Functions

Steele’s Island also provides the perfect setting for functions of any kind: an intimate beach or bush wedding, an engagement, a special birthday, an anniversary or family reunion.  Minimum nights, guest numbers or prices apply. 

The large living and entertainment room will seat up to fifty guests comfortably and provides room for a DJ or band, and dancing.  The bar alcove is adjacent to this area and the large deck overlooking the river and beach can also be accessed from these rooms.  The retreat is a licensed establishment and there are several, flexible options with regard to the provision, costing and serving of alcohol for functions.  The Beach Cottage provides idyllic accommodation for the Bride and Groom and the wedding guests, international, interstate or local, can be accommodated in the Homestead.  See Accommodation.

Guests may self-cater or elect to have the retreat's staff cater with a variety of delicious and varied menus to suit any occasion, taste and budget.  An extensive vegetarian menu is also available. 

To assist guests who are self-catering, the country kitchen, which is a chef’s delight, is equipped with three ovens, gas hot plates, three fridges and freezers, a microwave-convection oven and a dishwasher. Ample crockery, cutlery, serving utensils and dishes are available, together with tablecloths, additional timber chairs and trestle tables for indoor or outdoor dining.
