CUSTOMS HOUSE

CUSTOMS HOUSE

Customs House event coordinators have a friendly and personalised approach from the initial enquiry, through to the planning process and right to the day itself. The professional team has a commitment to excellence and ensures all functions are a great success.

All inclusive packages are available or, alternatively, our event coordinators can organise a quote to suit specific requirements and the kitchen brigade will be happy to tailor a menu to impress guests.

Customs House has five event spaces, most with river views and all with natural light. The Long Room is the perfect setting for large functions: it is serene and majestic beneath the building's huge copper dome and with access to the Coles Myer balcony overlooking the river.

The Sylvia Jones Boardroom is an exquisite, formal showpiece featuring crystal chandeliers, marble fireplaces and an 1880s heritage cedar table. The elegance of this room is echoed in the finest crystal, silverware and napery for dining. The table has extension leaves and can seat up to a maximum of 24 persons.

Spectacular views of the river and Story Bridge, striking architecture and modern amenities are just the icing on the cake for upscale affairs in The River Room, so named for its riverside location in the surrounds of the historical Customs House.

Once a part of the Queens Warehouse, the brand new space flows seamlessly out onto the waterfront terrace, making for a breathtaking backdrop to any occasion. Inside, the most eye-catching feature is a dazzling geometric ceiling, an architecture designed pattern of triangular bronze panels which give a unique, contemporary edge to the classical setting. The flexible space can be adapted to host banquets for up to 120, cocktail soirees for up to 200 and cabaret style events for up to 100.

The River Room can also be transformed into a theatre for an audience of up to 200. For smaller functions, a moveable wall can create more intimate spaces, while those planning welcome drinks for their event can take advantage of the curtained cocktail area. State-of-the-art amenities include three high-definition data projectors with built-in wide screens, HDMI connections, touch panel controls, and Wi-Fi availability.

The award wining restaurant provides inside dining in heritage surroundings as well as outside dining overlooking the river and the Story Bridge. Enjoy fresh seasonal produce and local seafood that is sourced daily by the Customs House kitchen brigade. Guests can be assured of excellent food, fantastic river views and friendly, professional service. The wine list has quality wines from local, national and international wineries.
