Fairfield Park Boathouse & Tea House
Fairfield Park Boathouse and Tea Gardens.
Enjoy our unique riverside venue, casual dining, Devonshire teas & traditional English boats in our stunning, inner-city bush setting.
Just 7 kilometres from the CBD and surrounded by Yarra Bend Park, you can gather and enjoy our simple, fresh and seasonal food in our friendly and relaxed atmosphere by the Yarra River.
Established in 1908 by John St Clair as a picnic, camping and refreshment room area, the boathouse has seen many changes. In 1923 it was raised by 12 feet to help minimise flood damage, in 1985 it was saved from ruin, and in 2010 it went though its most recent renovation with the addition of a riverside deck and terrace.
Tea Rooms and Restaurant
Water vehicles for hire include Rowing Skiffs, Canadian Canoes and Touring Kayaks.
Fairfield Park Boathouse is accessed from Heidelberg Road onto Fairfield Park Drive. Fairfield Park Boathouse should not be confused with Studley Park Boathouse which is situated on the east side further south down the Yarra River but still in Yarra Bend Park.
Open 10am-5pm weekdays | 8.30am-6pm weekends & public holidays | Functions and meetings anytime
Boating from 8.30am until close daily
