Main Room

Cost:  $50 / hour

The Main Room is located in the beautiful old railway station and is the perfect setting for birthday parties, celebrations and even weddings.

It has a well-equipped kitchen attached to it and opens onto the old station platform, now a huge undercover veranda.

There is a playground, public barbecues and picnic tables just a few metres away.

The Main Room is approximately 6m x 8m in size and the veranda is approximately 21m x 5 m. The kitchen includes a stove / oven, microwave, refrigerator, kettle and urn and a range of basic cooking and serving utensils.

Feel free to come in and look around!

Hire of the Main Room includes 4 trestle tables (180 cm x 75 cm) and 20 chairs.

Cleaning equipment is supplied and hirers are required to leave the venue as they found it.  Alternatively, you can pay for our cleaning service ($30).

Please note:

  • Minimum 3 hour booking on weekends
  • Morning bookings between 9:30 and 2:00
  • Afternoon bookings between 1:30 and 6:00 (later finish available – contact office)
  • No restrictions for bookings of 6 hours or more

  • Cleaning option, if desired, must be selected at the time of booking as it can often not be added later due to booking crossovers.

Bocce Courts

*Please note that the Bocce Court area will be redeveloped into a Community Food Garden in early 2019, with one lane being retained for Bocce.  The Bocce courts aren’t in great condition currently so we have reduced the hire fees accordingly. 

Late January and February 2019 bookings for the Bocce Courts may not be possible due to garden works; staff will endeavour to keep prospective hirers up to date on developments.  

Cost: $20 when hired in conjunction with the Main Room or $10 / hour if hired separately.  (Includes equipment.)  

The Bocce Courts and equipment can be hired alone or in conjunction with the Main Room or Pavilion.

Please note

  • Hire time includes set-up and pack-up time
