Venue Hire

The Geographe Bay Yacht Club can be found in the heart of the beautiful Geographe region in the South West of Western Australia. The Club facility is situated on the beach front end of King Street, Busselton, in a prime location with stunning views of the Cape including a magnificent vista of the Busselton Jetty. Our location provides a stunning option for a wedding but please be aware that we are a working Yacht Club and although we hire the whole venue out for 24hrs, our members will still have access to the boat ramp and the general public access to the beach.

Our venue is a much sort after establishment for weddings and receptions and although we are firstly a Yacht Club for members, we do hire out our facilities from time to time.  However, during the sailing season, which runs from November - March, we are unable to book Friday or Saturday weddings as these evenings are dedicated to our members and their guests. Only Sunday or mid week bookings are permitted during this period. We do have limited dates available between the Xmas and New Year when sailing does not happen. As part of the hire arrangement, the hirer will need to become a social member.

The Geographe Bay Yacht Club holds a full Club license and all beverages must be purchased from the Club. 

We also have a dedicated caterer on site called Foodlosophy. You will need to contact them directly to arrange your catering once your dates are secure. They are happy to offer catering to suit your needs including BBQ, platters, cocktail, and full sit down menus.

We recommend Wes Enterprizes for your Event styling and room decorations, but you are welcome to organise your own.
