Customs House event coordinators have a friendly and personalised approach from the initial enquiry, through to the planning process and right to the day itself. The professional team has a commitment to excellence and ensures all functions are a great success.
All inclusive packages are available or, alternatively, our event coordinators can organise a quote to suit specific requirements and the kitchen brigade will be happy to tailor a menu to impress guests.
Customs House has five event spaces, most with river views and all with natural light. The Long Room is the perfect setting for large functions: it is serene and majestic beneath the building's huge copper dome and with access to the Coles Myer balcony overlooking the river.
The Sylvia Jones Boardroom is an exquisite, formal showpiece featuring crystal chandeliers, marble fireplaces and an 1880s heritage cedar table. The elegance of this room is echoed in the finest crystal, silverware and napery for dining. The table has extension leaves and can seat up to a maximum of 24 persons.
Spectacular views of the river and Story Bridge, striking architecture and modern amenities are just the icing on the cake for upscale affairs in The River Room, so named for its riverside location in the surrounds of the historical Customs House.
The award wining restaurant provides inside dining in heritage surroundings as well as outside dining overlooking the river and the Story Bridge. Enjoy fresh seasonal produce and local seafood that is sourced daily by the Customs House kitchen brigade. Guests can be assured of excellent food, fantastic river views and friendly, professional service. The wine list has quality wines from local, national and international wineries.
