BBQs for hire
Bookings suspended due to COVID-19
Effective 23 March 2020, Council has suspended public space venue bookings until further notice due to coronavirus (COVID-19) conditions. This includes bookings for our community halls, meeting rooms and outdoor public spaces.
We're currently getting in touch with those who have existing bookings. Only bookings that comply with current Australian Government directives around social gatherings will be able to proceed. We strongly recommend that all non-essential bookings be cancelled or postponed, regardless of size.
These measures will be in place until further notice. We apologise for any inconvenience.
- Please refer to our COVID-19 webpage for more information on Council services and response initiatives.
The BBQ facilities are not available for hire: Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Years Eve, New Years Day & Australia Day. The BBQ's will still be available free for public use during this time.
For a birthday, fundraiser or community event, one of the 12 BBQ facilities along the Esplanade offer a great place to hold your next event.
The BBQ facilities are open from 6am - 9pm daily and are free for public use or available for exclusive hire.
Hiring a BBQ means that the BBQ is cleaned and reserved for your event. Simply complete a booking enquiry form at least 10 working days prior to your event and we will contact you to discuss your event needs and provide a quote.
Bookings are required for groups of 50 people or more and for any pre-arranged or advertised activity including fundraisers. Please refer to the Leisure Venues fees & charges for details on hire costs.
Please note BBQ Egret and BBQ Sandpiper are not available for hire.
