Back in 1863 the Burn Family established the first boathouse on the Yarra River, and aptly named it ‘Riversdale’. Today, this same boathouse is known as the Studley Park Boathouse and stands fabulously restored, rich with history and is proudly known as the oldest public boathouse on the Yarra.
The Studley Park Boathouse has long been recognised as one of Melbourne’s oldest and most iconic establishments and has served as a boating and dining favourite for decades.
Join us, for a piece of Melbourne’s yesterday, today.
The Restaurant is a beautifully restored Victorian/Edwardian residence at Studley Park Boathouse. It offers a glassed-in verandah area set amongst natural bushland and old English elm trees.
The Indoor/Outdoor Boathouse Café with its uninterrupted river view, casual atmosphere and fabulous seasonal menus, specialises in fresh local produce and has become one of the most exciting and unique venues in Melbourne.
The kiosk offers an assortment of drinks and treats ranging from filled baguettes, focaccias, and pies to slices, cakes, and freshly baked muffins. Reservations are not required so come down at your leisure.
