Events at Tailrace

Welcome to Tailrace Events

Welcome to the Tailrace Centre, we’re so excited that you are here. We know that the vision you carry is special and you need partners who you can trust to help bring your dream to life.

We don’t want you to wait for information, to compromise your dream, to apologise to guests for the quality of the food or the AV.

You need one partner who can work with you to bring your dream to life and have everyone talking about how amazing your event was.

We have over a decade of experience running all kinds of events. You’re in good hands.

We can’t wait to work with you to create an event that your guests can’t wait to come back to.

Daryl's 60th Birthday

Name a better way to celebrate a 60th birthday than with a black tie event with 60 of your closest friends and family. 

Add a 3 course meal, birthday cake, an ice-sculpture and a band flown in from Melbourne and you have Daryl’s 60th birthday. 

We loved helping Daryl and Susie plan this epic birthday celebration.

I think you can tell by the photos that this was one cracker of a party.
