Wedding Receptions & Special Occasions


We have helped numerous clients over the last few decades celebrate their Special Occasion. These have included wedding receptions, anniversaries, birthdays, christenings, retirements, home-comings from overseas, engagements and family and friends 'get-togethers', to name but a few.

Our dedicated function organizer, Bill Berwick, will assist you every step of the way from your first enquiry through to the close of your special occasion. Menus, drinks, timings, seating plans, decorations, flowers, cakes, music, entertainment, special requests and requirements, etc. will all be considered to help you achieve either the formality or informality you wish and to make your occasion individual and special.

We have a number of colleagues that we have worked with over the years and we can advise you on marquee hire, entertainers, venue theming, fireworks, guest accommodation, taxis, etc.

UNFORTUATELY WE HAVE HAD TO SUSPEND ISSUING DAY TICKETS AT PRESENT DUE TO WARM SURFACE WATER AND LOW OXYGEN LEVELS IN THIS LAYER. PLEASE CALL US FOR FURTHER DETAILS.

Anglers are asked to report their catch to the lodge before leaving.
