I realise that Spring has just sprung and all that but have YOU realised that there are only 86 more days until Christmas? Which means, when we get right down to it, that you don’t actually have a whole lot of time to get your Christmas party happening. Time is marching on my friends and whether you are organising something for yourself, your workplace or a surprise Christmas party for the family, NOW is the time to get your venue and your chef (hint hint) organised and booked.
To make life that much easier for you I have sourced and researched 7 of the best (in my opinion) self-catering Christmas party venues in Perth. So, without further adieu and in no particular order - here they are.
Christmas Party Venue # 1 - Mosman Park Bowling Club
Corner Bay View Terrace & Johnson Parade, Claremont
Phone: 9384 7951
Described on their website as “the Club with the million dollar view” I have checked it out and definitely can’t argue with that. The setting is stunning overlooking the beautiful Swan River and the Perth city skyline with the Darling Ranges as the backdrop. Absolutely magnificent.
This venue is able to cater for 80 people dining or 150 for a stand-up cocktail event and is fully licensed.
Christmas Party Venue # 2 - Mounts Bay Sailing Club
Australia II Drive, Pelican Point, Crawley
Ph: (08) 9386 5839
I have to say that the views from the MBSC are just as stunning as the Mosman Park Bowling Club which, I guess, is understandable when we are lucky enough to live in such a beautiful city. Views at the Mounts Bay Sailing Club take in Matilda Bay and the Perth city skyline.
This venue offers three different function areas which are available for groups of 10 up to 500 people. Their dining options include the lawn with Marque if required, balcony with unobstructed views and formal Kilburn Hall with dance floor.
Christmas Party Venue # 3 - Nedlands Yacht Club
The Esplanade, Nedlands
Phone: (08) 9386 5496
This newly renovated venue boasts the Clubs WA 2015 Award for Private Functions and once again has spectacular views of the beautiful Swan River and Perth CBD. There is venue capacity for 200 people seated inside with use of bar, veranda and BBQ facilities.
Christmas Party Venue #4 - Maylands Yacht Club
East Street (Adjacent to Bardon Park), Maylands
Phone: 0434 458 723
Nestled on the banks of the Swan River in Maylands, the Club Rooms here are available for private functions at reasonable rates. The Club supplies the venue and use of its facilities including commercial kitchen and bar area.
Christmas Party Venue #5 - Matilda Bay Reserve
Hackett Drive, off Mounts Bay Road, Crawley
Perhaps you would like to organise something a little bit less formal but at the same time take in a few rays, enjoy the beautiful Perth climate, relax and let the kids run amok. If so, you might like to consider the Matilda Bay Reserve.
Favoured for numerous types of social activities, this area is very popular with visitors, cyclists, rowers and picnickers alike. The facilities offer free electric BBQs and again a stunning backdrop of the city and the Swan River.

Christmas Party Venue # 6 - West Australian Rowing Club
171 Riverside Drive, about 150m east of Barrack Square, Perth
Phone: 9325 6525
The River Room
This little gem is described as Perth’s best kept secret when it comes to self-catering venues. This delightful venue is fully licensed and can cater for 80 people dining or 130 for a stand-up cocktail event.
Bookings include the expertise of the Rowing Club’s full-time events and functions manager who will work with your caterer to ensure your party is a success.
Christmas Party Venue #7 - Swan River Rowing Club
2 The Esplanade, Mount Pleasant
Phone: (08) 9316 8812
My final little beauty is the Swan River Rowing Club in Applecross. This venue boasts balconies and beautiful views of…..you guessed it, the magnificent Swan River and Perth skyline.
It has kitchen and bar facilities and will seat 85 guests dining or 150 for a stand-up cocktail event.
So there you have it my friends. Not exactly in a nutshell but precise enough for you to check out in your own time. Remembering of course that time is ticking.
At this stage, I feel that I would love to wish you all a very “Merry Christmas” …….but probably a tad early for that.
Happy booking !!!
