Based in Newcastle (New South Wales) Hot Rock Events + Catering applies a fresh, contemporary and professional approach to its catering, functions and event management business.


Proprietors Michael and Melissa take enormous pride in what they offer. Melissa’s extensive Event Management experience ranges from the Southern Pacific Hotel Corporation being Banquet Co-ordinator at the Hindley Park Royal in Adelaide and then Potts Point in Sydney to being the Event Co-ordinator at the Australian Jockey Club, Randwick, organising social events and major race days for literally thousands of guests.

Here in Newcastle Melissa enjoys co-ordinating over 30 weddings a year and large events from conception to completion with such companies as Tomago Aluminium, OneSteel, Newcastle Permanent and Worley Parsons to name just a few. Visit the buzz for testimonials.


Michael’s fifteen years spent in Sydney and two years in Europe training at Michelin star restaurants in France, Italy and Switzerland, a career highlighted by two years as Penfolds Wine’s Executive Chef at the Magill Estate Restaurant and two years as head chef at Buon Ricordo (voted as Sydney’s best Italian restaurant for the last 10 years by the SMH) has a strong belief that service, the best possible ingredients and simplicity are at the heart of a great meal.


Combined with a staff of 30 they make the successful team that is Hot Rock Events + Catering.
