ABOUT THE VENUE:
The Adelaide Rowing Club Function Centre is situated on the Southern Bank of the Torrens Lake (between Morphett Street & King William Street), immediately behind the Convention Centre.
The Clubroom, which is on the first level of the boathouse, commands sweeping views from the Morphett St bridge and Memorial Drive, across to Adelaide Oval to Elder Park, King William St and the Festival Theatre.
Being an active sports club founded in 1882, the clubroom reflects its rich history, with many original photographs dating from the late 1880’s to the present day. Many of the Club’s trophies are on display, some adorning the walls alongside the Club’s ornate “Honour rolls” and its lists of past office bearers.
It is a room full of traditional character, with highlights provided by wood panelling and exposed wooden beams, plus there is a large balcony for outdoor dancing or if you just want to take in the city lights and scenery.
