ABOUT

The Boathouse is a group of unique and iconic hospitality venues located at beautiful waterside locations in Sydney, Australia.

The Boathouse, established in 2008 by Pip and Andrew Goldsmith, began with our Palm Beach, Sydney café.

The Group has expanded to now consist of 8 venues, and is operated by Heath Bambridge, one of the earliest members of the Boathouse team. We have an outstanding team of over 450 people who help make the venues what they are today.

We have always aimed to create experiences people love. We do this through high quality products and ingredients as well as through service that is both genuine and fun. We firmly believe in contributing to the local community in a positive way as we try and provide a classic Australian beachside experience.

The most recent additions to the group are:

The Boathouse Hotel Patonga

This is our first venue on the Central Coast located in a picturesque fishing village. We have combined our simple Boathouse style with an already iconic Australian Hotel location.

Barrenjoey House

A heritage listed restaurant and guesthouse located in Palm Beach. We look forward to operating this historic venue and maintaining the relaxed, yet sophisticated experience Barrenjoey House is known for. 

The Boathouse Home and Bakery

This Palm Beach store is a collection of interiors and homeware items, inspired by our venues, and includes an interior design service. This store is also home to our Group bakery offering a selection of bread, cakes and pastries and of course a small takeaway café offering.
