An enchanted evening awaits guests for the Speakers’ Dinner with a romantic river cruise en route to our prestigious venue at Royal South Yarra Lawn Tennis Club. After a stimulating day of presentations, guests may travel independently to dinner (10 mins by car from the city or take a no. 8 tram) or choose the barge option, enjoying the ambience of a leisurely stroll along the Yarra’s riverside promenade to the Southbank departure point (15 mins walk from the Convention Centre).
A half hour cruise through Melbourne’s picturesque South Yarra neighbourhood concludes at the Como Landing, where guests will be directed to the Club – 5 mins across the park. Barges include the meticulously restored Elizabeth Ann, the ‘Royal Barge’ which has transported the Duke of Edinburgh, Queen Elizabeth II and various other notables.
Please join our speakers, for a relaxed evening of good company and conversation at this very special private venue. The Club has been an integral part of the Melbourne scene since the 1880’s. Born in an age of grace and manners, the Club has retained its charm. Guests may return to Southbank by barge or arrange their own transport home. Ample parking in Williams Road next to the Club.
