Award-winning food & wine
For a truly unique culinary experience, choose to have your function at the world-class Royal International Convention Centre (Royal ICC).
We're the only convention centre in Australia offering award-winning food and wine carefully selected from some of the nation’s most prestigious competitions.
Nowhere else can you enjoy produce awarded gold, silver and bronze medals in the RNA's Royal Queensland Food and Wine Show (RQFWS) and iconic Royal Queensland Show (Ekka).
From the winner of Australia’s best steak and lamb to a selection of trophy winning wines and cheeses, we pride ourselves on keeping it local and only using the best of the best.
Whether it’s award-winning beef from the Darling Downs, cheese from Maleny or Mooloolaba King Prawns from the Sunshine Coast, we offer innovative menus that tell the story behind the food and cater for all occasions.
“ ... one of the best meals ever served in this state in ages ... ”

“ ... the chefs excelled themselves ... ’’

Meet our chef
The Royal ICC’s internationally experienced Executive Chef, Sean Cummings, has been with the venue since it opened in March 2013.
Sean was formerly Executive Chef at the Park Hyatt Melbourne and before that worked under Harvey Nichols at the prestigious Oxo Tower Restaurant in London.
Driven by the region’s quality local produce, Sean and his team create seasonal menus that feature award-winning ingredients.
A menu fit for a Princess
The Royal ICC invites you to experience a menu that was specially designed for royalty, which can be customised to suit any budget.
Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal (Princess Anne) was treated to some of Queensland’s finest produce at an evening hosted by the Royal ICC in October 2014.
The “Great Australian BBQ” menu, created exclusively for the Royal visit, was designed to showcase the finest local produce on offer.
