"I'd like to pass on my sincere thanks to the whole team for such a wonderful evening last night. My team thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and our international guests were still talking about it this morning"
Thank you for putting on another spectacular night, it was absolutely perfect. These gala’s have been a work in progress for many years but I feel we have found the dream team on all fronts to make it a night to remember. The service and the food was simply incredible, thank you. I am sure Jenine has told you that it is tradition for us to move venues every two years but I am so pleased to say that we would love to remain with you at the Arboretum and make it our home. Love your work and appreciate your incredible support. Please pass on my sincerest thanks to everyone on your team.
"Thank you for all your efforts with our events. Your attention to detail and service was outstanding. We will recommend and use you again."
"I could not be happier with the services provided by the staff at Ginger Catering for our formal dinner. Throughout the entire process, from the initial viewing of the venue right through until the actual event, no task was too difficult for the Ginger team. Thank you so much for all your hard work, we truly appreciate all of your efforts. I will have no hesitation returning to the Arboretum in the future, and highly recommend your services to anyone looking for a great event."

"Every aspect I would rate as exceeded expectation. The event went without any issues and was very easy to organise with the help of your team. I would definitely recommend your services."

"The National Arboretum is a magnificent venue and lends itself beautifully to an event such as ours last Friday. We continue to be very grateful for the support of Janet Jeffs, yourself and the team at Ginger Catering as well as the National Arboretum of Canberra for helping us bring together a highly successful fundraising dinner."

The food was amazing - all our guests raved about how delicious the food was and the service was extremely fast."
