The City of Melville’s Goolugatup Heathcote in Applecross is a state heritage-listed site with a rich history and beautiful grounds overlooking the river. Please note: we no longer offer venue hire outside of outdoors weddings.

About this space

Overlooking the river with stunning views of the city, Goolugatup Heathcote Reserve (pictured) is a unique location perfect for your special day. A wide triangular turfed area, it sits in front of the restaurant, beside landmark trees and remnant bushland, and is a short walk down hill to the river's edge.

Wedding Ceremonies are the only booking we take for the Reserve. A maximum of 100 guests is permitted, but we recommend 60-80. This is a busy location, which can sometimes make parking difficult. There is very limited shelter at Goolugatup Heathcote Reserve so keep an eye on the weather forecast in the leadup to your booking.

Goolugatup Heathcote is also home to Goolugatup Heathcote Gallery, artist studios, workshop spaces, a world class restaurant and a popular children's playground. More information about Goolugatup Heathcote can be found at

Goolugatup Heathcote Reserve is a public area, so you are welcome to view at your convenience. To speak to someone about your booking, please contact Goolugatup Heathcote Gallery by messaging us on SpacetoCo, emailing [email protected], or calling 9364 5666.
