Over the last two years of operating, we’ve been lucky enough to visit many fantastic venues across Perth to set up our carts for birthdays, weddings, corporate functions and brand promotions.
So with that in mind, we thought it was high time that we started to keep a track of some of our favourite venues to serve as potential inspiration for those of you who are looking to hire one of our carts for an event!
Country Club Blvd, Connolly, WA6027; (08) 9400 8888; www.joondalupresort.com.au
This fantastic venue never fails to take my breath away and is the perfect backdrop - especially for weddings. Whether it is the beautiful approach which takes you across part of the golf course, the stunning exterior of the building itself or the magnificent fountains in the gardens, we love the Joondalup Resort and its huge glass fronted event spaces.
BATHERS BEACH HOUSE
47 Mews Road, Fremantle, WA6160; (08) 9335 2911; www.bathersbeachhouse.com.au
Despite Perth being right next one of the most stunning pieces of ocean in the world, you might find it hard to find a venue right next to the beach. That’s why we love Bathers Beach House as a venue. Whilst nowhere near the same scale or elegance as Joondalup Resort, it has a chilled vibe that means it is right at home in Freo.
173 Mounts Bay Road, Perth, WA6000; (08) 9321 2588; www.zafferano.com.au
We’ve only recently discovered this place, having driven past it countless times without realising it was there. Located at the foot of Kings Park on Mounts Bay Road, with stunning views all the way across the river back to Applecross, this venue functions primarily as a restaurant but has both indoor and outdoor space that makes it ideal for one of our carts.
THE PAVILION, MINDARIE
2/33 Ocean Falls Blvd, Mindarie, WA6030; (08) 9400 1122; www.themarinamindarie.com/thepavilion
This great spot in the northern suburbs is located right on the Mindarie marina and is right next door to a hotel. There’s a really relaxed ‘poolside’ vibe about the place, that is just perfect for events that go on into the long sunny evenings. From a practical perspective for us, the staff were really helpful and accommodating around access to the venue for pickup early one morning too, so definitely check them out!
POINT WALTER RESERVE
Honour Avenue, Bicton, WA6157; www.melvillecity.com.au/things-to-do/find-venues-parks-and-reserves/point-walter-reserve
Located in Bicton within the City of Melville the reserve is split into 7 different event areas meaning that you are pretty much guaranteed to be able to find a spot for your event. The views across the river, the unique sand spit which runs right out into the middle of the Swan and its sheltered location away from the wind make it a near-perfect spot.
8 Broadway, Crawley, WA6009; 0499 900 634; www.innovation.uwa.edu.au/iqx
This spot is tucked away in Crawley, not far from the main UWA campus. The main hall is easily large enough for 150 people and is perfect for more corporate-focussed events, especially with the very professional 2m x 2m AV setup they have! The small outside courtyard, coupled with the semi-plastered exposed brick interior have an easy going, yet creative feel.
SIR JAMES MITCHELL PARK
Mill Point Rd, South Perth, WA6151; www.onlineservices.southperth.wa.gov.au/facilities/facility/sir-james-mitchell-park
If you ever seen a photo of the Perth city skyline with the river in the foreground, there’s a really decent chance it was taken from Sir James Mitchell Park. This is a large stretch of parkland comprising 15 different event zones and also takes in The Boatshed Restaurant (which itself is a great little spot by the way!). Like Point Walter, what really makes this location stand out is the views across the river - just take a look at the photo on the right. Say no more.
We’ll continually add more great Perth event venues to this page as we come across them, but hopefully for now this has given you some ideas and places to start!
