Waterfront Venues in Melbourne FAQ
I’m looking for a waterfront venue overlooking Port Phillip Bay. Any suggestions?
Two fantastic waterfront locations in Port Phillip Bay are Brighton and St Kilda - these charming suburbs are both South East of Melbourne Central. You’ll have front row seats to beautiful Port Phillip Bay!
We’re considering arriving at our wedding by boat, is this possible?
Some waterfront venues will allow you to arrive by boat which is definitely something different and offers guests a fantastic photo opportunity. Discuss this with your venue manager who may be able to arrange a boat at reduced rates.
Where can I find the best waterfront venue for a corporate lunch?
We highly recommend Melbourne Docklands on the Yarra River for corporate lunches. This central location is easy to get to making it convenient for guests from all parts of the city. The panoramic views are sure to impress and might really help you close that big deal.
How much does it cost to hire a waterfront venue for a corporate lunch in Melbourne?
A minimum spend is a great option for any event because you don’t pay hire fees. All you need to do is spend an agreed amount on food and drink. Depending on the type of event, this could be out of your own pocket or money your guests spend. The average minimum spend fee for a waterfront venue in Melbourne is around $4,000. So, if you have 50 guests, that’s $80 per person. Most venues in Melbourne offer bespoke packages that are priced per person. Function packages are great as they will usually include the function room (or venue hire), catering, and other additional facilities and services. For a cocktail party, prices start at $25 per person while sit-down meals start at around $45 per person. (All data from Tagvenue.com)
