Event Facilities in Hobart

If you’re after a venue with waterfrontage, it doesn’t get much closer to the River Derwent than the Boardwalk Gallery- a perfect venue for cocktail receptions, trade exhibits or product launches. 

The Boardwalk Gallery is all about location. Hosting your event here offers the type of waterfrontage where your guests can nearly dip their toes in the River Derwent. Overlooking Wrest Point’s boardwalk and private pier, the gallery lends itself beautifully to social occasions, cocktail receptions, product launches, meals and trade exhibits. 

Located on the Lower Level of the Conference Centre, adjacent to the Wellington Foyer, this ground level location connects you closely with the water. Rather than the sweeping views of the tower or upper level rooms, our Boardwalk Gallery provides an intimate, waterside experience. 

Large automatic doors provide access for a range of equipment including vehicles. The gallery enjoys floor to ceiling windows to capture the view along one side of the venue, whether it be for a working lunch or cocktail hour. Plus, with new carpet and a recent re-paint the Boardwalk Gallery enjoys a fresh new look. 

Please note there are blackout curtains available to accommodate smaller presentations in one section of the room. As always, our event coordination team can discuss options with you, to maximise the Boardwalk Gallery and make it work for your special event.
