  • Came here for a family gathering on Christmas day and had a fantastic time. There is plenty of room for people to setup for a picnic or BBQ and there are few walks near by. Plenty of parking. The boat...  more »

  • I held a management planning day here and have already booked the next one, it was that good. From the minute we arrived all staff were fully ready for us and at every step they knew who we were, why we were at the cafe / boat shed / etc and ushered us seamlessly around. VIP treatment. Lunch was delicious and plentiful, the venue itself is a beautiful old building very well maintained, and the grounds are, unsurprisingly, gorgeous. Lots of team building experiences including rowing and bush walking - my team loved it. The whole day - venue, food and AV, for 4ppl - was only $532, which is excellent value for a corporate booking. This is now our go-to venue.
  • The place is great for a small family getaway. There are many barbecues for public use, and there is enough place to sit and relax. The place is also scenic. However, getting parking space is next to impossible. Hunt for parking spoils the whole experience, and most of the times people end up parking on the main road, which is a big climb from the main venue. If there was sufficient parking, thus would have been a great place for a family day out. We won't be going here anytime soon again.
  • Great relaxed environment and amazing food. Happy to go back many times.
  • We return here to sit by the river with convenient food and drink while watching the public try rowing.
  • Hands down one of the most beautiful places to sit and have lunch and coffee. Choice of 1) Kiosk on bottom level where you can also hire a boat for a trip down the Yarra as well as get a barista made coffee and simple but fresh food options OR 2) Cafe on second level with cafe style dining enjoyed with a fantastic view of the river OR 3) High end restaurant with an internationally experienced head chef in charge of the kitchen as well as tranquil view of the Yarra Absolutely spoilt for choice. Must be seen and experienced to be believed
