This year has absolutely flown by, and brought along some amazing changes for our business. We'd like to thank everyone in our community for their support in 2018!

We will be closing the office from 12pm Friday 21 December 2018, and reopening on Monday 7 January 2019. This way the whole team can enjoy some time off with their loved ones over the holidays.

If you need to contact us during this period, please email admin@aintreegroup.com.au, and we will get onto it as soon as we're back. If the matter is urgent, please call and leave a message on 0401 843 230.

We wish everyone a happy and safe holiday break!

Kind regards,
Shane, Andrea, Ashley, Graham and the team at Aintree Group

November Highlights - Festive Office Warming Party


We hosted clients, family, friends and colleagues at our wonderful new office on Thursday 22 November.

It was a fantastic evening! Everyone enjoyed excellent company, delicious food and drink, festive decorations and live piano courtesy of our admin assistant, Geoffrey Scarlett.

There were many tours of the new space (complete with demonstrations of our fancy new coffee machine); and although the rain kept us indoors later in the evening, we did get to use our balconies a bit!

A huge thank you to all who attended! We can't wait to host many more amazing functions here in future.
