Event and Catering Information

Our Catering

At UNE Life Events & Catering, we understand the need for delicious catering that is both quality, convenient and hassle-free. Our catering options are varied, with both pickup and delivery options available. Catering is all about the food, which we let speak for itself, and accompany it with timely service and biodegradable packaging. If you are looking for a little more than delicious food and hassle-free catering, you can pair our catering services with our event services, our available venues, or even our equipment hire for that little bit extra.

Locations and Delivery Fees

Please note, the catering delivery fees are not inclusive of any equipment hire or staffing. If you require these please speak with our events & catering team.

Our flat rate delivery fee & free UNE delivery is available for orders to be delivered between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.

“Thank you so much for the catering for our party. It was absolutely fabulous!!!! Far greater than I expected. There was plenty of food and heaps left over. Everyone thought it was really good and I kept getting asked where I got my catering. from. Natalie, you set it up perfectly and we got everyone fed with the two lines going in quick timing.  I’m sorry I missed you when you picked everything up. I hope you found everything okay. The boys had cleared it out for you so we could dance. Anyhow, thank you for looking after us so well. I will recommend you to everyone I know who wants to party with caterers. I really really appreciate your contribution to our party , it made it a great success. Thank you again and our compliments to the chefs.” Cory and Rob Dewhurst
