Situated on the peaceful banks of the Swan River, only fifteen minutes’ drive from Perth CBD, Mounts Bay Sailing Club is a uniquely stunning and picturesque waterfront venue.

Choose from our three fantastic event spaces, including the outdoor Riverside Lawn with Matilda Deck and two upstairs function rooms: the Col Taylor Lounge and Kilburn Hall. All of our spaces boast striking river and city views to impress your guests, while the private club atmosphere adds an air of exclusivity to your occasion.

For larger functions, our Riverside Lawn has the capacity to accommodate up to 2000 guests cocktail style or 1000 guests seated. For small-to-medium parties and celebrations, our function rooms can hold between 100 – 300 people, each including the use of a private bar and balcony overlooking the water. The venue also comes with 70 complimentary onsite parking bays which will take the stress and cost out of parking for your guests.

Mounts Bay Sailing Club offers a refreshing alternative setting to the standard hotel function room or bar, taking your celebration to the next level and ensuring it remains a lifelong memory. Our guests are often surprised at the sheer space and level of privacy we have to offer – not to mention Perth’s most incredible views!

Why is Mounts Bay Sailing Club the best celebration and party venue in Perth?

Make unforgettable memories with the ones you love at Perth’s very best outdoor function space. The Club’s expansive lawn area on the banks of the Swan is a fantastic location for summer events, but can also accommodate marquees for other seasons.

The Riverside Lawn is fully licensed and comes with an outdoor Riverside Bar, the undercover Matilda Deck area, ground floor catering kitchen, designated ground floor washrooms and 3 phase power for large event productions.

Previous Events In This Space Have Included:

  • Sundowners
  • Milestone Birthday Parties
  • Afternoon Teas & Picnics
  • Kids’ Parties
  • Wakes

Please note the Riverside Lawn is unavailable on Sundays between October – April.

As the smaller of our two function rooms, The Col Taylor Lounge is perfect for intimate functions, cocktail receptions or part of a full upstairs booking where multiple rooms are required. Full use of the balcony and adjacent bar lounge are included when you host your party or special occasion in the Col Taylor Lounge.

Access to the catering kitchen is via our larger function room, Kilburn Hall, and only one function room is ever hired out at a time on this level of the building. So, even though you may have hired the Col Taylor Room, there will be no concurrent bookings sharing the upstairs space, ensuring a private atmosphere.

Previous Events In This Space Have Included:

  • Engagement
  • Parties
  • Milestone Birthday Parties
  • Baby Showers
  • Hens or Bucks Parties
  • Wakes
  • Afternoon Teas

Located just opposite The Col Taylor Lounge, Kilburn Hall is the perfect traditional style function room with large in-built dance floor and stage, in addition to optional ceiling drapes and chandelier. The large balcony doors provide access to sweeping views of the city and river, ensuring your special event is held at one of the most breathtaking function spaces in Perth.

Full use of the upstairs catering kitchen (situated next door), balcony and bar lounge come included in the hire price, offering even more space to you and your guests. Kilburn Hall is the ideal solution for those concerned about the weather and wanting a classic style function room in Perth which is ideal for sit down dinners.

Previous Events In This Space Have Included:

  • Bar Mitzvahs
  • Sangeets
  • Engagement Parties
  • Mehndi Ceremonies
  • Christenings
  • Milestone Birthday Parties
  • Wedding Showers

If you feel like you need more space than one of our upstairs function rooms can provide, you have the option to hire the entire upstairs level of the Club as an alternative. Often clients having a buffet reception use this option to avoid bottlenecks in their main event area.

Alternatively, functions or events with several entertainment areas (e.g. a photo booth, games room, etc) may find this option appealing too. The upstairs level of the Club is entirely self-contained with catering facilities, washrooms, bar and function rooms.

Previous Events In This Space Have Included:

  • Milestone Birthday Parties
  • Sangeets
  • Christmas Parties

We have a package available for every occasion

Full Venue Hire – Make Mounts Bay Sailing Club Your Own

At Mounts Bay Sailing Club, we pride ourselves in delivering one of the most stand-out and private events venues in Perth. To achieve this goal, we hire our venue spaces out by level, ensuring that guests are not disturbed by other functions.

However, some clients prefer to exclusively hire the whole venue instead, which gives them free reign over the entire property and facilities. It also provides the peace of mind that only their guests will be at the venue on the day of the event.

This option often works very well for large celebrations and parties where more than one space is needed for different components of the event. Opting to hire the entire venue provides you with maximum flexibility, enabling you to use each space according to your requirements. The only downside is that your guests may never want to leave!

Party & Events Catering At Mounts Bay

As we have no dedicated on-site caterer, Mounts Bay Sailing Club allows you the freedom to select your own catering supplier for your event. Function room hire includes the use of our catering kitchens, making the process easy and convenient for your choice of provider.

We regularly work with some of the best catering companies in Perth so we are more than happy to recommend these to you if you are unsure of where to start. We also have experience and understanding of the type of catering that suits each of our venue spaces, so we can offer advice and guidance if required. We would recommend a site visit is organised for caterers that have not been to the venue before.

Please speak with our Event Manager for catering advice or to obtain a list of local and reputable catering companies who are familiar with the venue.

Beverage Service & Beverage Package Options

When making your beverage choices for your function we have two formats for you to choose from. You can either choose a beverage package or create your own custom selection against your minimum spend or bar tab. We are more than happy to discuss drink options with you and will endeavour to get your preference of drinks in for your event.

A cocktail bar can even be set up for your event if you fancy doing something a little special for your guests. We have a wide range of experience when it comes to your mixology wishes and are happy to meet your cocktail needs!

Our staff are well trained, have their RSA certification and offer an exceptional level of customer service for each and every event. Your function will be assigned the appropriate number of staff for your total guest number as well as an Approved Bar Manager to oversee the bar operation on the night.

In addition, whilst we are happy to offer tray service for up to an hour per event, we are unable to offer table beverage service.

To find out more about our drinks packages for on-site events, see our event-specific brochures!
