The Howard Smith Wharves have done everything right so far: there’s hot new eateries, the best brewery in town, open-aired space for the warmer evenings and you can even take your dogs for a walk through the precinct! Just when we thought they couldn’t bring us anything cooler, they open up a whole range of niche event spaces that we can’t wait to check out! Say hello to The Houses.

As of this month, The Howard Smith Wharves have unveiled two of a total four house-like event spaces, which are artfully designed to host an array of functions and occasions. All of the houses open out on to the lawns of the Wharves, with the aim to create unique and intimate spaces that evoke a feeling of a beautiful home rather than your typical run-of-the-mill event space.


The first two, (the larger venues), are named Bougainvillea and Greenhouse, and can host 200 people and 125 people respectively. Bougainvillea features a wrap-around verandah with elevated views that overlook the city skyline and Story Bridge, where it’s rustic charm makes for the perfect riverside wedding location. The Greenhouse offers its own unique style, with a lush alfresco dining area that sports soft pink and green hues making this space reminiscent of a beautiful English glasshouse.

The smaller two houses, Citrus and Wisteria, will be open soon and will be available for boardroom style meetings, small cocktail parties or bespoke private dining. This smaller-scale event locations means that no matter what you’re planning, there will be a venue for everyone at the precinct! The Howard Smith Wharves also provide catering for events held in any of The Houses, so contact their event team to plan your next soiree.
