What our clients say

The HC Coombs Centre is a unique property in one of Sydney’s best locations…a secret no longer! This purpose built training facility provides an excellent learning environment with multiple areas and flexible layouts. My experience working with the staff at HC Coombs has been one of exceptional customer service and dedication to providing a first-class experience for all.


We found all staff friendly, responsive and genuine in their keenness to provide a high level of service and great customer experience. The room set up and workshop logistics ran very smoothly. It is uncommon that a venue makes it so easy. Even on the second morning when we had a challenge getting audio to work, the help provided was timely and competent. As a facilitator, it is awesome to be able to trust that the venue wants to partner with you to make it a great experience for everyone.


I would use the H.C. Coombs Centre for future events without hesitation, and I recommend to others at Amatil looking for an exceptional venue. I have found all the staff at the H.C. Coombs Centre friendly, helpful and efficient. It is an outstanding venue for offsite team meetings, training, conference, etc., with beautiful rooms and awesome views, excellent audio visual facilities, delicious catering; all in a beautiful setting and ease of access close to public transport and by car makes it a perfect choice for events.
