Boasting what is arguably the best position in town, right in the heart of The Strand with spectacular ocean views out to Magnetic Island, The Surf Club is the functions arm of the The Townsville Picnic Bay Surf Life Saving Club.
An adaptable indoor/outdoor venue, The Surf Club has a large indoor function room, spacious covered deck and the exclusive ability to extend private functions onto the adjacent Burke St Headland. As Events and Functions Manager, it’s Rachel Moodie’s job to make sure the venue is booked out Monday through to Saturday and oversee public/member openings every Sunday.
“We’re perfect for conferences, meetings or workshops for up to 50 people during the week with an amazing break-out space on the deck (fits up to 200) complete with all the expected facilities – projector, screen, audio/speakers and café-quality coffee machine,” Rachel says. “In addition, our bar/deck means you can offer your delegates a well-earned knock-off drink post-conference.”
Any night of the week, The Surf Club deck is ideal for a cocktail or dinner party with the function room becoming the dance floor to dance the night away.
“Our venue is also an idyllic wedding setting,” Rachel says. “With our ability to extend our liquor licence onto the headland, we can offer a seamless ceremony and reception location.”
