Fairfield boathouse was established in 1908 by John St Clair as a picnic, camping and refreshment room area. John St Clair was a piano tuner from Smith street Fitzroy, with a vision. He firstly wrote a letter to the Premier suggesting that he open a refreshment room and boat shed area, with motor boats at Fairfield Park.

We hold functions for small and large groups.

Evenings are a treat but luncheons are also very popular for many occasions.

We are experienced at selecting the best spot for your gathering depending upon the weather. On balmy nights the river breeze gently fans the veranda and southern terraces overlooking the Yarra. If it turns cool we batten down the see though curtains and stoke up the wood fire.

The Boathouse has a long history of providing wedding services and receptions. We aim to make your function memorable for you and your guests by sourcing and presenting the best food and wine available in a relaxed atmosphere and gorgeous setting.

Many years of research and design resulted in our hand built rowing skiffs. In 1984 a shipwright from Portsmouth U.K was commissioned to research, design and build our first boat. They are replicas of Thames pleasure craft used in the 19th century first as work boats and later for recreation.
