Ivory's Rock Conference Centre (IRCC) is a triumph of opposites - a modern facility in a pristine natural environment. Although close to Brisbane, It could easily be in the heart of the Australian wilderness. Established in 1992, IRCC has been developed in harmony with the natural bushland, winning awards for environment and design. The Lost Weekend is happy to call IRCC home. Natural Features The Centre is located on 800 hectares of natural forest and parklands and is home to abundant wildlife, with many species of birds and wallabies including the endangered Brush Tailed Rock Wallaby. As we are located in the centre of the Peak Mountains, bushwalking tracks afford magnificent views over coastal and inland regions. The natural beauty of the area includes a large lake, billabong and attractive creeks and rock pools.
Amphitheatre The latest technology has been used for the Amphitheatre. The perfect venue for any outdoor concert, the Amphitheatre is situated in a natural basin, with Ivory's Rock providing a spectacular backdrop. The Amphitheatre has terraced level to provide all with a great view, with an outdoor lobby area and bathrooms at the top. It is completely covered by shade sails to provide protection from the sun, making it a venue for all times of the day and all seasons. Pavilion Simple, functional and designed to blend into the surroundings, the Pavilion forms the hub of The Lost Weekend. The Pavilion functions as a meeting place and also provides facilities for 25 shops and cafés situated in a horseshoe around the central dome. Great care has been taken to make sure the Pavilion area blends in with the environment, and each shop is painted a slightly different shade of subtle bush colours ranging from green to brown to enhance this connection. The dome is the focal point of the Pavilion. It provides a large, relaxed area in which to dine or meet with friends, and gives welcome shade during the heat of the day. The Pavilion area is also lit for nightime dining. Camping grounds The Lost Weekend Camping grounds are named after some of Brisbane’s most loved bands. Stay in Regurgitatorville or Custard Central.
