The Boathouse Shelly Beach is a beachside weddings + events venue in Manly, Sydney.

The Boathouse is a group of waterside hospitality venues located at beautiful waterside locations in Sydney, Australia. The Boathouse, established in 2008, began with our Palm Beach, Sydney cafe. Our first wedding was held in September 2009. The Group has expanded to now consist of 8 venues, three of which offer weddings and events - The Boathouse Palm Beach, Moby Dicks Whale Beach and The Boathouse Shelly Beach. We have always aimed to create experiences people love. We do this through high quality products and ingredients as well as through service that is both genuine and fun. We firmly believe in contributing to the local community in a positive way, as we try and provide a classic Australian beachside experience. We love being a part of weddings and all things celebratory. We look forward to creating a memorable experience for your special event.

We couldn't fault a single thing with the venue or catering. The venue and food were absolutely amazing and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Not one guest said there wasn't enough food and the ambience at the venue was just magical.

We had the pleasure of working with Lucinda on our wedding at the Boathouse Shelly Beach. Lucinda and the team we’re fantastic, we couldn’t have asked for a better day. Lucinda made organising a wedding less stressful and was always prompt on getting back to us on everything, including great ideas. The food was delicious and all the guests are still raving about it (especially those arancini balls!). The service was exceptional, the staff always had a smile on their face. The venue looked amazing, walking in after the ceremony to see what a beautiful job they had done was such an exciting moment. We highly recommend the boathouse @ shelly beach :)
