Functions & Celebrations
By having your function or meeting at the surf club you assist us in providing education, and operating our lifesaving services at the beach. We are not-for-profit and hence charge club prices on bar sales for members and non-members for club functions.
The venue is located on the upper level of the surf club overlooking one of West Australia's most famous beaches - Cottesloe and is accessible by car, bus or train.
Choice of Venues
There are two areas that are available for your event, depending on your particular needs: meetings, conferences, weddings, birthdays etc.
The Don Morrison Room
Our primary function area comprises approximately 260 square metres of usable space overlooking the beautiful Cottesloe Beach, with spectacular views south to Fremantle, west to Rottnest Island and north along the spectacular coastal beaches. This lovely room can accommodate up to 160 guests for dinner and larger numbers for less formal functions. The area has bar facilities, a commercial sized kitchen and a covered balcony overlooking beautiful Cottesloe Beach.
The Pines Room
On the same upstairs level as the Don Morrison Room, the Pines Room is a smaller room suitable for meetings and smaller conferences. It can also be used for intimate dinners for up to 20 guests. The Pines Room looks out over Cottesloe beach towards the majestic Norfolk pine trees that are part of the Cottesloe landscape.
