6.30 pm – 9.00 pm - Welcome Reception: Fraser’s Restaurant, Kings Park

The photograph is of Fraser's Restaurant, the location for the Conference Welcome Reception.

Fraser’s – a place that celebrates the best Western Australia has to offer in food, wine and service, set in one of the most spectacular locations in the state. Fraser’s is named after the avenue it sits on, the famous Fraser Avenue in beautiful Kings Park, which was named after Malcolm Fraser – the first Surveyor-General of Perth. The avenue is lined with lemon-scented gums, their interlocking branches forming a majestic canopy over the spectacular entrance to the park. The addition of a new, permanent State Reception Centre situated on the top of the building, high in the gum trees has a stunning view over the city and river.

Fraser’s Restaurant opened in 1993, with executive chef Chris Taylor at the helm. Since these early days the restaurant has won numerous awards, and Chris is considered one of the top chefs in the state.

Coaches will depart Crown Perth at 6.00pm for those who would like to walk about the gardens and take in the views and 6.30pm for the 15 minute drive. Finger food and drinks will be served, plus the opportunity to network informally with fellow delegates, sponsors and exhibitors. Coaches will return delegates to the Conference hotels at 8.30pm and 9.00pm.
