Venue Hire

Please note that due to the recent tightening of COVID-19 restrictions, we are currently unable to take bookings. 

We will update this on July 12th when the government reviews restriction levels.  

Railway House has 3 great spaces available for hire:

Main Room
Pavilion
Bocce Courts

To request a booking, please complete the House Hire Form, making sure that you first read the House Hire Information document for further information and fees.  We recommend that you ring or email the office to check availability before submitting your form.

Both the Main Room and the Pavilion can also be hired for meetings, workshops, classes and playgroups on weekdays and evenings as well as weekends. Please contact the office on 9380 6654 or admin@railwayneighbourhoodhouse.org.au to check availability.

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 9:30AM and 2:00PM

  • No restrictions for bookings of 6 hours or more
  • Please factor in time to set up, pack up and clean (unless you are paying for cleaning service) into your booking time
  • Cleaning option, if desired, must be selected at the time of booking as it can often not be added later due to booking crossovers.
  • There is a $20 caretaker fee applicable to all bookings; this covers the cost of our caretaker who will open and close the venue.

Bocce Courts & Equipment

Bocce equipment, for use on our public courts, can be hired alone or in conjunction with the Main Room or Pavilion.

Cost: $20 (flat fee) 

*Please note that the Bocce Court area will be redeveloped into a Community Food Garden in early 2020, with one lane being retained for Bocce.  The Bocce courts are currently in poor condition so we have adjusted the equipment hire fee accordingly. 

Use of the Bocce equipment from March 2020 onwards may not be possible due to garden works; staff will endeavour to keep prospective hirers up to date on developments.  Please contact the office on 9380 6654 or admin@railwayneighbourhoodhouse.org.au  if you’d like to inquire.
