Leonda By The Yarra - an elegant venue with endless possibilities for an unforgettable and enchanting evening

Creating a memorable gala dinner requires a combination of splendid food and wine, eye-catching decorations, amazing atmosphere and captivating entertainment – all encompassed in an elegant space. At Leonda By The Yarra, we have the ideas, experience, resources and skills to make that happen.

In banquet style, our grand Ballroom can accommodate up to 580 guests while our intimate Garden Room accommodates up to 165. Both versatile banquet rooms can be set up with stage, lights and dance floor to suit the entertainment program for the evening.

Selecting a theme for the event sets the mood for the night. The theme transpires into an atmospheric setting – with colour, props, lighting, decorations and fittings transforming the room. At Leonda, we have the expertise and resources to make your theme come true!

To add that special touch for an unforgettable evening, you have the option of hosting an exclusive pre-dinner cocktail and canapés event on a luxury vessel that will dock at the Leonda private Jetty.
