Showcase of fine dining and beach fun at chamber event
Rockingham’s beautiful beach, fine dining and hospitality was on show on Saturday, as 500 guests attended the Rockingham Kwinana Chamber of Commerce Long Table lunch.
The event, in its fourth year, was again a sell-out as residents, the business community, visitors from across Perth, representatives from the West Coast Eagles and Premier Mark McGowan thronged to the marquee on the Rockingham foreshore.
Attendees were treated to a six-course smorgasbord of culinary delights and premium wines, while lively entertainment and the auction were well-received on Rockingham’s north-facing beach.
On Sunday, the Big Brews Beach Party was also well-attended, with Rockingham patrons making the most of the beach surrounds.
Chamber chief executive Tony Solin said the weekend was a celebration of everything that makes Rockingham an excellent place to live and work.
“The community once again banded together to make the weekend an absolute success,” he said.
“The RKCC staff and committee would like to say a big thank you to major sponsor Malibu Fresh Essentials and to the local businesses that offered up their services and time.”
City of Rockingham Deputy Mayor Deb Hamblin said the Long Table Lunch was a popular event that draws guests from near and far.
“The City is very pleased to support this event as it is an investment in the ongoing development of a positive association between the city’s brand and a high-quality dining experience, in which the quality of local produce and restaurants is central to the event’s strong appeal,” she said,
“The event also supports the City’s desire to provide a tourism lifestyle, identified as one of the primary aspirations in the 2015-2025 Strategic Community Plan.”
