Perched on the western shore of North Stradbroke Island with beautiful views of Moreton Bay and within easy traveling distance from Brisbane, MBRS is the ideal location for conferences, workshops and retreats. The station has all the facilities needed for a successful event and the island provides plenty of options for leisure time activities.     

MBRS is well equipped with flexible facilities suitable for a wide range of group sizes. The station has on-site accommodation for 96 and can assist in sourcing off-site accommodation on the island if additional beds are required. Microwave internet service, modern audio visual equipment and white boards are available in three different spaces which can be arranged to fit a variety of needs. Add the services of the on-site caterer and you have everything required for an easy to plan and enjoyable gathering.
