Front and centre to Geelong’s magnificent waterfront and glittering bay, the Waterfront Kitchen is a dream location.

It’s super accessible from all major accommodation options and in the heart of a vibrant and lively precinct. 

Originally built as wool stores in the 19th century, the buildings have been extensively renovated, creating a modern, impressive campus (Deakin University) that invites the public to engage with history and embrace the exciting new chapter of this historic site. Ceilings soar and huge, rustic wooden beams dissect glassed and ultra-modern spaces. Make a grand entrance down an open staircase or spill out to alfresco zones for glorious water views.

Western Beach Room and Waterfront Kitchen are the two major spaces for functions and weddings.

Western Beach Room is the penthouse, situated on the on the north east of the sixth (top) floor, affording commanding panoramic views across Corio Bay to the You Yangs by day and, by night, the sparkling city lights. You and your guests will never forget the impressive backdrop. With a capacity to seat 80 along with a spacious balcony allowing extra space for pre or post dinner mingling/networking, it’s a spectacular room 

The downstairs café shares the same central location but at ground level. The feel is industrial chic. Timber and steel combine to create a huge versatile space on two levels, establishing a dynamic, engagingly informal vibe – a place to party with 300 of your closest friends.
