Hiring of Club Rooms
Imagine yourself celebrating that special occasion on the edge of Port Phillip Bay – one of the world’s most beautiful stretches of water. Come sunset, looking out the window you can experience the setting of the sun over the distant You Yang ranges and have the last remaining sunlight glittering on the water in front of you.
All this can be experienced with the hire of the Beaumaris Yacht Club rooms. Elevated from the beach, the club has two large rooms with a westerly aspect. One room with polished timber floor, one with carpet, you can choose to use either or both for your guests to enjoy.
To enjoy your function at the Beaumaris Yacht Club, the following is available:
- 2 large rooms with westerly aspect – 1 room with polished timber floor, 1 with carpet and gas heating,
- Small commercial kitchen with dishwasher, glass washer, oven, microwave oven, pie-warmer and commercial refrigerator,
- Seating for 100 guests,
- Small domestic stereo system,
- Male and female change-rooms/toilet facilities found on the ground floor,
- Council car park directly adjacent with free parking in the evening.
The Beaumaris Yacht Club does not have in-house caterers, so some flexibility is available here. For those wishing to self-cater this is the ideal venue – simply pre-prepare or take over the kitchen for your requirements.
If you are seeking a caterer for your event however this can be arranged with our preferred caterer; a great benefit to your function with their knowledge of the kitchen and how it best be used to meet your requirements.
With our location and facilities, Beaumaris Yacht Club has successfully hosted functions such as:
- Cocktail Parties
- Family Reunions
- Engagement Parties
- Birthday Parties
- School Groups Exploring the Marine Park
And Corporate Events such as:
- Product Launches
- Business Planning Retreats
- Training and Development Sessions
Regulations and Restrictions

Nothing is more frustrating than having to set up quickly just before your function is due to start. With this in mind, your hiring period for the club starts the evening prior to your function. You will be presented with the keys to the club after being introduced to the lighting and power points and once an inspection of the club has occurred. This way you have some flexibility as to when you wish to move in and set-up.
Please be aware that the toilets are located on the lower level of the club down one flight of stairs from the function rooms. All access to the club is via stairs at some point – as such this may not be appropriate for disabled or some elderly persons.
Price for Hire
For the term of a single day event, key pick-up the night before the function to final inspection, we charge $990.00 (this includes the application fee for a Temporary Limited Liquor License, a security doorman and public liability insurance). A refundable bond of $900 is also payable upon making the booking. This will returned to you upon post-inspection of the club to ensure no damages that are to be paid for. For corporate events running longer than one day, a price will be provided upon submission of requirements. For pricing relating to the use of the facilities for school groups as a part of an education program please contact us.
The clubrooms are available during most days and evenings. However, during the club sailing season, October through April inclusive, the rooms will not be available on Sundays.
To arrange an inspection of the Beaumaris Yacht Club rooms, please contact Brigid to arrange a mutually convenient time to meet at the club. Alternatively, during sailing season, October through April inclusive, you are welcome to visit without appointment and talk to a member of the Yacht Club Committee of Management. Please be aware though, that due to inter-club events and external regattas, there may be some Sundays that the club is unattended.
