Areas

Lawn - Marquee
Our premier event space adjacent to the Yarra with an epic view of the Melbourne CBD with fake grass and a chilled out vibe.
Plus, on the lawn we have a purpose built mega screen to watch all the action live and loud. Plus, there is a 15mx10m marquee to keep you warm and dry incase of some dodgy weather.
Lawn - Outside
In the same area as the above but outside of the marquee. We've covered all the tables with umbrealls but we need to say that if there is some full on weather it might be slightly uncomfortable. But it's spring and we're confident it'll be all good but if not we can move you inside if there is severe weather.
