Venue Hire

Main Room

Cost:  $60 / hour (plus $30 cleaning fee and $20 caretaker fee)

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.  (Please note that the barbecues and picnic tables are not the property of Railway House and cannot be booked; we cannot guarantee that they will be available for your use at the time of your event.)

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 6 trestle tables (180 cm x 75 cm) and approximately ~25 chairs.
