For an impressive lunch or dinner with a difference. Leonda By The Yarra is the ultimate venue choice.

Located on the banks of the Yarra River in Hawthorn, just a short boat, tram or train ride from the CBD (we also have 150 complimentary car parking spaces on site for your guests who prefer to drive), Leonda is a breath of fresh air in a tranquil location.

Our 2 modern event spaces accommodate 60 - 580 guests banquet style and offer views of the river and surrounding greenery. Both are pillar-free and feature large dance floors (which can be covered if not required) and built in AV facilities. Adjoining the Ballroom is our sophisticated Marble Bar, while the Garden Room has it’s own private courtyard overlooking the water; both perfect settings for welcome drinks and canapés.

From the moment your guests arrive, our focus is on creating an experience that they will remember. From our outstanding service to the sumptuous dishes created by our chefs, your guests will be impressed.

At Leonda you will be allocated your own experienced event coordinator that will work with you throughout to ensure you planning is seamless and stress free.
