Venue Hire

Update – October 12th, 2002: 

Please note that due to COVID-19 restrictions which limit social gatherings, we are currently unable to confirm any bookings.  If you are considering an event in November, December or beyond, please complete a Venue Hire form to request a tentative booking.  We will contact you to acknowledge receipt of your request and again once we know if current restrictions will permit your event to go ahead.   

We will post further updates as restrictions ease.  

Railway House has 2 great spaces available for hire:

The Main Room can be booked for a morning event (between 9:00 AM and 2:00 PM) or for an afternoon event (between 1:30 PM and early evening).  There is a 3-hour minimum. Bookings of 6 hours or more may be made at any start / finish time.

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.  When you hire the Main Room, complementary bocce equipment is available (for use subject to court availability); please let staff know if you wish to do so.

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).

  • Morning bookings between 9:30AM and 2:00PM

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