The Boatbuilders Yard is one of Melbourne’s truly unique function venues, located close to the CBD in South Wharf, Melbourne’s vibrant hospitality and convention precinct.

Our delicious array of food options and thoughtfully developed drink packages are flexible in their design and are easily customised.

We’re professional and thorough, yet offer something a bit different for our clients, with an emphasis on creating a relaxed environment.

We can be formal if that’s what you’re after, but if you want to have giant Jenga and Connect 4 games available for guests that’s easily done.

NEW: Live music license for the decks!
