Voted “Best Sustainable Venue” By Event Professionals

Woohoo! Doltone House Darling Island venue has been announced as the 2020 Best Sustainable Venue in NSW, voted by event professionals! The award came from the Spice Hot 100: Venues & Hotels, an annual list of the top 100 leading event venues, resorts and hotels from across Australia.

Sustainable Event Management is a huge topic in the events industry with many organisers and stakeholders making serious implementations and measures to reduce their environmental impact. We take an active commitment to environmental issues by contributing time, research and development of our products and services. Below are some of the practices and products that show our initiative in helping our clients produce greener and more sustainable events. 

Sustainable Wine & Cheese Masterclass

Go green from vine to glass. Extend your event with a Sustainable Wine & Cheese tasting. Journey through Australia’s organic and sustainable wines paired with locally sourced gourmet cheeses from the NSW region.

Presto Pesto Activation

Have left over basil? Don’t Waste It! Learn the essence of this Italian sauce bursting with fresh and beautiful flavours. This activation is led by a highly trained chef instructor with an interactive hands on approach.

Supporting Local Produce

Doltone House aims to assist clients in minimising their environmental impact by using local rather than imported food and beverage suppliers wherever possible. We plan our menus using in-season, fresh and predominately organic food, proudly supporting local farmers, wineries and suppliers from the Sydney Basin and NSW coastline.

Plant Based Menu

(chocolate mousse delight)

Our award winning menus include a larger number of delicious vegetarian, vegan and plant based options.

Many people commented on how good the food was – one chap who was a vegan …was in raptures about the Chocolate Mousse. I know many chefs are not keen on giving out kitchen secrets but is the recipe for the vegan Chocolate Mousse available for our guest? He just wants to make it for himself – not sell it over the internet!!”

Bespoke Botanical Menu

Our creative team can work with you to integrate both the food, beverage and service around your concept. We welcome the challenge to push the boundaries and think outside the box to create a truly unique and memorable event.

Boozy And Not So Boozy

Boozy Bee to start your event! Taste our range of botanical boozy iced teas and mocktails or select your wines from our local organic beverage package. 

Sustainable Catering Packaging

We recognise the ongoing need for single use catering packaging and cutlery and even more so for consumables that have the least environmental impact. Doltone House uses recyclable or biodegradable catering packaging.

About Darling Island

We are proud to be housed in the first 6 star green-star rated building in NSW. The building achieved carbon neutral status and took the mantle as one of the first two buildings in Australia to achieve the certification under NABERS and Climate Active, and in alignment with the international Greenhouse Gas Protocol.

By adopting and expanding on the principles and philosophies of the building, Doltone House aims to lead the way into the future by providing one of the greenest event venues in Australia.

Green features of the building:

  • One of the smallest environmental footprints of any premium grade commercial office building.
  • Structural concrete is an Australian first made from recycled products and minimum use of PVC.
  • Leading water management features such as a black water recycling system and green standard water fixtures.
  • 100kW of solar installed on the roof. 
  • Energy consumption reduced by 28%.
  • Carbon emissions reduced by 39%.
  • Gas-fired generator to power building onsite, waste heat is then used to run an absorption chiller that cools the building.
