 hotel rooms each with its own balcony, and three spacious light-filled ocean-facing restaurants and bars. Ideally situated in a secluded natural setting, WAHO attendees will have the opportunity to walk to the beach, stroll to the village shops and savour the warmth, beauty and casual comfort that defines the best of Australia in the summertime.

Historic Terrigal, a slice of paradise located between Sydney and Newcastle of great significance to the local Aboriginal tribes, is blessed with pristine beaches, stunning coastline, lush bushland and undeniable energy. Experience the delights of Terrigal Village such as boutique shopping, gourmet eateries, entertainment venues, and stunning local attractions including The Skillion and The Haven, all within walking distance of the hotel. The Central Coast of New South Wales is one of Australia's premier vacation and natural getaways, with sweeping vistas of the Pacific Ocean, idyllic inland lakes and an abundance of leisure and adventure activities, all on the doorstep of the greater metropolitan Sydney area, the reinvented energy of Newcastle, and the agricultural heartland of the Hunter Valley, home to New South Wales' leading wine region and the Horse Capital of Australia in and around Scone.     

The Grand Ballroom will be the key venue for the WAHO General Sessions on Wednesday & Friday, as well as the Gala Dinner & Ball on Friday evening. The WAHO Executive Meeting will take place in the McMasters Room on the 4th (Monday) & 5th (Tuesday),  while the Forresters Room will accommodate the World Registrar's Meeting all day Tuesday the 5th February. The Haven Terrace, a gorgeous outdoor venue on the second floor overlooking the Pacific Ocean will serve as the ideal backdrop to greet guests at the Welcome BBQ on Tuesday evening. 

The Crowne Plaza Terrigal Pacific will not only host the WAHO 2019 Conference General Sessions & social activities, but will also serve as the official host hotel for accommodation. All WAHO 2019 Conference attendees are encouraged to book early and take advantage of the guaranteed room rates.
